Ok folks, I apologize if this issue has been debated before, but if it has, I missed it, so I thought I would raise it myself (and if it hasn't, let the debate begin). The reason I bring it up is because when someone starts a thread like, "What's your favorite MMO of all-time?", these two ground breaking games consistently appear more often than all the others (at least that's the way it seems to me). So, I'm curious to hear from gamers, particularly those who have played both. Which game is the better of the two? If you want to break it down into different categories (graphics, community, etc.) that's fine, but what I'm really wondering is, overall, which game was the more fun to play.
From my perspective, EQ was the first and still the best MMORPG I ever played. I never played UO, but I hear similiar sentiments from those who started with that game. So I'm wondering is it's because it's the first that makes it the best, or is it because the devs of those games had something that others don't. I'd appreciate if you would qualify your response instead of simply saying one was better than the other. And if you happen to think both games sucked and something else is way better than either, feel free to say so as well. Just make sure you back it up with an argument.
