I hear people say that SWG was the best MMO they've played, others say Ultima, others say Asherons Call etc.
I'm wondering, are these games the best they've played because they were the first MMO's they played?
My first MMO was City of Heroes, I thought it was crap and only played a day or two. A month later I played WoW and six years on I still have an active subscription.
Now, I consider WoW my first real experience with an MMO, and so far no other MMO has even come close to meeting that experience. Is this because I experienced most of what MMO's have to offer through WoW first, thus eliminating the chance another MMO will have the same hold on me in that way?
I've got so many good memories of WoW, and have kept an almost completely active subscription for over six years, the second longest subsciption I've had was The Old Republic for two months (and one of those months was free.)
My uncles favorite MMO is Ultima Online, it was his first MMO, one of my friends favorite MMO is FFXI, it was his first MMO, my brothers favorite MMO is WoW, it was his first MMO.
So I'm wondering - Is the greatest MMO you'll ever play the first one you devout time and effort to? Or have some people found that their favourite MMO was not their first?
What was your first MMO and how many MMO's had you actually tried (putting a large sum of time and effort into) before you found it?
