 Yes! I have done that too! Lowbie High Elf enchanter on Greater and Lesser Faydark zone line (I wanted to go to Steamfont Mountains for plague rat tails!). Oh those were the days...

Also, I am glad that everybody since I posted Kithicor also remembers that zone at night. *Shudders*

Night should reduce the distance you can see. Your vision should be greatly reduce at night time with black hue covering everything that has no light source on it. Torches or any light source should be essential for races with normal eyes. I'm tired of all the new games that just change the color palette and expect us to consider that night. If I can at night as clear as I can see in day time then what's the big deal of day/night cycle.

 

For me EQ1 did it right, back in the day.

 Using this kind of real world logic one wonders how you get past the fact that you are fighting ogre's and elves.

EQ1 all the way. I sure hope devs from upcoming games like Rift or GW2 might take notice of this thread... It was great to have the immersion different mobs would spawn during night cycles in EQ1, alongside it making it harder to seee.. As other have mentioned there was a reason you didnt want to go into the cursed Kithicor forest at night. The undead that would prowl at night would eat you alive.

LoTRO.  Seeing the Shire or a town like Bree from a distance at night is just brilliant.

i dont know what that SWG picture is supose to represent but surely it isnt night, to compare this is what night looks in Mortal online or can.. obviously not if the moon is lit. i think it gets even darker if you venture into forest of somekind, personaly i had to stop playing when night fell while i was hunting wolfs.

 

not my picture, found it from google

only MMO that stood out for me at night was EQ1 near release.  It certaintly was a pain if you didn't have a lightsource.  Don't forget that torch!

Actully no mmo for night beats wurm online that game gets dark thats it you cant go anywhere if you got no torch,

Also when the fog is in you cant see 1 feet in front of you.

Darkfalls night time system was the best, it became pitch black and you couldnt really see 3 feet in front of you unless you had a light source or you changed your brightness settings, combine that with a free for all pvp world where the creatures in the environment kill you just as easy as players and it becomes pretty damn fun.

I think WoW has the best nights. It gets dark, but not so dark you can't see anything and the game becomes unplayable. Plus, its based on real time, not some lame "lol its been 30 minutes of day, night time now! lol.. lol 15 minutes of night, its day time now!l"

 

instead WoW goes a 24 hour cycle of day/night. A lot more realistic.

From a graphics standpoint  in my opinion holds a candle to Asheron's Call (Considering where graphics were at the time) and i've played pretty much every game out there.  I would find myself just staring up at the sky sometimes for no other reason than just to do it.  Those moons were just incredible but it also truly felt dark and like night as opposed to many games I play now.

 While I have cited EQ as my favorite as well, I do not think that I would like to see it in GW2 (I think that it would work much better with Rift though).  One thing that EQ had was a lot of different races and night vision or lack of it was one game mechanic to differentiate, between the myriad of options.  Compared to EQ, GW2 and Rift are relatively racially impoverished, that is there is not as many options available.  I think that there are enough other ways to differentiate the races without having to get into night sight.  Unless a torch could serve some other purpose it will affect the weapon builds for all classes for GW2. Some other light source such as a charm may work though, if the equipment slot already exists in the game.

I must admit that it would be great in the story mode of dungeons if the NPC held a torch in order to light the way into some dark cavern. It would help with atmosphere a lot in my opinion.

I have to agree with the other poster AOC was imo the best nightime game.

Eh... I think I would settle for games just having one area that really made you scared to enter during night time. All games could use a zone like that, one that really makes a group go "We really need to go back, it's getting late".

I have to add my name to the EQ1 list. There is just something about the thrill of blindess and true penalty of failure that just isnt found in todays MMOs.

Lineage (at least around launch). Night was dark and nasty monsters came out and hunt players, even in what was noob zones during the day.

Lineage by far best point, and the only game I ever used night vision in (elves had it).

I really miss those dark and stormy nights....

I've gotta say Asheron's Call. That game had so much beauty hidden within itself. Night times were def my favorite.. from the skies, to the towns illuminating with torches. Makes me want to play it again thinking about it.

Good point, even if one place isn't enough for my taste.

Avoid graves and areas with beast that hunts during the night after the sun has set, it do make the game more interesting.

Everquest hands down.  Still to this day, when it's night time it gets dark around you.  When it rains, you want to beg a druid to stop the rain because it does affect your vision.

Man this thread makes me miss EQ.

Yes, you'll be KOS everywhere but Neriak, but the dark elves can see in the dark!  And getting lost as hell in that city when I first started playing...

Anyway, yes, EQ1 is the supreme champion for this question.  Get a torch.  Better yet, get a Greater Lightstone or a frickin' Fiery Avenger.  I remember stumbling around Toxxulia at night--bad idea; wait for morning.  And Kith; ha, sure, if you don't know any better.

Good times.

Peace and safety.

I think that Agon has the most beautiful nights because of how realistic and immersive the world feels (Darkfall's world) but Telon (Vanguard) was cool because different mobs would come out at night and many quests could only be done during the night (or day). What is really cool about Darkfall nights is that there are no floating color floaties or floating names or anything unnatural looking that reminds the player that they are playing a game. Only mentioning the most recent games. The best night-time I ever felt was probably Daggerfall back in the DOS days lol since the ghost would come out at night and scare me. EQ and MO had very realistic feeling nights but hindered gameplay in annoying ways where I felt like just logging off . ..

NEWS FLASH! A bank was robbed the other day and a man opened fire on the customers being held hostage. One customer zig-zag sprinted until he found cover. When questioned later he explained that he was a hardcore Darkfall Online player and knew just what to do.
