In your mind, which are the most legendary MMOs ?
I recently made a list of MMOs I thought would be legendary and I noticed that ALL MMOs I truely felt have been extraordinary have been made between 1997 (Ultima Online) and 2007 (Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and Lord of the Rings Online).
Everything after that was kind of meh. Biowares SWTOR failed in my eyes because EA took them over, resulting in all kinds of absurd actions and a lame game. Aion was a Lineage clone, making that game even MORE simple (and it was too simple to begin with) and graphics focused. Age of Conan failed completely due to being, well, being a big pile of crap. Dungeons and Dragons Online, The Elder Scrolls Online, etc etc - all these games never really took of.
Anyway, that wouldbe my list:
- Ultima Online (1997)
- EverQuest (1999)
- Asheron's Call (1999)
- Dark Age of Camelot (2001)
- RuneScape (2001)
- Anarchy Online (2001)
- Eve Online (2003)
- Star Wars Galaxies (2003)
- World of Warcraft (2003)
- City of Heroes (2004)
- Guild Wars (2005)
- Vanguard: Saga of Heroes (2007)
- Lord of the Rings Online (2007)
Please set a sig so I can read your posting even if somebody "agreed" etc with it. Thanks.
