I started playing MMOs back in 1995, "The Realm". It was just something to keep me occupied till "Ultima Online" was released in 1997. I played for a long time, became a in game counselor on baja shard (my play shard was Napa Valley). After awhile (when EA bought Origin) the game started to decline and i looked to Ever Quest. The Game wasn't to my liking, so i drifted from many MMOs.
Asherons Call I & II
Final Fantasy XI
Ever Quest II
World of Warcraft
And many others to remember, but those are the ones i usually played as when they are first released or in closed/open beta.
