Ah, there's the misunderstanding.  There exist more than two alternatives "bug free" and "unplayable".  Discussing that A is not applicable, we do not automatically imply that B is.

Given people's (as you noted) individual ranges of bug tolerance, their 'unplayable' thresholds must also be individual.

I can hardly wait for the day that a game that is not ProgressQuest has no bugs in it.

Playing MUDs and MMOs since 1994.

(10 games means you average, at maximum, 18 months)

Also means that at least some of the titles you're listing, even in your own eyes, are rather dubious choices for 'best'.


I stand by my list (which is on page 8).  I will add, however, that I always played more than one MMO at a time, sometimes 3 of them. EQ2 and WoW I played side by side for 7 years and there were things I like "the most" about each of them. During that 7 years I also played months (or up to a year or a little longer) of some of the other games I listed. UO was my first MMO, I never played EQ1, and I left out MANY games I played such as City of Heroes, Age of Conan, and the godawful Warhammer and Rift.  edit: and SWTOR...just no.  Personal taste yes.  We all differ along those lines.

Again....I stand by my list and consider none of it "dubious," at least in my own opinion. Those were the 10 best MMOs I've played.


edit: As the post below says, I stuck with the 10 games that gave me the most enjoyment.

That's why I only listed 6
There are others I could have filled out to ten with e.g. wow before they hired all those EQ guys and made it a raid grinder, war after they fixed the performance but before bioware took over, tsw before I hit endgame, still struggling for a number 10. But I just went with games that gave me unconditional enjoyment.

1. Asheron's Call 1 - Best quests, open world, and dungeons (prior to 3rd party software and mass macros took over)

2. Darkfall Online - Best pvp gameplay

3. DAoC - just an over all great game


Maybe not my thing but worth mentioning in no order:


UO - never played it heard good things

SWG - same as above

WoW -  is a legend in it own way and deserve mentioning

My guess would be that Everquest was somewhere around 1 million subscribers at its peak.  I can't find any exact numbers.  Wikipedia has an uncited quote putting them at 450,000 in 2003.  I'm sure it was higher than that though.  I remember them making a big deal out of having 100,000 simultaneous logins for the first time around that period, and I doubt they had nearly 1/4 of their active accounts logged in, so I would assume much higher than 450,000 subscribers at its peak.  They also had something around 80 servers or so when it peaked (don't remember exact number).

I'm sure for pre-WoW MMOs Lineage was in fact bigger than Everquest though just because of its massive Asian population.  In the United States, EQ was unquestionably the largest pre-WoW MMO, however.

As for my list, I'm not sure I've played 10 MMOs that I really enjoyed, but I'll give it a go:



Asheron's Call

Planetside (I'll list this over PS2 since the sequel is not finished)


Star Wars: The Old Republic


All other MMOs I've played did not go past the free month, so I will not list any more.

Plus, lots of EQ players made it their life's mission (at the time) to be sure that everyone knew Foreign Subs Don't Matter.  So we can safely dismiss Lineage.

Then, in 2006 (roughly), millions of WoW players made it their life's mission to ensure everyone knew that, of course, Foreign Subs Really Matter.

Argument ad numerum, of course, just just kept right on spinning its wheels.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Asheron's Call.


I don't consider anything else released adequate.


Now an AC slash Wurm, that would be a game worth playing.
