  • Yes, I've been looking for a game to give me that feeling for a decade. I started on the original UO, the original EQ, the original AC and I have never found games that give me the 'awe inspiring' feeling since.

  • FiranMUX is a great fun game in this same realm of games.
  • I've spent years looking for this since the original UO (which pretty much meets your description to a T) circa ~97 and haven't been able to find it since. If you find it PLEASE tell the rest of us. I tried Wurm and Xyson - I personally didn't fin…
  • First: thank you for this thread! I agree with almost all of the points made on some level. It has been pleasant to read from the first page on because of the well thought out ideas and lack of trolls. So thank you to everyone! I'd hardly say full…
  • What I don't understand is why players accept questing and levels as the norm in MMO's. It completely destroyed the genre for me. I have personally given up on them all: I stick around here because I am curious to see how archeage plays out and in t…

  • Maybe I just don't want games that are afraid to hurt a 2 year olds feelings with no threat of loss? There is no reward without risk and I find the games boring not because of the content but because there is no feeling of accomplishment to me witho…
  • The original UO made me feel like I was in a virtual world. I've played (almost) every mmo since looking for that same effect. Ironically, I went even further back in time to find a decent mmo: FiranMUX. I just can't find a modern mmo that doesn't b…
  • I personally just don't feel the excitement and reward I used to get from games (mmo's in particular)... I still play FiranMUX speaking of MUDs. The mmo's out not just feel hollow to me - like why am I even playing this? Lots of people tend to just…
  • Isn't Fallen Earth supposed to be a FPS MMO? Sorry for short post - from iPhone...
  • I feel the exact same way as the OP. I tried Darkfall and Mortal Online and they just felt completely empty to me. It is nice to see someone trying to be like old-school UO but they both just missed the mark in different ways; which, unfortunately m…
