UO: My first. I had no idea how MMO's worked and played it like a true sandbox. Loved champion spawns. Loved Monday night pvp sessions (red vs blue tabards in Trinsic) with my guild (OrB on Oceania). My visit to Pax Lair on Chessy and the guided tour by an old hand there will never be forgotten. Chainsaw Knight and his roleplay - awesome storyteller. RL meets. Housing - spent way too many nights customising it.
Lineage2: Loved the castle seiges. Paladin back then was very hard to level but because it was so hard to level the focus became the chats while grouped. Lineage2 radio while grinding in a group. Taking and holding Heine castle for 3 months on Lionna. So much drama but nothing but good memories remain. Very happy I was there at the time and having fun returning now its ftp.
WoW: Always took the piss out of itself. Best raiding in any game I've experienced, most complicated raiding. Enjoyed levelling up the first toon but the motivation to level another toon was not there for me. Battlegrounds pvp generally are meh. All about the group raiding. Great memories of almost obsessive raiding that took up many more hours than it should, but easily the best raiding I've experienced.
Lotro: By far the most breadth of any MMO I've played. Am still discovering new places. The raiding is more simplistic than WoW. Best overall community I've experienced. Enjoying the pvp now but didn't so much before ROI. Most soloable game. The epic quest line is truly epic (except all the travel can be annoying). Lifetime membership was the best investment I've made in MMO's.
Darkfall: Love the 3rd person, the targetting and the PvE. Was always at a disadvantage with 200+ ping pvp and when they moved the US server to the east coast (300 ping) killed the game for me. Closest thing to UO. Still hoping some big company buys them out and hosts an Asian / West Coast USA server again. Comraderie within the guild was great, community generally not so great, but that suited the mood of the game. Would go back if I could get sub 200 ping. Was fun owning a city and being attacked often.
Mortal Online: Great ideas, not so good execution as yet. Could be anything with the right investment and more development skills. To be fair I never joined a guild and experienced guild life.
Aion, Rift, Earthrise, AoC - nothing worth writing about.
