    I started with MUDs, played Everquest, Asheron's Call, Ultima Online, did strategy guides for Star Wars: Galaxies and City of Heroes, and have played World of Warcraft from time to time.

    They're a unique experience in gaming. In every other genre, the world is designed just for you. In MMOs, the world is designed for the world, and not everything you see will be intended for you. Some of it will be for other classes, other factions, or other levels. It really adds a feeling of dynamism to the game.

    I used to play FlyFF and Dofus (both free MMORPGs - Dofus is more tactic-based, while FlyFF has a similar gameplay to something like Legend of Zelda), but I no longer have the space on my computer for FlyFF. D: I really liked that game, but I took it off my computer when my internet became too unreliable to play. I liked the fact that those games are always evolving - there's always a new quest, new items, new classes being introduced, there's no such thing as the end of the game.

    I'm pretty much uninterested in them; much of what I've seen/heard of gameplay in most of them reduces them to work, and I've lost too many friends into the damn things (particularly WoW).

    I toy with subscribing to EVE Online now and then, but haven't gotten around to it. That's about it.

    I used to play SecondLife night and day. I don't know if that counts as MMOG or not, though. I played for about a year, but it was so consuming and I was spending quite a bit of money so I eventually gave it up. There was so much drama there too. I have enough drama in my real life. I found that I was actually stressed out in real life because of imaginary stuff that was happening in SecondLife. It was ridiculous! I do miss playing Tringo, though!

    I used to play many...

    My most recent one was world of warcraft but I Recently stopped, partly due to boredom, partly due to my main PC burning up.

    I miss Star Wars Galaxies though, it was so open ended and had ridiculous potential, it may still be fun right now, I hope if I ever go back my house is still standing I have items in my house that can't be gotten in the game anymore, I'd love to play it on a private server at least, what can I say 1) I liked the old game 2) I don't want to pay if I don't have to, though I'm not sure if there are even private servers.... and the gameplay maybe wasn't so god awful, I had some fun with it

    These days this is becoming a questionable statement.

    No, because I know the people that make them and am more interested in the theory behind them anyways. I love MMO's... I just don't play them. This tends to confuse people.

    My boyfriend and I play them. I used to play dark age of camelot, I loved that game but not enough people are playing these days. Got tired of world of warcraft. I've been playing lord of the rings online lately, it's a neat game but I'm not sure if I'll play it. I'm kind of in a mmo dilemma, not sure what I want to play!
