Just asking. I've played Guild Wars an that one with the Night Elves and what not. I have also tried DDO, but just tried, not really played, and ROM. I'm not really asking for a comparison to CCP/Eve, although feel free. Just wanted to get a frame of reference.

Guild Wars, WoW, Star Fleet Command II (not really an MMO, but fun...), looking forwards to GW2 and continuing Eve.

first was WoW, started during the closed Alpha.

Played wow until War came out and played that for a while but then went back to wow for 2 months. Could not stand it.

Tried EvE and had fun.

EvE got old so tried LoL but that got stale after a while as well.

So in EvE till something better comes.

EVE
EQ

Actually bought UO and decided I just couldn't deal with the top down isometric view.

WoW was just too cartoony for me to be interested in plus I'd already invested many years into EQ at the time and didn't feel like starting fresh.

I'd pretty much given up on MMO's after I finally found my available time wasn't compatible with end game raiding anymore, until a buddy of mine mentioned he'd started playing EVE.

At this point my only regret is that I didn't see a trailer for EVE when it first came out. I had really pictured it more as a trade wars type RTS game from what I'd read, than a spaceship(ok submarine) fighting simulator. Had I known what it was really like, I'd be one of those 2003 bitter-vets.

Since there are really too many to name I will stick with the relevant mainstream ones...and will likely still forget a few...

EvE
Meridian 59
UO
AO
Asherons Call
Asherons Call 2
EQ
EQ2
Planetside
DDO
FFXI
FFXIV
Star Wars Galaxies
Star Trek Online
Vanguard
Shadowbane
LotRO
DAoC
Rift
Warhammer
Age of Conan
Aion
City of Hero's/Villians
DC Universe

I will remember more as time goes on I am sure...

I should really go through and make a list...I can't even remember them all anymore. EvE is by far the one I have played for the longest time of all of those.

I did also play Guild Wars but I will never play another NCSoft game again. A company that leaks my information and lets my Master account get stolen and then refuses to admit they have a problem does not get my money. And no I didnt buy gold and yes it was proven they had a server insecurity they refused to admit.

In roughly chronological order:
-Ragnarok Online (private server; played on and off for several years until guild collapsed into a drama singularity)
-WoW (quit after 1st month)
-EVE
-WAR (played for ~6 months before it was basically dead)
-Darkfall (played for 2 months; too similar to EVE to justify its own subscription)
-Star Trek (bought lifetime sub; got bored after 3 months)
-Champions Online (played free-mode for a couple months with a friend; better than I expected)

Agreed. DAoC and Planet-Side were the top.
I actually just came back to DAoC.

You can make a lv1, hit 16 in the new tutorial or old game areas, and go straight to the 15-19 battle ground PvP area where they have quests to level and get capped out gear (aurulite rewards and an aurulite merchant right there in the PK). You can just battle ground hop all the way up to the max level realm vs realm in the frontiers now supposedly. Obviously the gear is not artifact/crafted, but it will cap your top three stats, cap your skills, give decent resists, and all 99qua. Plenty to compete for fun, and good enough to go do the PvE stuff for better gear if you felt like being serious about one level range or another.

I'm 18 on my hunter and just got her first few kills tonight.
Crit shot a keen in Killaloe for 90% a while ago.
See how long it keeps my interest. :)

On topic: I played all in his list, plus EQ2, DDO, CoH/V... and Champions Online briefly. Global Agenda briefly if that counts. I actually own Aion and never got into it. I forget what happened but I got to maybe lv12 and left it. Is that worth going back to?

Eve
Earth and Beyond
Perpetuum
LotRO (beta tester)
DDO
Conquer
WoW
Rift (beta tester)
Lego Universe (it's my son's game - I just played it a little)

LotRo has the best community of them all by far.

Eve is my favorite and the only one I play right now. I may be one of those crybabies that leaves over the whole in-game item store thing though.

Perpetuum has potential, but I don't see it making it.

WoW is a cesspool.

Rift is better than WoW, but just not compelling.

Earth and Beyond is still going in the form of a private server. I haven't tried it, but that sure is dedication.

EVE
WoW
World of tanks
Perpetuum
Guild wars
Deicide online
Aion
Starjack
Perfect world
Jade empire
Silk road

Of those, Starjack is worth looking at, its a MMO4X game, reminds me a lot of eve when it first launched, complete with that "what the **** is going on" feel.

Perfect world is about as good as F2P fantasy games seem to get. Its not very good, but its playable.

WoT obv is excellent.

Perpetuum isn't worht playing TBH.

Most of them have a cluster**** of an interface, worse then eve. WoW is included on that list.

Asherons Call
Star Wars Galaxies
World of Warcraft (open beta)
Guild wars

and a few other assorted mmos that aren't worth mentioning as they didn't 'capture' me, so to speak. mostly open beta or free two-week accounts.

Lot of WoW players in here for such an anti-WoW game. You ****ing say the name World of Warcraft in Eve and they get all huffy and puffy.

I played Runescape when I was 11 or so. Played Eve a while after I had quit that game and tried Age of Conan for about a month. That's it for me so far :D oh and Perpetuum

When you get a serious case of eve burnout, WoW is the next logical place to go. Almost everyone playing eve is at some level a geek, and almost every geek has at least one friend who plays WoW, and when you tell said freind you've got burnout, they say "Come play wow".

It seems so attractive, until you realise what a waste of time it is.
