Hmmm...must not have paid the same Sony Online that I did back when EQ first came out. We called it Never Quest because most of the quests were broken, meaning you would spend 60 hours questing a quest item to have it not be on the mob after killing it, or have it destroyed because you didn't have room in your inventory, or you repeat the words in [brackets] to the NPC but he just stares at you. Same guys who did a 6 month subscription but who's online subscription service never seemed to work when you wanted to cancel. It took me 3 months, server was always "down" and I didn't get my next automatic 6 month subscription back, Sony refused to pay me. Servers were constantly crashing for the first year (if not longer). You would log back in and not know where your body was a majority of the time. Getting into the game of course was a privilege though. The wait was usually 15 minutes to several hours. Luckily, usually someone was crashing out so you could get in. :)
Having said that, it was a trailblazer, and it was still EverCrack, so I don't really believe it belongs on the list. Of course I have a sour taste for any Sony online game still.
People who keep posting about the graphics based on a short, low resolution clip, really aren't providing any useful information. Also, maybe if some of the gaming companies would spend more time on gameplay, as Firesky seems to have done, games would not fail so much. Graphics are not everything (I'm dating myself saying that), but no one can judge the in-game graphics off of these low res clips. I've seen plenty of screen shots that look fairly nice. I've played plenty of intensely awesome graphical games that were boring as heck too.
