I don't miss the subscriptions.That's about it.
I used to play MMOs like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.
corpse runs, camping spawns, bad quests, bad graphics, 2d graphics, no story, race to the endgame, etc, etc want me to go on?
i dont miss the dated graphics and clunky mechanics...
Aside of that most of things were superior to current design. Compaing to early UO here.
XP loss. I seriously don't miss xp loss when defeated.
At one point in Lineage I had a death that cost me a couple weeks worth of xp. I just didn't feel like doing it and I stopped playing at that point.

That ties into my hatred of xp loss. I can remember getting disconnected and thinking - praying - please let my pal be able to kill all the mobs around me.
24 hour sessions playing with my friends - oh wait that's cause no new game holds me that long not cause I miss it.
Currently bored with MMO's.
" Sand Gaints "
But also people looking at me like a mad man for paying monthly to play a game.
corpse runs and XP loss. Yeah, the graphics are better now but I wasn't thinking to myself in 1999 "these graphics should be so much better". I was thinking "these corpse retrievals are stupid".
"Rubber Banding" or Lag Warping
An engaging community that you felt a part of and where you knew almost everyone and that made you want to log all the time.
I don't miss it because I know that I don't have time for that anymore with work and other responsibilities (well okay maybe i secretly miss it)

Roaming packs of slavering PK'rs from UO.
Simple. The controls and UI. SWG and then WoW refined how you move about in the world and if it's not the same as those 2 games, WoW being the more defining one, than your game sucks. Hence why I can't play old games like DaoC or Ultima or AC, the controls are a gamebreaker.

Anyone remember the player made movie about SWG where the guy filmed himself running and then replayed it 4 times in a row to emphasize the rubber banding? I laughed so hard at that I almost fell out of my chair.
EQ1: Looking to get bound in a city.
So is Wow considered an original MMO now? cause it had plenty of that at release (especially on mob corpses and getting stuck looting them)
If Wow is considered an "original" MMO then I feel alot older now
