Times were different back then.  It was called Pong and all your neighbors came over and you all played together or took turns.  These were the days of the live and in one house MMO.

First MMO online was Utlima online. Had played all the ultima sp games before that 1 to 8 or 9. I loved these sp games and i think its was Ultima 5 i played for a very long time and still remember how hard it was since it was no information on internet and no walkthrou. You had to toalk to every NPC and read what they said and then figure out what they meant by that.Fighting was very strategic and turnbased.

I they made Ultima 5 again with a little better graphic i would play it again.

Damn I can't believe only one other person has mentioned The Realm....that was my first mmo, and it was AMAZING. I played back in 2x...then 3x. I remember being like 14, and having no credit card and playing as a Demo for something like 3 hours at a time....hiding all the stuff I collected behind a tree, and restarting lol.

I'm playing it again and it is still so addicting. Makes me miss the days there was no purpose. You just played to level, kill shit, get cool loot, and talk with the community.

MMORPGs are no longer about the mass multi-user

Otherwise, it's MUDs, way earlier.

Lord British simply made a dream come through by combining his famous RPG series that I loved with the MUD genre that I loved too, and turned it into Ultima Online.

Was about to call for MUDs as well... My first one was Talisman online back in 1991, a graphical MUD supporting up to 48 concurrent users on a BBS (if the BBS had 48 lines *LOL*). I also played a lot of TradeWars 2001 back in the day. Though not a real MUD, it had some nice multi-user functions build in.

And the real MMORPG? That was Lineage II back in 2005...

Kind of hard to call something an MMO when the O hadn't been invented yet.


My first mmo was earth and beyond. I found the beta sign up while surfing at work and once accepted I was hooked.

Horizons. It was.. not particularly good. But it made me realize how much I would love to play an MMORPG that was.

nah ... labels are not always literal.

Much of gameplay in MMOs are not massive (instanced dungones, raids, and pvp). So if MMOs do not have to be "massive", may be they don't even need to be "online".

It was EQ. Then I found out EQ2 didn't have something called "PVP?" I moved to wow. This was either TBC or close to it's launch I can't remember. 


Stuck with WoW for the longest because the PVP matches AB & WSG were the most fun gameplay experiences I ever had. Sure, I got angry when the pvp gear got introduced and every rogue was able to stun lock and every worthless paladin was able to bubble and heal...oh those were the days. 


We had teamspeak 1 setup for our server so the ally and horde could talk back and forth and probably half the time was "shammy vs pally" talks lol.


I still say to this day, EOTS & Arathi Basin are the best PVP experiences I've had so far in any game.


((In addition to my WoW experience I dual subbed to other games such as DCUO & DAOC. Currently playing Defiance & WoW.))


Soon as these people on who (characteristically) don't have cash catch on to the $10 Defiance deals I'm sure we'll get droves of people comin in. Right now with the limited people in the game they all seem to go to AF's lol. You'll have ~60 people at a single AF, lucky to get a couple shots in.

Ultima online was my first MMORPG i still occasionaly login to *Ultima online forever* (free version) for nostalgia ofc

yes i am from an era where the players werent divided to camps of PvE and PvP they were all the same if you were weak in combat just had to make friends and have them do the protecting

after UO got too old I turned into game hopper wishing that i find a game that i can stay with .... but boy was i wrong, gone through most of the mmorpgs on the market and have atleast 2 months of gameplay on each

Maple story was probably the game that i played the longest out of all of them since it had something that kept me playing even though to this day i dont know what it was xD (maybe the fact that it reminded me of super mario)

Mmorpgs i want to try :




currently on hiatus from games

testing the theory that maybe im just burned out from mmorpgs and need to recharge

Exactly this for me. In fact, I thought I wrote this and someone hacked my avatar.

Dark Sun Online.  A game so old and so small that while looking for a pic of it I came across one of my mortal enemies in it.


That guy would show up out of nowhere while you were trying to fight some mobs and gank you without the slightest bit of hesitation.  He wore all purple, and to this day I hate the fact that games use purple for their best gear for that reason.  Best time in the world though, and I wouldn't trade what happened there for all the games that came after.

Dark Sun Online game play pic.

People like to say that this was not an MMORPG.  But in a world where there were absolutely no games that allowed you to be online, with a moving graphical representation of yourself, simultaneously with another player under any circumstance, it certainly was.

I think it was EQ1 but I don't really keep track of games I play and prefer for focus on the games I am playing. But I do have an EQ1 box and vaguely remember playing it. Before that I am not sure I really did anything online as I got all my roleplaying through my tabletop group. It was only when the group stopped playing did I really get into online play.

EVERCRACK. No one calls it that anymore of course, but I come from the distant past: 1999. Everquest captured my imagination and real life time in a way that no other game had before. To this day, some of my fondest gaming memories originate with this game. Unfortunately it has also aged like shit.

Asheron's Call 1.

Didn't care for it much (or the other ~9 early MMORPGs I tried) since compared to regular games early MMORPGs were light on gameplay and heavy on timesink, which results in a really diluted bland experience.  Then WOW came along with reasonably good gameplay, but then sadly nobody else ever iterated on their core gameplay enough to improve upon WOW.  A few games came close (City of Heroes was a ton of fun) but after so many releases I'm still basically waiting on another MMORPG worth investing in long-term.

Not everything was terrible in those early games.  I still think AC1's progression system was awesome, and the pyramid-scheme vassal system was fairly interesting (but I think if I got too involved in it, I would've rapidly tired of it.)  But the abilities gained from the progression system were pretty dull, and the combat resulting from those abilities duller, so it ended up not being enough to salvage the game.

Runescape would have been FF XI if me or my mom had know anything about computer specs back then. I would always pick up the FF XI box walking through the gaming department at Walmart ='( poor mini me.

Axehilt, im thankful at least someone else played AC here. My favorite part of that game was exploration. One time in the northern mountain range i found dr. Who's freaking telephone booth. As far as i could tell no one else had seen it since i was accused of photoshopping at the time.

Star Wars Galaxies, on launch day.

Still have my CE box, lol, and the enamelled pin with the Reb/Imp symbols.


It was a helluva introduction to online gaming. It was a virtual world just as I had imagined all MMORPG's would be. Little did I know that it would be the last virtual world for at least a decade...
