Pocket Legends for iPad and iPhone is insanely good for a F2P MMO in general, but it still amazes me that it is so polished and good considering it is the first true mobile MMO, and it is still in it's infancy. This game, if nothing else, is a proof of concept that I hope opens the doors for many more like it.

Earth Eternal and The Chronicles of Spellborn are both a lot of fun! Agreed!

My top five, in no particular order:

Fantasy Earth Zero
Soul of the Ultimate Nation
Lunia
Dungeons and Dragons Online
Runes of Magic
honorable mention to Battle of the Immortals and Dungeon Fighter Online.

Great F2P non-traditional games like Alliance of Valiant Arms, GunZ, and League of Legends also deserve mention.

A coupla' points:

I had actually made a top 10 list, but wanted to force myself to point out the games that seriously take up the most time. Also, the games that I repeatedly go back to. This was very hard to make! lol

Also, Alganon was supposed to be number 5, being that I have spent more time in it lately. But, Spellborn just has that spot in my heart, I am such a fanboy for that game.

Thanks for the comments so far guys!

Why would a subscription-free commercial title like Alganon be in a list of top free-to-play games?

Well, because I consider it FTP, or at least Freemium. If I can have Free Realms in there, I can have Alganon in there. Granted, you *have* to buy the box in order to gain access, but at least it is a tiny fee.

Also, because it's good. :)

hmm...
League of Legends (remember this is top F2P) great for hardcore to casual DoTA players.

Dungeons and Dragon, lots of content and relatively cheap micro transactions, can be statistically confusing at times.

Runes of Magic, for those who need a WoW fix.

TCoS is decent, just suffers from tiny player base and dev abandonment.

I'd have to give my last spot to the Adventure Quest World. For a while it was the only thing I could waste my time with at work.

I hadn't checked out LoL...but I "hear" people say that it really isn't an MMO...is it really instanc-y, or what are the reasons people might say that?

I need to put it down on my list.

All LoL is 3v3 and 5v5 Defense of the Ancients style combat. Both teams have a base with towers in each lane, 3 lanes for 5v5 and 2 lanes for 3v3. Take down enemy base and u win. Throw in some unique champs and summoner lvling and u get a really good game for new people and experts a like.

I wasn't a huge fan of Warcraft 3's DoTa AllStars, but I have a lot of fun in LoL.

My list is a bit smaller:

Runes of Magic
Perfect World
Tales of Fantasy

It seems like I'm constantly installing and trying new free to play games, but those three are the only ones that have managed to stay on my hard drive.

I keep noticing positive feedback for Earth Eternal and Mabinogi, so I think I'll be trying those out next.

LoL isn't an MMO, it's an RTS. It's basically a stand-alone version of a Warcraft 3 mod. You start in a lobby where you can make a game or join one. You do get to select a hero to play as and level/gear up. But each game you start at level 1. The whole point is to push into the enemies base and destroy their main building.

Shin Megami Tensei Imagine isn't perfect, but the moment that game gets its stuff together and eases the leveling process, I can only see greatness in its future.
