Ok many engines specifically built for many different types of games... guessing no one knows what type of engine was used to build the simplist of text based browser mmrpg games like mafia wars, war2072.com...
For 3d modelling characters zbrush is really good, once you learn to use it its a really good program for sculpting characters, it's easy to unleash your creativity without worrying too much about the polycount because you can change the subdivisions easily. Making a skeleton with z-spheres and sculpting on top of it with a wacom is like sketching a character, but in 3d definitely worth the money.
