I do appreciate your great enthusiasm for this and EQ though. I really do. You've made me smile tonight.
In other news, Ryzom is free on the Mac App store` and harkens back to the EQ era. It is completely free to play the first half of 250 levels. Beyond that I think they are operating on a donations model to keep the game going. I had friends in my first raiding guild who departed EQ (raiding guild drama precipitated that) and they spoke very highly of the game at the time. So for those liking this kind of game, Ryzom is probably worth a look. The price is certainly right with a free Mac client download from the Mac App Store and no cost at all for full game access for fully 50% of it's content basically. I've heard the community is nice too which is often true with small communities in games like this. So adding Ryzom would be cool.
Here's the web link for Ryzom: http://ryzom.com
Another recent one that is missing is Eldevin which is available on MGS and is a ftp MMO. This is available as a free download too last I knew. I got it that way on MGS a while ago but have not had time to check it out yet.

Glad to see you'd added the excellent Turbine MMOs, LoTRO and DDO. I spent a lot of time in them and their implementation of f2p is actually not bad at all surprisingly. You can buy a few minimal things at little expense such as some storage and then buy level ranges of content to play which all your alts can use and sort of just pay as you go, permanently owning what you buy into. The cost of it is pretty reasonable certainly for casual players like myself in those two. For serious players, it's better to just subscribe to them and worth it too. They are both excellent games with decent Mac ports.
Another one I have heard is pretty good is Drakensang Online and they released a Mac client a couple years ago now roughly which can be found here in this Drakensang Online forums post about it:
This is also in the f2p category. Really, I think pretty much everything but WoW is these days although most of them offer subscriptions for the full or mostly full experience.
I don't recall seeing Guild Wars 2 mentioned but that is just as well given its cider client. That game should be played in Windows or bust unfortunately.
Anyway, I'd count the above as worthy additions to the list when time permits.
