My first venture into MMOs was, like many, WoW. I had great fun, and look back on those times with many fond memories. I suppose you could call it my first love, but i'm still waiting on my great MMO adventure. The one MMO that I really engross myself inevery aspect of.

I started my MMO journey with Ultima Online back in 1998. UO was also the MMO I played for the longest consecutively, from 1998 – 2006. If EA would open a classic shard I would still probably be playing it today.

Due to my video stores lack of knowledge they had Ultima Online there to rent when it first came out...I had no clue really and rented it as the first person and therefore could register the account  for like 3 bucks xD

At first I was overwhelmed and clueless but once I came across a guy who helped me and explained a lot it would go down in history as my fondest MMO memory.

No game gave me so many memorable moments of utter joy and frustration alike :D

To this day I could recite countless tales of adventure and woe all of which I remember as if they happened yesterday....

None of the other MMOs I've played (including pretty much all mainstream ones and a few niche games) were that memorable....when I think back to my like 4 years of wow theres hardly any times I think really fondly of except maybe 1-2 raiding experiences in vanilla...but world pve is so whatever that there are no tales to be told. (doesnt mean I didnt enjoy wow in general it just didnt have many individually memorable moments)

The only thing coming even remotely close was pre-CU SWG and Jumpgate back in the day.

Even nowadays I listen to the UO soundtrack thinking of good times...

The difference between UO players and players in almost any other MMO to date is in UO haters are almost non-existant.

I've hardly come across anyone badmouthing UO who actually played it for more than a month or two...while the same couldnt be said about any other game as far as I'm aware :)

Like fodell54 said if EA would open a classic shard I'd be back in an instant.


When thinking about UO today it feels like a home long lost.

Started with Everquest, but really didn't and couldn't understand my game needs at the time.  Started beta of Dark Age of Camelot and haven't looked back.  I spent a lot of time with DAoC and enjoyed my time there.

Started in EQ in 2000, 11 years later, I'm back in EQ playing the new progression servers.  It's been great fun, a blast from the past.  Great nostalgia & that community feeling.  I think I'll be in EQ for quite a long time....again.


I sorta rate EQ up on #1 on par with Asheron's Call and Dark Ages of Camelot.  Those 3 classics were my favorites, each with their own pro's and con's.  I loved AC1 for their FFA PvP and DAOC for RvR.  But bottom line is, I had an awesome time playing them and won't hesitate to play AC1 & DAOC if they came out with progression style servers.

My first MMO was DAoC, and though I really enjoyed it and thought it was awesome at the time it didn't end up being my favorite. For me 3rd time was a charm, with SWG being my second then moving on FFXI. Even though I've played many others over the years I have the fondest MMO memories from ffxi and even after long breaks would always return to the game. Though it wasn't flawless, it had something I can't put my finger on specifically that just made me fall in love with it time and time again but I would also fall out of love with it too. Maybe it's like that bad girlfriend that you get back together with over and over again, so maybe my true mmo love is still out there.

First mmo was UO and to me it was the best......why? was a true community driven game.....the best mmorpg even imho.

To bad all the expansions kinda killed the game.

must admit i am tempted to play xsyon tough :)

but for now rift will do.

My first MMO was FFXI and I still compare new MMO's to it...I will always love FFXI but I've reached a stage in my life where I can't donate 3+ hours to group play and while I hear that it's better, I think that it's better I keep the nastalgia I have :)

Hey all,


Well I voted yes, it was Dark Age of Camelot pre ToA-NF


While I tried to get into Ultima Online and Everquest, I never really got into these, the first mmo that I actually played for more than a month was DAoC, and what a ride it was.

It was really an unbelievable mmorpg experience, where the massive and the multiplayer truly meant something.

The guild I was in ( Defenders of Arcadia, that later merged into Ara Veritas ) was so awesome, perhaps that was part of the reason why I loved the game so much. But also our Realm ( Albion Bors, USA ) was great with alot of Realm pride, a feeling never matched by any other mmorpg after it.

The only mmorpg that can stand next to it ( for me ) is Star Wars Galaxies pre CU-NGE, it was a very social and massive multiplayer experience as well.

After DAoC and SWG were ruined by the devs, wether intentionally ( SWG ) or by accident ( DAoC ), I played alot of WoW and EVE, both gave me also good times.

I still play WoW now, and follow EVE from a distance.


But DAoC where the very best times, defending a keep together against the evil Mids or roaming Emain for war targets, running around with the guild, a death still meanth something and player bonds too.

The first MMO I really got INTO and liked. Was Tabula Rasa. I still miss it. I've played a great deal of MMO's, from the F2P's to some of the more fringe P2P ones. But TR was the first one that really got me into the genre. 

It wasn't perfect. By all means, it had its flaws, some more glaring than others. Some more game breaking than others, but the overall feel and the way it played was just more fluid than others. Balance was a big issue, but I was more of an PvE player so it never bothered me that much, and closer to the end, that problem too seemed to be ironed out. 

The First MMO I ever played was Anarchy Online. I still do to some extent, but the combat system is just so bloody nuts-and-bolts (a phrase I use on those MMO's that use auto-attack and skill-bar special attacks that let you go get a cup of coffee in the middle of  a fight) that I can't get into it. The size and scale of the world sorta makes up for it, but still. I'm hoping they come out with that engine update, fast. 

There are new ones on the sight that might fill that hole. I've played Fallen Earth and think it a good enough substitute. It too has issues but overall the package is decent enough to be engaging for more than 2 play sessions. And then there's Earthrise, a game I hope to play ASAP (not soon enough) to see if it can hold even a glimmer of the same feel to the atmosphere as TR did.

If Ya Ain't Dyin, Ya Ain't Tryin

EvE Online was the first MMO i ever heard of.   I played it for 2.5 years.  I started before Exodus (I think that was the expansion name) and could do lvl 3 missions in my caracel.  Was training for BS and racking up isk.  Then exodus killed my ability to do lvl 3 missions solo until I got a Raven ... then I was back in business.  The variety of ships and weapons blew my mind and I spent the first year and a half just training and getting all the different ships I could.

Then I joined a corp with a great charismatic leader.  We were kickin ass.  He flew a Crow that could not be hit ..... way fast,  We had many sorties and battles and lots of fun.  We joined the largest alliance in the game at the time ,,,, had our own station was cool.   Then rl took away the leader.   BoB was getting greedy and wipped our alliance out (almost) IN 3 OR 4 DAYS.  The corp kind of fell apart after that.  And we sort of joned with BoB then got looted ..... we were down.  My sister during this time had started playing LOTRO and convinced me to do a trial.  During that trial I looked up some reviews on youtube, and one said LOTRO was a WoW clone (I has never heard of wow) just not as good.  If you wanted that tkind of game why not just play the real thing.   So I started the WoW 10 day trial. 


It was love at first site.  fast paced. lots of stuff to do and kill.  No waiting hours at a gate to jump some enemy frigate.   No waiting hours for the big battle to start where after shooting my first missle the screen would freeze up and when it started moving again I'd be dead.   Cute little cartoon characters to run around on.  No days or weeks to train a skill so I could use a sword.   I had found Utopia.  I told my sister she tried the trial, cancelled LOTRO and has been playing WoW ever since.


I would have to say tho that EvE was my first love, but it was not particularily the game, but the people that I loved.   When they were gone the game became frustrating and slow ans repetative.


Then I fell in love with WoW (and still am to some extent) tho I have unsubbed a couple of times to try other games.  Still looking for the thrill of victory I guess ...


Sorry for the wall, I am juat reminising ... probably just the name of the game would have been plenty .... so

DAOC - no other/new MMO out that has its formula - so yes, still the best of its kind.
