This is the third match of GameOgre.com’s MMORPG Showdown 7.  This annual tournament determines the best MMORPG out of 16 games. The winner will be named MMORPG of the Year. GameOgre.com also has a Prediction Contest for forum members each year for a $10 Ultimate Game Card (UGC).

Star Wars: The Old Republic


Lord of the Rings Online

These two major MMORPGs have a lot in common despite representing two different genres. Both are based on popular entertainment franchises that consist of successful books and movies galore. Both also have free-to-play options after initially being pay-t0-play. Lord of the Rings Online in particular has done well using the F2P model.  That said, who do you think should win? Stars wars: The Old Republic is much newer and does have the Showdown experience of its opponent.
