    Most time would have to go to EQ1, raided heavily there. When we weren't raiding I played DAoC, Asheron's Calll, L2, and dabbled in others.

    I didn't play mmorpgs back then as I was busy with grad school and raising a small child. I had no idea mmorpgs even existed.  My first gaming experience was on the Atari 2600 when I was in high school.

    Then I went to college and discovered chicks and partying. So I didn't have time for gaming. Then I got married and had a family. Still no time for gaming. Then I stayed at my sister's house and my nephews turned me on the the N64 with Goldeneye (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktwVEYqnpcc) and I was shocked and awed at how much games had evolved since Berzerk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntZj5UYGfzs). I went from N64 to Xbox to Xbox360 before I got into computer gaming again.  

     

    In 2007, I was telling a co-worker about Oblivion and he asked me if I'd ever played WoW. I said, "What's that?"

     

    I wound up playing WoW for two years and probably from there my history of mmorpgs is pretty similar to most others here.

     

    So I totally missed out on UO, DAOC, and EQ.

    DAOC and AO was my 2 games I'd swap back and forth if I felt burnout.

    My first MMO was Ragnarok Online back in 2004. I still have my very first RO screenshot on an old CD. :D I used to play that game for years then I got into 3D MMOs in 2006 (Lineage 2). Mmm, I feel so nostalgic now.

    I played everquest, neverwinter nights, and morrowind. Everquest was my first MMO and I was clueless how to play it. I had a friend get me into the game with promises of leveling me quicker. Alas that didn't happen and I quit after a year. I shouldn't have picked a mage in hindsight. I should have went druid or cleric, but I didn't know these things. Neverwinter Nights was my thing for 2 years. I ran servers and created endless mods. Morrowind also filled a great amount of time. The mods, the adventure, the endless exploration - it was great.

    Yeah, a Poll is a BAD idea to answer this question. Why? Because 2000 - 2005 is a 5 year period, and during that time I played a lot of stuff.

    2000 - Ultima Online / EverQuest  / Various Beta Tests
    2001 - Anarchy Online / Dark Age of Camelot / Various Beta Tests
    2002 - Dark Age of Camelot / Earth and Beyond / Various Beta Tests
    2003 - PlanetSide / Dark Age of Camelot / Final Fantasy XI / Various Beta Tests
    2004 - Final Fantasy XI / City of Heroes / Monster Hunter / World of Warcraft / Guild Wars Events / Various Beta Tests
    2005 - Final Fantasy XI / Monster Hunter / Guild Wars / PlanetSide / Various Beta Tests

    UO/E&B/SWG.

    WoW starting 2004.

    No offense meant, but your list of "2000-2005" MMOs is poor and this poll is pretty bad.

    First, you forget major games like AO, SWG and AC1, and second, you add games like EQ2 which were barely released in 2005 (EQ2 was released in November 2004) so very little people will actually have played it "the most" in the period you are talking about here.

    "Other" here, Asheron's Call is the game I played most during that period.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    you sorta missed Lineage 1 and 2 which were far more popular than the other games listed... they were the only games to hit over 1m subs pre WoW, source www.mmodata.net

    yet you list these games...

    EQ and D2  "ya ya i know D2 really wasnt a mmo"
  • AcidonAcidon Member UncommonPosts: 795
    EverQuest, with a lot of DAoC in the mix.  WoW closed beta.  Then back to EQ.

    A Tale in the Desert is the only real MMORPG that I played much before Guild Wars launched.  But I also played Europa Universalis II and Infantry a lot.
  • NateEssexNateEssex Member UncommonPosts: 58
    Everquest, big time. Also, DAoC and Shadowbane.

    Current: GW2 (almost)
    Played: EQ, DAoC,EQOA,Shadowbane,WoW, WAR, SWTOR, TSW

    Lineage was huge but only in the East - it never had a strong presence in the West

    (as seen by Ncsoft financials that broke down subs by region)

  • GrootGroot Member UncommonPosts: 87
    UO (until summer 00), DAoC (95% of my time until WoW dropped in 04), Neocron 1 & 2, EQ2, & WoW.

    L2 was pretty damned big, but that doesnt change the pure numbers of players and being left out is pretty bad, but then again his other choices are just as bad... like skipping SWG. Even you listed far mor games played than are on the list and many deserved to be there.

    I played a hell of a lot of EQ1, AC1 and DAoC during those years. Most of that time I was subbed to all 3.

    But if I measured on an hourly basis, DAoC would edge out over the rest for the most time spent in each game.

    Everquest has almost 2 years on DAoC though, as far as launch dates go.... DAoC did not launch until October of 2001 if I remember correctly. I remember being in beta during 9/11

    Still, once I tasted RvR it was all over... i was sucked in for 8+ hours per night. Bless my wife for her patience through that time! She's a saint :)
