You talk about EQ2. The man talked about EQ1.

I agree EQ2 still looks decently good, even though it's still very taxing even on top notch gaming computers.

My computer is better than yours.

Your best choice is RIFT in my opinion. It has many of the old school components you are looking for, other not so old school :P , but it is by far the most polished and complete D&D sword and sorcery fantasy style mmo out there, way above from WoW or anyothers alike.

My opinion ofc :D

If you have an account or if you create one they give you an instant 85 till the 15th. They call it a heroic. Completely geared with a flying mount. You can also upgrade any of your old chars to 5, as well.

Sub to Ascheron's Call for a TRUE old school experience, if you want player loot PK play on Darktide server as it has the full original PK ruleset from back in the day (EQ1 doesn't even still have an ORIGINAL PK ruleset server....which is sad), it is challenging and hella fun, just like old games always were (even has corpse runs >:)), a true experience.

Just make sure to subscribe with a low limit credit card and not a bank card as they have been having some billing issues that have been multiple charging people, they refund, but best not to use a bank account or CC with high limit so it doesn't inconvenience in case it happened (they said they are going to fix the error), but never know, so be cautious here.

Also when you sub you get to play Asheron's Call 2 for free, which to me isn't as good, but there are people that loved it, but it didn't last 13 years like Asheron's Call has, but so many missed it they brought it back and I remember back in the day when people were crushed when it got canned.

Truly no way to get more nostalgia or old school than playing Asheron's Call.

 

Also, watch these YouTube guides to get a great headstart and tons of great needed info:

I hear such great things about UO, I never played it in its day but have tried to play it 'recently' but like most old school games, The UI is a big problem.

It must be something about the era, The UI from that era is so 'clunky' and information hidden behind cascading windows makes it hard to just 'get what you need'.

it must be that today there is much more thought put into UI design, hell they have whole books on it now, much more intellectually involved.


The other thing is, Is it the same game today that people praise?

 

Yes, one of the great things that WoW gave us was the standard UI and overall polish to the genre.

I really miss the old school feeling in todays MMO's...

 

Thx!

"worth" is subjective.

To me, none is worth subbing, old or new MMO. F2P is the way to go.

  Wow, that actually looks better then I imagined EQ1 would look today. For 15 years it's not too bad. Not good mind you but certainly playable. I tried starting AO but the graphics and UI/controls just killed it for me. Hopefully the new engine breathes some new life into it. Miraculously it's now in closed beta.

Same kinda hope EQN doesnt have maps, but unfortuently i doubt that will happen.

Played both EQ1 AND EQ2. Both have the worse map's in any game i've played.

You can always turn it off.

Personally i don't play games to be a cartographer. I did that in the first might & magic, and it is just tedious, easy and boring.

Does Vendetta Online count as old?

As an armchair economist, I ought to mention you can inhabit the fane 30 systems for a mere $1 per month.  I pay $7.67 per month (1 premium sub / 2 year plan + 1 lite sub), which is worth it to me.  And yes, I play religiously.

Two things there

- UO has almost no UI. A handful of windows here and there. Would be interesting to get your view on whether it's useful or not for a modern MMO gamer.

- The modern UIs are more familiar and easier to use because we have been using the same UI layout for ten years now.  :)

What about Darkfall? I think it's still sub based isn't it?

It's not really an old game but you could argue that most of it's features and selling points are based around hardcore/old school mmo gameplay. World pvp, if you die you lose all you gear, deep crafting that actually matters, etc.

I've never tried it as it seems a bit pvp heavy for my tastes, but other than that it looks good.

The only MMORPG i would sub to is EVE. As for other mmorpgs to get that old feeling back OP, I wouldn't sub to current UO but i would give some of the player run shards a chance. Like www.uoforever.com  Everything else is pure utter trash

Eve is and always will be worth a sub 

Lots of decent old school F2P games that used to be sub based 

 

RF Online ( one of my personal favorite old school games ) 

9Dragons ( a bit cheap but it has some fun moments ) 

Dekaron ( if you can find an active server ) 

Aion ( Not so old school but still so very fun ) 

Tera ( the combat system is different and very fun imo ) 

WOW ( worst game ever in IMO but the 9 or 10m active wowtards would disagree , maybe you'll like it who knows ... ) 

Darkfall ( not old school but you can build your game experience on other players tears ) Still requires sub.

Warhammer had its moments but its being shut down soon 

GW1 and 2 both worth a go

You could always try Project 1999 which is EQ1 classic with kunark expansion only (and eventually velious).

Darkfall Unholy wars, full loot pvp in a huge world very similar to mortal online. Lots of clan wars and open world pvp with no instanced fights.
