    Of course I would say SWG like many others.  I had so much invested and enjoyed the fact that I could walk outside my house on Tattooine and COMPLETELY change my characters abilities and skill set with a bit of work.  I always had something to do with the classes, and LIVING in the game.  I loved going out sampling for super stat resources and setting up my moisture vaporators and mining equipment and just carving out a nice little existence on a backwater hick planet on the outskirts of a galaxy far far away.  I even enjoyed the COUNTLESS hours i had invested in my Jedi when having said Jedi meant some serious glory.  Then again, my Bounty hunter loved killing those Jedi all the same.

    Past that I would say Tabula Rasa.  I got to play a bit and although it was rushed to market, I saw the extreme potential in the game and was willing to wait until it was added.  It had some really great ideas that were squandered due in no small part to complete and utter mis-management.  I will always wonder in the back of my mind "What if?"  Atleast I was able to give Mr. Garriott a bit of my hard earned cash so he could go to space in my place because going into orbit would totally suck for regular schmucks like me.

    I'd revive two games that never saw the light of day, but with updated graphics. Wish Online and UXO  (Ultima X Odyssey I believe it was called.)

    Tabula Rasa.  They were really on to something with it but just made all of the wrong development moves.

    "Oh, hey players!  I know we've only released like two non-repeatable instances in the past six months since launch but we decided Spies needed a seventeenth patch dedicated solely to them.  Hope ya don't mind!

    Oh, and by the way: f**k Grenadiers and new content!"

    Yeah...

    I'd like to play AC2 personally. I never got a chance to play it and I would love to.

    It would probably be Dark Age of Camelot. I'd take it directly back to how the game played during the first expansion, update the server code and graphics, and then carefully add in the things that have worked since then. 

     

    Or, alternatively, I'd revive Vanguard, have them finish all those half finished continents they just have sitting over at the Sigil offices, get Brad back on the project, and set aside a team to work on some kind of guild based PvP with naval combat and territory captures.

    Seriously though from what I've read it does sound awesome, if it would have blown up we would have a whole different set of MMO's out right now. Just a guess.

    Eh, PreCU was pretty f****d.  Don't let people fool you.  It's combat system was retarded, the buffs were out of control which completely marginalized all PvE content (people would aggro like ten rancors and then karate kick them to death (while they were AFK, obviously), the HAM system was completely f****d in PvP which shelved every single profession which didn't have a mind attack, and everyone wore exactly the same set of armor.

    It had it's cool points but people still QQ about it just because it was unfairly taken from them, not necessarily because it was all that great.

    Yeah...

    I think about this game lots of times. Great game, with a awesome Dynamic World. I loved to fight to conquer/hold bases. The AI was quite impressive, but... lacked 2  or 3 playable factions with some zones to be conquered!! That would be awesome!!

    Wish. Huge Single server single world. In game Dungeon masters having constant live events around the world. Massive crafting system. Skill based. Of course it was point n click only which turned off some people but it facilitated having that giant one server world much like eve. Sigh

    ----ITS A TRAP!!!----

    Very true, there were a lot of bad things ruining SWG. The Jedi system for once, and the buffs. It had some great features though, and if it had enough budget for someone to go back and fix it, it'd make a great game.

    Yeah.  TBH if you fixed the Health and Action buffs to be commensurate with entertainer's mind buffs, and then allow mind to be as easily healed as anything else, pretty much all of the combat woes would have been solved right there.

    At that point it would just be a matter of un-retarding gimped armor sets/weapons and some simple fixes to broken stuff (like everything that involved the Commando profession, for instance).

    And the dev's complete fetish for pushing one retarded Jedi revamp after another down our throat in a game in which they should have never been included at all really made the rest of the game suffer.

    I name Jedi as the largest contributing factor to PreCU's downfall; had all of the force-tards just STFU and let us play the damn game the devs could have focused on what really mattered rather than Jedi Revamp Patch #832570283567072562 in a row.

    Probably Earth and Beyond.  I'm a big fan of space games and I have fond memories of playing this one a long time ago and the reasons why I quit have faded enough I'd play it again if it was still around.

    SWG was a great, even with its critical flaws. Jump to Lightspeed is still one of the best expansions in any MMO to date. Just a few small things changed is all I would want haha

    While Original SWG was fun, it was more of the whole WOW STAR WARS! feelings.

    Anyways!

     

    Fury or Hellgate london!

    Fury was all about PvP. You got loot from PvP.  It was a fairly fun system, but the system requirements were INSANE at the time.  And there were huge memory leaks and just overall bad problems with the program.

    I remember them saying when I first heard of it, the Week preview would have 1 million people.  Then 500,000 they said...Then 100,000...and yeah....

    Hellgate London by the people who made Diablo I/II.  Had the right idea, but it seemed like it was trying to everything and nothing.

    Original Everquest.  To me, that is the gold standard for the genre. 

    EQ1, EQ2, SWG, SWTOR, GW, GW2 CoH, CoV, FFXI, WoW, CO, War,TSW and a slew of free trials and beta tests

    I played the game right at the best time possible.  I started playing SWG  6/14/04 and played every month till 11/19/05. The nge hit 11/15/05.  I only had to put up with the nge for 4 days and that was it.    I quote  "They also announced on 20 December 2002 that the ground-based component of Star Wars Galaxies would be called An Empire Divided and that the game's online community had grown to over 400,000 users since its inception in November 2000. At the time, this represented one of the largest ever fan communities amassed for any game prior to retail availability."  This game was huge and nothing like it had come before it.  Whats the only thing that could have killed it, a SWGkiller aka a wowkiller. What game fit the bill, of course wow did.  Nuff said, the game was over before it got to get any momentum.  

    I like many SWG players switched over to wow when it came out, although I kepy playing both.  It really was nice being able to play wow as my main game and go to SWG.  They totally benfited each other I think in this aspect for me, cause I would burn out on wow then go play SWG.  I Started playing wow 1/4/05 a few months after release.  .  I personally never felt there was anything wrong with the SWG world and I really enjoyed it every minute I played.  I just wish there was something to go back to that I enjoyed about the game when I played it back then.  Its just not that way any more and I dont even like to think about the game.

    It would have to be Shadowbane.  I remember everybody I knew leaving the Throne of Oblivion beta for the WoW beta though.  People just hated ToO that much...

    I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?
