I am looking for any recommendations for MMO's to play with my kids. I have nearly 10 year old boy/girl twins. Jason likes to play video games and even though he thinks otherwise, is not all that great on them, especially those where he needs to read instructions. Rachel is not as much into games but would really enjoy a game that she can play with daddy, even if she has to play with Jason also.
I enjoy playing Oblivion and similar games. I have not played MMO's.
I was thinking some sort of dungeon and dragon's type game where the three of us can play together and explore dungeons and the like. My son would probably want to play a fighter (basically bash and kill things) whereas my daughter may be better suited for a thief type character where she can avoid direct conflict much of the time.
Realistically, my son and I play together on games such an Unreal Tournament 3 but my daughter doesn't like that type of shoot em up (i.e. twitch) games and I know she wants to be able to play with me.
I am looking for appropriate MMO's that can be easily picked up and played for fun, rather than competitively. I do not know if there are MMO's that allow us to easily join up inside the game and just play together. I was thinking MMO's simply because they both have low end laptops and thus I was trying to move the processing off the laptops to the MMO server. I do have a variety of games such as Baldur's Gate II, Icewind Dale, etc. (I have been a member of "Good Old Games" for a while) that I could also set up on the machines if those would be better possibilities but I was trying to avoid the hassle of having to set up multi-player myself.
Thanks for any recommendations.
