The first real computer game I played was ‘Adventure’ on a PDP-11 in 1982. Not counting Atari, Pong or anything I hand-type into a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A. Adventure of course later became Zork. And for the record probably my favorite game is NeverWinter Nights 2. But, the first real online game (MMORPG) I played was Origin’s Ultima Online beginning during the beta in 1997. Here’s a link to a bunch of screenshots from the guild I was in with some online friends. Funny stuff. Click the screenshot below to link to a site one of the guildmembers built. Classic. 🙂
Shortly thereafter my main game was Star Wars Galaxies. Here are some screenshots.
I did play EQ and EQ II a bit, and WoW as well, but never got ‘hooked’ on those. In 2007 turbine beta’d Lord of the Rings Online, which has been my main game since that time. It has quite a mature player base, which is one of the main reasons I like it so much. Click the screenshot below to go to my main set of screenshots.
