mine: rift

I really want to get into another MMO game but I’m having a hard time deciding which one. I’ve narrowed it down to WoW, Rift, Tera, and Guild Wars 2 and I would like some feedback and advice.

Rift and Tera are nice since they’re free, but is there going to be too many hidden costs in them? Like you can’t get this awesome as fuck thing unless you buy it for $20? Also what is the gameplay/community like?

Guild Wars is a one time purchase, but with additional perks purchasable too right? What exactly am I going to be wanting to buy after getting the actual game? How much am I looking to spend here and is it worth it? Same question about gameplay and community.

And WoW, I know I’ll love WoW but ehhh the subscription thing is daunting and isn’t it a lot of in game purchases too? A lot of grinding and senseless quests? I know it’d be fun but I’m wondering if one of the others might not be better.

I guess what I’m asking is which one would you recommend and why?
