Top 5 Sci-Fi MMOs and MMORPGs of 2011

There has been a lot of buzz about a particular Sci-Fi MMORPG recently and it got me thinking about how few options there are for fans of the genre. With a tremendous amount of Fantasy MMOs and MMORPGs being released each year, it seems that this rich genre is being left in the shadows. It’s a shame really because even though there may not be as many offerings available, there are some gems hidden away that shouldn’t be missed. This is why today, MMOGames is bringing you the Top 5 Sci-Fi MMOs and MMORPGs of 2011. These are our picks for the Sci-Fi MMOs and MMORPGs that we enjoyed most this year and we hope you enjoy them too.

#1 EVE Online

*free trial available.

EVE Online is a subscription-based Sci-Fi MMOG set tens of thousands of years in the future. Boasting the largest online virtual universe ever made, players will explore New Eden, a collection of over 7,500 solar systems. In New Eden take on the role of a space pilot, make your own decision about who you want to be and what you want to do. Truly the best Sci-Fi MMORPG available and the largest online universe ever created.

#2 Star Wars: The Old Republic

Visit the Official Site.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is a subscription-based Sci-Fi MMORPG by Bioware. Set thousands of years before the rise of Darth Vader, players will choose their side in the war between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire. With over 100 hours of unique storyline for each of the 8 available classes, SWTOR offers story-driven questing like no other. Are you a fan of Knights of the Old Republic or Mass Effect? You will love SWTOR as it borrows the companion and conversation systems from these titles and introduces them MMOs for the first time.

#3 Black Prophecy

Black Prophecy is a 3D, Sci-Fi Action MMORPG that combines gorgeous 3D visuals of the infinite vastness of space with fast-paced, real-time battles. Black Prophecy also offers a full-feature ship customization system, which allows you to build your own space fighter from the group up. Ever wished EVE Online had twitch-based action combat rather than point-and-click navigation? Look no further, Black Prophecy acts a smaller scale EVE with twitch-based action combat.

#4 Pirate Galaxy

Pirate Galaxy is a Browser-Based, space combat MMORPG set in the distant future featuring breakthrough 3D graphics and astonishing visual effects. Unlike most Browser-Based MMORPG games, Pirate Galaxy looks and plays exactly like an MMORPG that would normally require a large download and install. Why settle for a text-based browser game when you can enjoy a 3D game you would expect from a client-based MMO?

#5 Star Supremacy

Star Supremacy is a F2P Browser-Based Sci-Fi MMORTS. Earth has depleted its resources and now the race to colonize the universe has begun, conquer space and expand your colony fighting against both computer and player controlled opponents. Recruit commanders to help micromanage your colony and become the ultimate force in the universe and defeat players from all around the world. Star Supremacy is one of our favorite browser-based Sci-Fi MMOs, give it a try and find out why.
