Games You Should Play If You're Sick Of World Of Warcraft

World of Warcraft has been a colossal giant in the MMO industry since its inception way back in 2004. There is a good chance that gamers across the globe are forced to listen to the Azerothian gossip every time a new expansion is released. It is easy to see why people are so enamored with World of Warcraft. The game became an instant classic during the original vanilla release — which is probably why Blizzard Entertainment decided to recapture the magic with World of Warcraft: Classic.


However, World of Warcraft is not for everyone. Some new players may not be able to get into the slower-paced fighting mechanics or the simplified graphics. And sometimes there is just way too much general information and lore to digest in one sitting. Sometimes, even veteran players can just become bored with the game.

Luckily, the MMO and other RPGs have thrived and evolved. It has never been easier to move on to a new game. If you're feeling tired of WoW, here's what you should check out next.

Final Fantasy 14

Much like World of WarcraftFinal Fantasy has been an absolute monster of a franchise since its debut. While Final Fantasy 14 didn't start off particularly well, it has improved greatly over the years.


One of the most enjoyable aspects offered by Final Fantasy 14 is its class system. Players no longer have to go through the painful process of searching for a tank or a healer — characters can swap between roles whenever they need to, making putting together a party easier than ever before. Final Fantasy 14 has a wide range of options. Players can spend their time running trials, raids, map dungeons, and housing. World of Warcraft players have been asking for housing features for ages, but Final Fantasy 14 already has them available.

Also like World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy 14 is a subscription-based game, but players can play a free trial up to level 60.

League of Legends

Players always want something new. If you're looking for something more competitively engaging, look no further than League of Legends. The popular MOBA has become one of the most dominant games in competitive gaming. Riot Games' League of Legends took home the awards for best esports event and best esports game at The Game Awards in 2020.


League of Legends is a team-based strategy game where two teams set off in an effort to destroy each other's base. The map is static, and there is no open world roaming system, but League of Legends is still filled with rich lore that Final Fantasy players may enjoy. With every new season of League of Legends, there are plenty of changes in the item shop that have even veteran players relearning the game and its new mechanics. Riot Games goes out of its way to make the game feel fresh, so it's always a good time to hop on board.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Sometimes familiarity is the best choice of action. One of EA's best Star Wars gamesStar Wars: The Old Republic offers a similar experience to the World of Warcraft titan. So much of this Star Wars game is based on many of the key features that made World of Warcraft great, including plenty of lore, along with huge and elaborate maps. Players never know what they might come across.


In many ways, Star Wars: The Old Republic is a continuation of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series. In fact, Revan, the former hero from KOTOR, makes his return in the Star Wars: The Old Republic - Shadow of Revan expansion.

If you're tempted to play this Star Wars title for its similarities to World of Warcraft, then you're in luck. The game currently has a free-to-play option where players can play up to level 60.
