Or perhaps even an MMO that can be played offline, if such a thing exists. "Why would you want to play an MMO offline?" You ask. "What the hell kind of sick weirdo are you?" Well I would rather play by myself as I said, but I've run out of things to play. For some reason the last time I asked that on a forum someone got very upset with me.
I've been looking at Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures because I can get it pretty cheaply and it's mature but it looks quite arcady and I'm not sure if my machine will be able to handle it.
Yeah, you can easily play Ryzom with those computer specs. I think that you would be able to get along just fine playing alone. I go solo for the majority of my gaming on Ryzom and it makes the game a lot more challenging. You'd have a lot of fun, I bet.
