Snow Day!

Here is why MMOs rock, because when there is snow, you can play. Right now most of our beloved east coast is under about a foot of snow. These are the times that you see MMOs become more and more active. Players log into a game they have not checked out in months because there is not much else to do.
Exploring these older games can offer some great finds that you might have missed.
 
Playing games like Ultima again or even checking out EverQuest after years of not playing. I get nostalgic with old games and MMOs. It makes it fun to go back and see how far gaming has come.
 
Even better, if you could get your D&D group together on a day like today you can have an all day adventure. Few people can go anywhere just make sure someone brings the Doritos. Back, in 1995 I can remember driving home for a game of D&D from work in a blizzard. I was reading GamePro and Weaponlord was on the cover. If you have not played Weaponlord it is an awesome old game.
 
It is these times I remember most in the snow. Now, my old crew of players can log in and meet up on our computers to check out other worlds while ours resembles Northrend.
 
So take a snow day and check out some games, you may be surprised what you find.

The other day someone was saying in General chat in game, "I love it when its Xmas in MMO's and the have it snowing all the time.

To which someone replied "Come to Canada then." I did smile, being snowed in is lovely when its for one week of the year. But not when it is for one or two months. :)
