DAoC was my very first game. I didn't know much about the internet, or gaming (hadn't played anything since Mario Bros. back on NES) when I met my husband in '02. He babbled on and on about fighting, spell casting and killing people and I had no idea what he was talking about. He let me play his little level 8 Armswoman for like 14 hours straight.. and I was hooked.
We rolled with the punches; the xp crisis, ToA, friends leaving for WoW, all of it. We suffered Sony's brutal flushing of SWG. These were the only two games I really got into. I used to come here and go down the game list one at a time trying anything and everything to get a little buzz off of any game. The only games we managed to play for more than a few weeks were Horizons (Istaria), and some other one that isn't even on the list anymore (kind of older graphics, one race kinda glided around instead of walking). Everything else seemed too EQish or WoWish, or were uncustomaizable. I despise 3/4 birds eye and mousing for everything.
Over the weekend we have revisited Vanguard, its something to do until a more PvP oriented game comes along. In total honesty, RvR is the only thing that has felt like real PvP to me. Sure, it was fun in SWG to slap the storm troopers around and stuff, but there was no fear of getting aj'd while doing it. Good vs Evil, one side vs the other side, whatever name you give it still doesn't make it "RvR".
I'm curious where the other DAoC players are now, how many quit gaming entirely or have sought refuge in the countless other games that have flooded the gamers sanctuary. We turn to LARPing as a substitute sometimes, its fun for the whole family and the kids can use their l33t rogue skills they learned in the battle grounds!
