Dark Age of Camelot
Horizons (very briefly)
City of Heroes / Villains
Asheron's Call 2
Anarchy Online
Star Wars Galaxies
Saga of Ryzom
Everquest 2
World of Warcraft (I liked it; sue me)

So far I like EVE the best, in theory anyway. It makes me want to bang my head in frustration more than any other game I've played -- but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It just means I need to adapt my playstyle to get better. :)

BEfore EVE... Hmmm it all started with Diablo 2 than Ragnarok, brief Lineage 2 playing and back to Ragnarok. While I was waiting for Ragnarok 2 I stumped upon EVE and here we go. Still waiting for Ragnarok 2 though Razz

Has someone ever played Priston Tale? Crying or Very sad yep, ive come from priston and i spent much time trying to get my char better, staying lot of hours in front of my suckz monitor..lol (hahaha slavery never more eve 4twLaughing)! Actually i came to eve cuz its way to get your char strong is easier than everything ive seen until now. Its engine work well to my shook day. U can put your own skill in the beginning of the day, and magic, your skill has been trained in the end of the day. Sure is not too simple like that, but it is at least 1 billion of times better...

Mankind. It was a fantastic game in space. Because of massive cheating (you could change the client to your advantage) it came to a mass exodus from mankind players to Eve when Eve came out.

Had one host's PC get seriously screwed up, and another damaged because of the constant CTDs caused by recoded characters crashing us. I tried server vault, but it was about as popular as herpes in a nudist colony, and went back.

Do any of you remember a game called VGA Planets? It was an offline mmo before there were mmos. You played a turn, plotted course, mined, built ships, made war, colonized planets, then uploaded the turn file to a BBS for processing. The next day, you downloaded your turn to see the events play out on your screen. It was my first online game but it was a bit before Netscape came to be on the internet. It is striking how the concept is similar between Eve and that primitive game back then.

Next was EQ which I played from beta to the present.

A brief foray into WoW which I did not care for, then Vanguard for a month where I read mention of Eve in the VG forums, and here I am.

I continue to harass more of my EQ friends to make the switch so that we may give rise to a new breed of player. Stand aside Carebears.. make way for the EQbears :)

Version 3 player here. Very Happy Still have the original install files, plus Jumpgate and Asteroid add-ons. I thought about getting into Version 4, but I never got into a group that played and had to settle for a version of a One Player program I found on AOL's browser that worked with 3.

Amazing game, though. I loved how the races were adapted from old science fiction series.

Ultima Online
Everquest (not enough PVP)
Dark Age of Camelot
Shadowbane (not enough polish)
City of Heroes (Endless Grind/No pvp)
World of Warcraft
World of Warcraft/EvE
LOTRO/EvE (Banned from WoW)

EvE is more of a secondary game for me. I don't really play it much, because I'm somewhat limited at the moment. I need to keep my character down at my corp's POS for mining permatank duty, and he's training for Carrier so I basically have a good few months where I never need to log in.

Plenty of people will contest this but WoW is, IMHO, the "Best" overall MMO on the market at the moment. It's extremely accessible, easy on the PC, has loads of PVE content, has a robust PVP system, and is based in a lore that brings the player's character into the story.

Unfortunately the company running it (Blizzard) has recently taken a hard line stance toward illegal/cheating activities, and as a result is alienating and persecuting otherwise innocent and faithful subscribers. At this point you can easily get someone banned by sending them a moderate amount of in-game currency. I cannot support a company that does this to it's customers.

I also happen to believe that CCP devs should pull all of their characters off tranquility and be allowed to play only on the test server... but that's just me. (The temptation of corruption has obviously proven to be too great.)

I can't believe that I once said SWG would be the last MMO I would ever play. It was..but only for the first 6 months until the Devs nerfed the hell out of it and then changed the game completed with the NGE crap.

hey hey

Circa 19**cough** My Brother got me into his ZX Spectrum with the really mind numbing 10 .. 20 . . 30 .. GOTO 10 etc. and we spent hrs typing for small boxes to travel accross the screen

A few yrs later Daley Thompsons Decathalon was the flavor of the month along side Jet Set Willy

fast forward more years and duck hunt and mario were amusing me all afternoon and the early hand helds arrive just in time for christmas then break and spill LCD all over by new years :)

Take a break a few more years and i obsess with tetris for the Uber GameBoy

Nintendos goes "super" and F-Zero gets friends and family into arguements and the fun really starts as multiplayers get introduced to gaming in a bigger way.

I finally graduate to beer and women so no more gaming for me till something spectacular happens . .. .

PLAYSTION \0/

Tekken/Soul Calibur
and the Final Fantasy series (which also made an appearance on my gameboy many years before) some other RPG games and you guys might remember "secret of mana*" with this i learn to emerse myself into a story and complete a game rather than button bash.

I didnt really play PC games as 1) i was too young, 2) too poor 3) too drunk to figure them out.

I eventually got a PC and some various attempts at games of non description it gets dusty and unscrewed regularly. Then a mate bought round "baldurs gate : shadows amn and i was addicted forever.. BG became NWN but i couldnt get a decent PC or even afford one still :( I really wanted to get into gaming on the PC so i built a decent one of my own (i had a job like an adult finally) and everything run smoth as a babies proverbial.. I was too late for everquest and TBH RPG Online gaming wasnt anything i actually liked mainly cause the players can be, well, er.. U know. :))

a friend played EVE for about a year and kept trying to get me into it but i resisted. Another NEW PC build and i finally get something respectable to play on. I aquired some games, watched some game programs "sky one anyone ?" and then found Homeworld 2. OMG WOW And HOLY COW !!! it was exactly what i wanted in a game. Sexy graphics and superb gameplay. After noticing that EVE was pretty much a combination of Homeworld, Sim City, Alpha Centari and even the awesome colonization. I have never looked back since.

EVE is a great combination of styles. building up resources and or going out to pew pew or some combination of both. Its adult themes and dark humor suits me perfectly. its multi faceted approach to gaming is what makes it so outstanding

This year sees the PS3 attempt to retake its crown from microsoft and is tempting me away like beer and women did but without a doubt EVE is the PC winner. Even my recent aquisiton of C&C 3 didnt pull me away. I almost tried LOTRO but couldnt find a Downloadable Client or even a free trial period. Their site was crap and complicated to navigate and some links were out of date/broken. One Ring, Once chance. Sorry LOTRO u blew it with such a crappy launch.

*yes its a super nintendo game :)

Played Operation Flashpoint for a very long time. With a good squad it is still a lot of fun.

Sometime in Feb. 2004 when I was bored, I bought a gaming magazine that came with a dvd, it had EVE-online on it... EVE was my first MMO too! I have tried a few others now but somehow I don't manage to get rid of this addiction Cool

Lets see, Planetside, Neocron 1 and 2, City of Heroes/ Villains(zombie lord ftw), WOW (for about 2 weeks man it sucked),
And i will be playing Age of reckoning when it lands.
