Not truely a "MMO" but I spent 4 years building and scripting for Neverwinter Nights persistent worlds and DM'd games. Plus more than a few hours in Aceshigh.

Finally got burned out and didn't like the path that Obsidian was taking NWN2. One of my former co-developers found EvE and introduced me to it. He's left for other games now but I'm still in love Cool

My first MMO was Eve back when it first started but stopped playing it after 3 months. Then I followed this path:
Horizons
AO
SWG
EQ2
WOW
Then back to Eve in August of 2006

Horizons confused me. Anarchy Online was ok but got bored. Left SWG just before the Big Nerf. Before the nerf (and before they let everyone and their dog be a Jedi) I was having fun. EQ2 was ok but it looked funny with all the mobs just standing around. Wow is a beautiful game and with 8 characters per server it can last a long time but I got burned out. Played WOW from Jan 2005 to Aug 2006.

Eve is different in that it hurts to actually loose stuff. And I have always liked SciFi games.

I played console games since age 6 when I received my Atari 2600 for Christmas.

Owned a Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Playstation, Playstation 2, Sega Saturn, Gameboy, Gameboy Advanced, Nintendo DS.

I had a friend I was stationed with that was big into online PC gaming. I personally didn't have an interest because...

1. I was ignorant to how games on a computer could be any good
2. I didn't understand the controls
3. Didn't own a computer at the time, so I didn't care.

Over time, he got me to sit down with a game and try it. That game happened to be EQ.....yeah. It's safe to say my consoles collected dust since then. I occassionally play my PS2, but no where NEAR as much as my PC now.

PC Titles I've played before EVE...

1. BF:1942
2. BF: Vietnam
3. BF: 2142
4. Doom 3
5. Freelancer
6. Stronghold 2
7. Command & Conquer (Pick one)
8. Morrowind
9. Fable
10.EQ
11.City of Villians
12. WoW
13. Dungeon Siege 1 & 2
14. Mount & Blade

I'm sure their are more I can't think of atm. Like another posted above...I played EVE a while ago, quit, and returned recently. Very Happy

I started playing MMO's with Artifact about 7-8 years ago then discovered Mankind which was a fantastic concept of a game, like a persistant RTS in space with a similar free form nature as Eve where all the content was player driven using the tools provided. I played Mankind for a couple of years and enjoyed the open PvP, politics and player-centric nature of the game.

When Mankind started going downhill due to lack of funding, dev support, aging graphics and an enormous amount of cheating I started looking for alternatives.

I beta tested Planetside and Eve (got into one of the later beta stages), loved Planetside and hated Eve during beta. So I played Planetside through beta and for the first few months of retail before coming back to Eve two months after release to join most of my friends from Mankind who were by that time all playing Eve (corps such as HMMI, CoRM, EOG, BNC's precursors and a few others I can't remember now all have their origins in Mankind).

Along the way I also beta tested WoW then gave up on it after release, same with SWG as the PvP content of both was just nowhere near as enthralling as Eve. I've tried a few others like Anarchy Online, RF Online etc. but was singularly unimpressed by all of them.

Until another game with the same sandbox and open PvP approach as Eve comes along which tempts me I'll always stick with Eve as my number one online past time.

I just came from WoW. No matter how much they add...it gets boring being max level all the time.

I started looking for something to pass the 6 months until Age of Conan comes out so here I am.

I've subbed to AO, Shadowbane and antoher of them games that i can remember. They all mostly sucked.

As far as actually playing goes: Ultima Online. Can't remember when I started it, but it was before the whole trammelisation thing. And to think the thing mostly annoying me in that patch was that i had to carry a spellbook in my frigging hand in order to cast from then on :p

Anyways, that was mostly it. Tried some other random games here and there, like Ryzom that was pretty nice community wise, but they all lack player-driven content.

While I stopped playing other games when I first discovered Eve, as I do when I get new games, I'm now back to playing my single player games and RTSes alongside it.

Currently playing Tomb Raider, Company of Heroes, Dawn of War, UT2K4 and Eve.

I never have and never will play another MMO, as in general they don't interest me, but Eve got it more or less right so I've stuck with it.

You should try Command & Conquer 3 then. Playing NOD and rushing the enemy with tons of stealth tanks is priceless. :)

Eve is my first MMO, like so many others it seems (thank god I didnt play it while I was at Uni!).

Before that... hmmm... Freespace 2, X2, Champ Man/Football Man <insert year> & Civilisation.

I suck at FPS's so I never bothered with CS, BF, et al.

I've heard that it is just mindless eye candy. Of course, that's from the CoH crowd, and CoH is to C&C as Eve is to WoW (at least as far as they are concerned).

Anyway, I suck at RTSes, and CoH is slightly less suseptible to rushes than most, so I'll be sticking with that mostly.

97... bought a pc, that could actualy play games.Surprised

Q2 was everything i pretty much did, too far hooked in to it tbh.. something id never do again.

great bunch of people that were around in the scene at the time though, sound game, i was ranked as one of the best around.... very little immaturity in the scene at the time... something you could never say about fps's these days or indeed nearly every onliner around... pretty much why i droped out in the end.... after the winding road of tfc/tribes 2/bf. before taking an interest in online racers.. the nascar series, gpl from pappy.... next stop eve.

Now im just back to casuals... on/off BF2..... not so much on/at the computer these days.

hmm, i think i was playing the sims online at the time Laughing cant really remember.. started EvE in may of 04' then cancelled account for the summer since i was going to my cottage for the 2 months, then it took me until december to come back to the game (I think i forgot about it/didn't care) but I made a new account (was a good choice tbh since my attributes are soo much better than they would have been)

Tribes 1 -> Anarchy Online -> Dark Age of Camelot -> WoW -> EVE

Brief overlook of my primary online gaming. I kinda miss those AO times, some great people in that game.

My first MMO (kind of) was POD (no kidding)
That was a car race made by UbiSoft, if I recall

Then I played DAoC, best pvp before the buff bots and the artifacts arrived Evil or Very Mad

Then WoW (as everyone)

At OP : did you mean what do we play between EvE :)

I'm currently a fan of Medieval Total War II and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
BUT : I'm a real and total fanboy of Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy (you know, like a passionated child screaming for Christmas presents, or more... err... I'm 30 :p).

EvE is about my first MMO. I love space games, EvE is about all I love in space games (but the joystick :/). Online, I've played a little of the 4th Prophecy before, that is all.

no MMO for me before eve...
starcraft - brood war made me become a mathematically analyzing bastard and that helps here, too... a lot

but back in the days my career started with stuff like dune II, syndicate, super mario kart and maybe later x-wing

Actually its pretty fun... its very tankrush-oriented, but there is strategy in preventing your opponent from becoming strong and hitting him where it hurts. Smile

I played ffxi until they nerfed BST and took away the whole MPK aspect. It's still possible but no longer worth it.

FPS junky. Smile I always come back to CSS but I've played Call of Duty 2, Unreal Tournament 2004, and back in the day, Halo PC.

Eve's my first subscription MMO, I also play some Guild Wars with friends on occasion. GW is fun when you have some good friends to play with but the community is filled with 'tards.

Before Eve I had my mind made up that paying a monthly fee for a game was stupid and that I'd never end up doing that. For once, I was wrong.

I've played a lot of other games too such as NWN, Diablo, GRAW, etc. but Eve has a lasting charm to it.

City of Heroes/Villains.

Great game... but I had several characters at level 50, and I just got bored.

My favorite character was so fragile, that it wasn't easy to play if I was lagging.
