    I'm looking to start playing a good free MMO (RPG/FPS/whatever). I played the original EQ for about 2 years right around when luclin came out, I've played SWG, DAoC, AO, EVE Online, and several other MMOs. However, I stopped playing for about a year and now I want to get back into one. It seems that there are a lot of free MMOs out now, but I'm not really sure which ones are good or not.

    What I want:
    1. Play Time: Can play about 1-2 hours during the week and 2-4 on the weekends and still feel like I'm getting somewhere
    2. Some Grinding is ok, but I don't want that to be the ONLY thing about the game
    3. Solid servers: Occasional lag, maintanence (once a week), and outages are ok, but they shouldn't be a once a week type of thing
    4. Solid community: A decent community that is willing to help you ingame, lots of guilds, etc.
    5. Some Larger event: Raid, large-scale PVP, etc.
    6. Any theme: fantasy, sci-fi, realistic, whatever is fine with me
    7. A good beginner tutorial that will atleast get me through the first few steps of the game

    Again, it doesn't need to be a RPG, any gametype is fine with me as long as it's not RTS/turn-based strategy (if they even have anything like that in the MMO world yet).

    Americas Army is free. And great graphics for a free game, and its definitely enjoyable. www.americasarmy.com

    And it meets most (maybe all) of your criteria you ask for.
