All MMORPG (Role-Playing Games) developed for the PC (Windows) platform.

Due to the massive size of RPG titles available for the PC, I've broken them up into three distinct categories; Epic RPG, Action RPG, and Massive Multiplayer Online RPG (MMORPG). Though some hybrid titles and recent FPS-style RPGs really blur up these RPG genres, the best way to distinguish them is this way:

Epic RPG: Massive worlds, long gameplay (50+ hrs is typical), very detailed levelling up & characters stats, more open-ended gameplay, slower-paced but detailed quests. (Oblivion, Baldur's Gate)

Action RPG: Hack'n'slash gameplay, more linear storyline, usually automated levelling up and less dialog with NPC characters, which gives it more action feel to the game. (Diablo, Dungeon Siege)

MMORPG: Any RPG played online in a massive universe populated by peer gamers. (World of Warcraft, EverQuest)


This list is sorted by Listal popularity, but unreleased titles are at the end of the list until launch date.

I think I've got most of them, but if missed one, please let me know via comments below.
