    Everyone else's answer SHOULD be Vanguard and Asta.
    I played Vanguard up to the end. I even specifically subscribed to it as opposed to getting their all-game pass as I wanted to essentially "vote with my wallet."

    Tabula Rasa was the one that I planned on playing, but it got shut down before I tried it.

    I prefer the original vision of Tabula Rasa. Now THAT is something that I wish we could play.

    Heck, I can't even find the original trailer anymore.

    I agree, it was supposed to be somewhat of a fantasy MMO rather than science fiction. 
    I tried looking as well, the only thing I could find is confirmation of the original design:

    I believe I have played every MMO since they went from browser based MUDs and MUSHs to 2d/3d. The addiction is real.

    Maybe played MORE of, but if I saw a game that interested me I'd play it.

    SWG (pre-cu) - AoC (pre-f2p) - PotBS (pre-boarder) - DDO - LotRO (pre-f2p) - STO (pre-f2p) - GnH (beta tester) - SWToR - Neverwinter

    I kind of want to say WildStar. I've learned communities matter for my long term enjoyment of an MMO and the guild I joined when WildStar began fizzled out and I never went to another one. If I did, I might have played more and enjoyed it. I went back when it was announced they were shutting down and it was pretty empty. That tells me that even if I did find another group, that would have fizzled out too.

    I do wish there was an option to make WildStar a single player non-MMO game.

    Lots of little crappy ones that are long gone just because they did one thing right. But only one thing and nothing else and eventually faded into obscurity or got shut down completely.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    That's really a tough question. Would there be any games that I would play now that I missed then? No. But If I could go back in time and experience those games when they were released? there would probably be a few. SWG is one of them...I think it was a genre defining moment as well as a Genre defining game. I would have loved to experience Everquest in it's heyday. But they don't pull my interest at all at this point, gaming tech has just advanced too far for me to enjoy those earlier releases in my current state.
    Now, if you were talking about games that I played in their heyday that I would love to revisit in their original form, then yeah, definitely. Star Wars the Old Republic, LotRo, a few others, I'd love classical versions of those.

    Did I miss something? I've seen UO, DAOC and EQ mentioned a few times, aren't these games still alive and not shut down..?

    Vanguard can be played still @


      This Emu server is in solid shape , its stable

      Most content is in and working up to 35

      There are a few skills not working ..

      You can even get involved with groups if you get in the discord and look for others ..

      So you can still experience Vanguard pretty well

    Not really, have been there for most of the games that i would ever care to play... Including the rather insanely over-hyped Star Wars galaxies... I was a Image Designer with a side gig as a entertainer and running a tailor alt... No.. i did not like the combat system in SWG...Thank you for asking... But i did not really enjoy that SOE dropped pretty much all support for ID´´s the second the game was released and they only took a look at ent´s once people started to ask why it was a recomendation for people to have a ent mule...

    But if i should think about a game i miss that has shut down, it would be the adorable but broken City of Heroes. Many good ideas, lot´s of poor execution. But still such a joy to play.

    This have been a good conversation

    MMO - Vanguard and S.U.N Online (Soul of the Ultimate Nation)

    Online shooter - Massive Action Game (M.A.G) on the PlayStation 3. A three faction pvp shooter with up to 255 (85v85v85) people going at it. That was a lot of fun.

    Just like my 95 year old grandmother is still alive, she just can't dance like she used to in her 20's...

    Same with those 3 games, Glory Days...

    I stumbled across Earth & Beyond the week they announced the closure and suspending of account creation.

    I feel like some of the roughest ones on this list are the games that shut down before Youtube was big and video capture was common, can't even go back and watch gameplay.

    SWG was an amazing game until the whiners on their message boards, which were seldom visited by dedicated players, ruined everything. It could have been a phenomenal game.

    I still think SOE was just using EQNext as a lure to get people to buy Landmark...i dont really think they had anything going. Maybe they thought the players could design a game for them if they gave them the tools?

    I believe it was the opposite... it only had EQ for a short time, pretty soon they've removed it from the title and was just Landmark, and it was a really nice builder game for quite some time.
    Then the EQ Next project was cancelled, and they've tried to "build" upon Landmark instead, added combat, gear and all that crap - which in return has killed the game fast.

    Yep, if anything SOE / EQ Next did for it, was the opposite of lure.
    (That's why the early title change as well, they didn't want people to "buy in" Landmark as an EQ game and then complain it's only a better looking Minecraft...)

    Vanguard and Tabula Rasa, I purchased the collectors edition of Tabula Rasa and it was shut down soon after.  I played Vanguard a bit. It was beautiful with wind and swaying trees...

    But the name of the thread indicates "shut down". And regardless of age, glory days etc, these are not shut down.

    I have always regretted not getting into Word of Warcraft, so I am so happy that WoW Classic is now around. It makes me feel drawn to that world again, like I was as a child.

    For as long as i live i will likely NEVER have the problem of not  playing a MMO i want to play.
    The reason is simple,FFXI is the only mmorpg i ever liked and even if that shut down it would likely survive through private servers and might even invigorate even more private servers.

    If a game truly disappears forever it probably deserved to disappear because it was no good.

    As i say this there are millions of people who find enjoyment from a grain of sand so there is always going to be some game somebody sheds a tear over.

    Lik there are people who will sit there hours on end clicking a casino machine and waitiing for the usual result of YOU LOSE over and over and over.I see people everyday in the corner stores buying tons of scratch n win tickets,i think it is EXCITING for them to scratch a LOSING ticket.

    To anyone that is truly serious about GOOD quality games,then NO there will not be any game we sorely miss because private servers exist.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.
