Over the course of the past two decades, many MMORPGs have come and gone. However, a few stick out as must plays for the genre, at least in the community. Unfortunately, not everyone has been able to play every major game to grace the annals of the MMORPG genre, especially those games that have shut down over the years. Is there an MMO you wish you played before it was shut down?

    All those I wanted to play, I played, so... none.

    I regret that Ultima Online II was cancelled though.

    Wildtstar was fun, I wish I could have had more time with it, but I struggled with the boss combat. SWG is probably the choice for me as well. I tried many games that came out Tabula Rasa, Guild Wars 2, Wildstar, Age of Conan, Rift, LotRO, EQ1, EQ2, WoW, EVE, Elder Scrolls, NeverWinter.. And more.. and I think I only played a few of those to a certain progression point, to where the community struggled. So even going back.. I less wan to try something as have others try something, so we can play together.

    No. I've been at this since Asheron's Call in 1999 and I've played all of the ones that interested me for short or long periods. If I didn't stick around in one it was because it just didn't do it for me.

    I wish I had played Wildstar a bit more. I really liked it when I tried it (loved the visuals, the classes, the combat, the over-the-top humor, the music and the general ambience) but I was coming from 3.5k hours of GW2 <3 and the bones of the two games were too similar (story-driven themepark with open world quests, dungeons and raids) so I ended up in EVE/Albion at that time. Then it shut down.

    There are periods when I want to play another themepark and none of the current ones satisfies me as much. Wildstar would.

    I just started playing Vanguard and loved it and it was announced a week later that it was closing. I didn't technically miss it. Aside from that, nothing really I think I played them all.

    Nah, not really. I'd be the one who drinks alone in a corner and shakes head for the other people's stupidity. But if the parties are lousy enough and no one even comes i'll also leave and find some other place.

    DAOC and WAR were amazing, amazing games. I wish I got to play more Marvel Heroes. But they gave people the entire kitchen sink eventually and couldn't make ends meet. They got out when profit margins hit single digits.

    ASHERON'S CALL 1 & 2
    DRAGON'S PROPHET & SAVAGE HUNT
    BLACK GOLD ONLINE
    CITY OF HEROES
    RUBIES OF EVENTIDE
    SHADOWBANE
    THE SIMS ONLINE
    REDMOON
    MYTH WAR ONLINE
    WARHAMMER ONLINE
    MINIONS OF MIRTH
    LEGEND OF ARES
    DRAGON SKY
    CORUM ONLINE
    DUNGEON RUNNERS
    PHOENIX DYNASTY ONLINE
    SHADOW OF LEGEND
    SHADOWGATE
    SUPREME DESTINY
    TABULA RASA

    JADE DYNASTY
    LEGENDS OF NORRATH
    MYTHOS

    SECRET OF THE SOLSTICE
    SCARLET BLADE
    SWORDSMAN ONLINE

    (AND A BUNCH MORE I CAN'T THINK OF NOW)...SAD REALITY IS MORE WILL BE ADDED TO THIS LIST AS TIME GOES ON.

    THE ONLY GAME THAT I HAVE NOT PLAYED THAT WAS SHUT DOWN I REGRET NOT PLAYING WERE THE WHOLE EVERQUEST/NORRATH ONLINE FRANCHISE BEFORE EVERQUEST 1 AND EVERQUEST 2 ON PC. I MAINLY MISSED THOSE BECAUSE I'M NOT SO MUCH OF A CONSOLE PLAYER. MOST OF THOSE WERE CONSOLE.

    "RUBIES OF EVENTIDE"

    This game was a gem that hardly anyone knew about or played......Everything in the game was a blast EXCEPT the combat.....It's too bad they could never quite get that working right, but the crafting system was simple and fun, and the way they did the classes was as good as any game I have played.

    As for games I didn't get to try but would have liked to:

    Asheron's Call
    Early SWG (I finally got to play in its last month)
    FFXI (played it way too late too but didnt like it at that point anyway)
    Tabula Rasa
    Kyleran
