1. The Everlasting Sandbox MMORPG
This game is going nowhere. While many sandbox MMOs have either once been good and went to shit, EVE ONLINE is still strong since 2003. We all know the horror stories about how Ultima Online was the best sandbox MMO until... well you tell me I didn't play the game only read why it kicked ass and when I asked if it was worth playing now by vets.. I hear its not. Shadowbane being one of the best gaming experience for sandbox MMO fans and now its dead. Eve Online still there? Yes indeed.
2. Great for Casual Players
Unlike the whole controveries you hear about MMO addictions, Eve Online doesn't require a lot of your time (with the exception of the learning curve which is made better with the tutorials and the large amounts of reference websites). Real time skill learning is just what the casual player desires if they don't have all the time in the world but still wish to play a great sandbox MMO.
3. Stories, Lores, News, etc.
Eve Online is a universe and with Eve Radio, the Eve Chronicles, etc. You feel like Eve is an actual breathing Universe.
4. CCP Cares About Their Players
Developers listen and gear this game not because of the money but because of their players. Bam! Enough said.
5. Mature Community
Sure there's assholes everywhere you go but what fun is their with a game where you can go toe to toe without any restrictions (with the exception of the world of pain consequences later) and just kill each other. Still there's a game where everyoen is on the same page and no QQ about ganking and etc. Everyone knows what is up with the game therefore...the complete opposite of WOW and 11 year old gamers. This is a grown man (or woman's game).
yeah this is coming from someone that was skeptical about playing a ship game in puter space the whole time but remember there's plenty of evidence as to why this game kicks ass and how it has the potential to become more everytime. CCP are kings and other developers NEED to take notes!
