Letting go of a game that brought a whole new look into gaming has a very special place inside of you. Most UO vets would agree with me on this too. That's why it was not easy to let go of this game. It was always a magical world, UO was actually felt like a world. Like a place you could get lost in. It was not about always going out and killing monsters or people. Many people found their niche going mining all day, even some hired on bodyguards to protect them from any evil doers. Adventurers were commonly found. Picking up their shovel and grabbing a handful of treasure maps that they found earlier on. They would usually gather a large amount of friends to help them down the beasts that wait and lurk upon the shadows of the hidden treasure. Nothing felt better than accomplishing this procedure, many times you would find vanquish weapons and armor that you had a choice to do with. Some adventurers would take their found items to their homes that were lost in the woods somewhere, or maybe a home near britain filled with merchants. The sword would now be in view for all to see. Many people had a residence in UO, being able to do anything their mind desires. UO brought a broad view of fun to the table. Bored on a rainy day? Britannians would often just decorate their homes, sit and just admire the beauty of a 2d world. What ever you found to do in UO, will always be remembered as the time you played one of the first and best MMORPG to date. We sit here and we go through our memories and wish we could go back to that day so we can experience the game as its best. Screenshot still capture the experience we had. The huge epic battles between guilds, the newly found monsters, the first item you ever crafted with your craftsman, the very first house you built, the first time you set sail to the sea to find adventure. I loved my house that I had been living in for years, i loved all of my items I had in it and I loved my character. However, I did not love what the game has become over the decade. That day was so hard, but I was able to do it. I did not watch my house fall the last night of my subscription. But I could only imagine what it looked like. There were probably no one camping outside of my house to gather all the items that fell to the ground. Instead, they just sat. They sat in a dieing world and eventually decayed into the digital soil. That day was my coat on a rake. It was time for me to move on. I will always remember UO for what it was. My first MMO and my first love for MMOs. UO was magic in my eye and always will be. All my old friends that eventually vanished, will always be remembered.
Thanks for reading this.
