Since Final Fantasy 11 isn't on this list anywhere this thread should be eradicated.

There are no 4 and 5. If you include other games, re read the title.
My only problem with your list is WoW and EQ. WoW is certaintly the most popular, and was a AAA MMO 8 years ago; however, its outdated graphics are no longer good enough to be considored AAA quality. EQ has a special place in my heart as I played it for many years. But, no longer can it be considored AAA.

Well I get where you're coming from but who has time to try, let alone play 5 current titles?

High production values are great to have, but gameplay always trumps bells and whistles.

1 SWG, I have my greatest MMO memories from this game, until they ruined it completly.

2 WoW, I have spent way to much time of my life in this game, it is sad really. But still it is also the best MMO on the market now, at least the most polished. Right now I am taking a break from it though, playing SWTOR instead.

3 SWTOR, best quest system in an MMO, but also the most linear. They failed utterly on the gear department, I have yet to look like a real Jedi instead of looking like my character really hate his hair. All the cool gear is given to NPCs and apperantly shown in most marketing stuff. :S People has been asking for a hood toggle since release, has anything been done... nope... Still the Star Wars setting and other class stories drives me back, if it where not for the Star Wars theme, I would have stopped playing a long time ago.

4 Warhammer online, I loved this game, but so few did it seems, as I stopped because of the flawed mechanics of the public quests. Was not possible to do them since there was to few people. What they did get right, is how gear looked. I refuse to believe that some of the same designers are working on SWTOR, as all the gear for my orc in War looked awesome. Mostly all the gear I have on my JK looks like crap.

5 Eve online, not my thing, but I know it is a good game in itself.
The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be… Unnatural.

CoH (soon to be replaced by SWTOR, since it is being closed)

Current MMO's like the op asked are.

1.) WoW
2.) Swtor
4.) Rift
5.) AoC

People complain about the state of MMO's today but I've pretty much enjoyed every major release the past 5-6 years. The only one I picked up which I didn't care for was mmo messiah Guild Wars 2. Hated the homogenized classes and abilities and spvp was poorly designed.

1 - SWTOR - Jedi Consular

2 - SWTOR - Imperial Agent

3 - SWTOR - Trooper

4 - SWTOR - Smuggler

5 - SWTOR - Sith Inquisitor

Honestly I love this game and play only this most of my time

BUUUTTT if you MUST ask

1. SWTOR - Love it, to death

2. AION - Very nostalgic! Has beautiful landscapes, music. Very relaxing and good flashbacks.

3. RIFT - Love archer classes when I played fantasy and this is one of the best

4. TERA - The manual aim combat was kind of cool along with the ost and landscapes

5. The Repopulation - Once it comes out anyway. it it looking great!

Big huge gap between these.

2. WoW
3. The Secret World

TSW doesn't get nearly enough credit. They do something at least somewhat different for parts of the game. They actually add player driven content and have monthly content updates. Yet people won't even look at the game. So frustrating after seeing so many jaded bittervet MMO'ers complain about innovation and wanting something different.

4. Rift

I dont know about AAA, there was a time when developers made games as a passion and not as a gold mine of revenue.

So my top 5 MMORPGs of all time are

1) Never Winter Nights on AOL - circa 1991-97 (this is NOT the Bioware game of same name)
2) Dark Age of Camelot
everything after this point is subjective at best
3) EverQuest
4) EverQuest 2
5) The Realms

Everquest and Everquest 2 get on my list mostly because of after the fact issues. While I played them, there was much I wanted fixed and done (much like TOR) but after I left I find myself desiring the things they did do correctly. They added to the genre despite having issues that plagued their game play after launch. I suspect TOR will become another title like them for me. Needing massive work to be complete, but what it did add to the genre should be a staple of MMORPGs going forward.

No game restriction is so dire that $15.00/month will not eliminate it
