WTT modern MMO's for yesterdays fun MMO's
I played UO shortly after startup until a little after T2A, followed by a few years of Asheron's Call.
I'd have to say that UO is the greatest game I've ever played in my life. I can remember the adrenaline rush I got when I started the game. I'd go out, do some mining - as much as I could carry - and sure enough, some asshole had to come by and "Corp Por" my ass into oblivion. Or when, later in the game, a house was getting ready to rot and dozens of characters would be on the scene, ready to KILL for that spot. It was all so perfectly contained. Optional PvP? Bite me.
If you played the game the way I did, you understand.
What I'm wondering is, in a world full of "carebear" mmo's where are the nasty, brutal aspects that made UO such a fun, visceral, game. Who is making this crap? Let me know if you've found anything. I'm getting ready to give Tabula Rasa a try, gonna see if Garriot can pull it off twice.
