Ah, MMOs. The crack cocaine of the gaming world. I was there gazing in wonder from early on before WOW really brought it to the mainstream. Started with stone knives and bearskins with MUDs in all their text-only glory (yeah maps were handy). Saw Neverwinter Nights in ’91 and I was curious. Wasn’t until I was constantly getting kill-stolen in Ultima Online that I said to myself  “Glenn…you’ve arrived”.

Everquest (or “Evercrack” if you prefer) stole many a day from me and led to some real life friends and adventure. Had to quit cold turkey after that, but I’m glad to see the tradition still lives on with all the superhero and Star Wars MMOs.
