    While technically 2007, it was still January 2007, I'd love to go back and play WoW TBC again for the 1st time. Otherwise, if that doesn't count, I'd just pick up Vanilla WoW to get ready for it.

    Played all the games listed - wouldn't want to play any of them again.

    The OP didn't go back far enough.

    Definitely Everquest 2 for me. I always felt this game was better than WoW.

    2006 was the year I was busy leading a raidgroup in WoW so I didn't play any other games that year.

    A: "Other" You know......one of the selections YOU provided in the poll.

    Why did put "other" if you din't want an "OTHER" answer?

    Lineage 2 was at its best with Chronicle 4: Scions Of Destiny so that would be my number 1 choice.

    Of that list,

    Everquest 2 to me is the best Western MMO ever made so that would be my number 2 choice.

    I still could play any of those other than Guild Wars 1 for the first time unless they've pulled the plug.  But if I didn't care to ten years ago even with far less competition, why would I want to today?
  • GrumpyHobbitGrumpyHobbit Member RarePosts: 1,220
    Auto Assault for me. That was a fun game tight up to the point when it suddenly got cancelled seemingly overnight. 

    I would have voted DDO but I still play it.

    2006 was the last year i played world of warcraft seriously (raiding) 
    Good game just got tired of gearing up just to need new gear next expansion!
  • lahnmirlahnmir Member EpicPosts: 2,550
    Actually, Auto Assault. Not because it is the best game on the list (in all honesty, none of the games on the list were particularly great to me) but because the servers were shut down so fast. I had hardly played the game when it got canceled and I would definitely had liked a bit more time in its world. But hey, thats NCSoft, same thing happened to me with Tabula Rasa. Screw em.

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    I remember getting into betas for Face of Mankind and Auto Assault.  Both games had potential, but they were badly designed.  They would've been better as singleplayer games.

    I should have started EVE 6 months earlier, instead I returned to DAOC for a spell after leaving WOW just before BC launched. (Might have also tried LOTRO as I recall)

    Spot on. Lineage II at that time was awesome. One of the best MMOs ever made imo

    Because Lineage II was not on the list, EQ2 which I have been subbed to since launch and this coming month will be the first month of being a non-subscriber since it hit the market. In 2006 though I was very very heavy into the game. That was the same year I joined this site because of Lineage and EQ2.

    I would have picked EQ2 but I think at that time they already changed the way you pick classes and kind of ruined it for me.

    I don't like the list or the simple 10 years.  I would either play CoV (2005) or Wow tbc (2007).

    In 2006 I was already playing The Matrix Online for a year or so. Before that was Anarchy Online.  At the time the AO community was already slowly dying. Many of my orgmates and friends had already quit in favor of other games. Finding so many fun, friendly people in the MxO beta made up my mind to change games when it went live. In the beginning it was great with all the live events and well-written storyline. The game itself wasn't the greatest but the community was amazing. Things unfortunately went downhill when Sony Online Entertainment took over and ruined it like they had already done to SWG. Even still, I stuck with it until the very end in 2009. Yes, many people say it was a bad game but I don't regret playing it instead of any of the ones on the list in this poll.
    After MxO ended I found a new home in another obscure, niche game with a wonderful community called Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine Online. I played that from 2009 until it ended a little over two years ago. Since then I've been searching for another unique, fun game that has that kind of small but dedicated community that MxO and SMT had.

    I started playing Lineage 2 in C4. It was an amazing experience back then.

    I tried all the game listed and none was good enough for me. Someone mention wow and tbc now that's when I played wow for the 1st time and still remember every day it was a new adventure. I wouldn't touch today's wow with a 10 foot pole.
