Chapter 3: Online

Were you ever exposed to MUDs?

I fiddled with Meridian 59, but not very much as school was a complete, and total bitch about time 😉

What was your first MMO experience?

I remember it like it was yesterday. The first MMO experience for me was AC2 and then the flood gates opened. I was mostly a flight sim and strategy gamer before that…so that game changed it all.

If possible, list all the MMOs you’ve played extensively.

In order?? Hahaha!!!! Very funny. This won’t be anywhere near in order, but here is the list anyway

  • AC2
  • EQ
  • EQ2
  • WoW
  • CoH
  • Eve
  • Tabula Rasa
  • Warhammer Online
  • DDO
  • Guild Wars

What is your current MMO of choice, or perhaps, what are your current MMOs of choice?

  • Eve Online
  • CoH (…but this might be a very short stay…)

Which MMO have you spent the most time playing? How long would you say that has been?

World of Warcraft…without a doubt. I would have to say I spent about 2 years playing that one.

Have you reached level cap in any MMO? If so, which ones?

Just world of Warcraft. Very close on LOTRO and EQ2 though…does that count?

Loki taps you on the shoulder one day to inform you that you have fallen victim to one of his elaborate pranks. The world youve been inhabiting of countless MMOs to choose from and play has merely been a dream. In reality only one MMO exists. After laughing at you for a bit he decides to take pity on you and allows you to choose which MMO will remain. Which one would you choose and why?

After I beat the living snot out of Loki, I then choose World of Warcraft. It is the best game out there, pound for pound.

Are there any MMOs currently in development that you are particularly interested in? Please explain.

Oh yes.

Start Trek Online looks really good and I’m interested in it for obvious reasons…but Star Wars trumps that by an order of mangnitude. Why? Because it’s Bioware.

Feel free to share an interesting or amusing anecdote related to your MMO gaming experience.

One time, Zonk made his Dwarf dance…and I’ve never been the same since.
