    I LIVE AGAIN!! (dun dun dun dun dun DUN dun dun dunnnnn)

    Sort of. Came to check and see if there's anything new and neat on the horizon, got nostalgic about rumbling in the Off-Topic section and stumbled upon this thread.

    It's been many years since I visited the site and even longer since I logged on. Somehow I managed to remember my old password.

    I joined close to 15 years ago. I was a staff member for at least two and covered E3 for MMORPG.com in 2005. I was pleased to see that my old articles are still up, including the original MMORPG.com reviews of WoW and EQ2 (!!)

    I fell out of MMOs around 07 and have really been disappointed in the genre. WoW, as fun and successful as it was, turned the genre sour for me. I've dabbled with Tera, Neverwinter, and Project1999, but I just can't seem to rekindle the love I one had for fantasy MMOs. 

    I read about Pantheon and decided to come here for info, and it really was a homecoming in some ways. The site is far different, but it still has the same old look and feel. I remember Kunou, Clever_Glove, @Malkavian, Finwe, Kiamde, Neschria, JustinJoseph, Craig "Admin" McGregor (of course) and several others from my time here. And, yes, I remember Murt.

    And for you old schoolers like me who know who this is, I found this in my gmail from 2005. It's a letter from the late Gary Gygax, the creator of the original Dungeons and Dragons, discussing Lejendary Adventures Online which, sadly, never came to pass:

    Gary Gygax <ggygax@XXXXX.com>

    Greetings Reed!

    Welcome, and my thanks for the good words regardng the LAO game. There will be a couple of meetings with potential financial backersnext month, but as with all such deals, getting one that doesn't want the whole store is iffy;)

    Anyway, I'll see that Dan gets your email message.

    Ciao,
    Gary

    i used to go as Enigma in mmorpg.com but I deleted that account. I deleted it because of a stalker I had back in 2011 but now, in hindsight, I wished I hadn't deleted that account.

     

    I've grown much since then. Back then I was an ass and a little self pompous. But then again, that was in hindsight too!







    Your original Enigma is still here http://forums.mmorpg.com/profile/Enigma Don't know about En1gma.

    Hey, found an old me too http://forums.mmorpg.com/profile/Zorvan lol

    I can't believe I joined this site in 2003. I still remember looking at 240p videos of DAoC on Gamespot thinking the graphics were unbelievable. And someone gave me a closed beta invite to EQ2 which was one of the greatest gifts ever, so thanks to whoever that was!

    Of all the MMOs I tried I have the fondest memories playing FFXI. I'm not even sure it was the game itself but the community was fantastic. And I know it's cool to hate on WoW but I was really impressed by the game for the first few years. I got a closed beta to that too and those invites were rare! My cousin stayed the entire week and we took shifts building our character. That's basically when I stopped playing MMOs because nothing interested me anymore. I came back to see how Everquest Next is progressing only to find out it's been cancelled!

    Anyway, how've you all been? I remember Kiamde, Justin, Dekron, Murtbijani, Koltrane, Flem, Rikimaru_X and I'm sure a bunch more if I saw their screen names.

    Edit: By the way this is a bit of trivia for the MMO veterans. There was a major cable show that aired a segment on the original Everquest when it was popular. It might have been 20/20 or 60 minutes. I just vaguely remember them interviewing players and discussing addiction to MMOs. Am I crazy or did that exist? Maybe I just imagined it, lol.

    I found a Canadian segment but I'm sure an American show did one as well.

    Just Elder Scrolls Online at the moment on teh xbox when i have nothing else to play.  Think the novelty of MMO's wore off a few years ago for me.

    Yes I've been having this "did MMO's change or did I?" thought process lately. I imagine both, but to a greater degree it's me that changed. It's tough to predict the future, but I suspect when VR technology matures there will be another wave of popularity in this genre. There is no other game genre that would benefit from the added immersion than MMORPG's.
