1. Matrix Online
The Matrix Online (officially abbreviated as MxO) was a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) initially developed by Monolith Productions and later, a few months after launch, by Sony Online Entertainment. It was billed as an official continuation of the storyline of The Matrix films, as The Wachowskis, the franchise's creators, gave their blessing to the notion of gamers "inherit[ing] the storyline". The game began closed beta-testing in June 2004 which was then opened for people who pre-ordered the game in November 2004. Warner Bros. and Sega officially released MxO on March 22, 2005 in the United States. It was released in Europe on April 15, 2005. In June 2005 it was announced that Warner Bros. sold the rights to the game to Sony Online Entertainment, and the game's development and operation was transitioned to the latter on August 15, 2005. Sony Online Entertainment shut down operation of the game on July 31, 2009.

2. Star Wars Galaxies
Star Wars Galaxies was a Star Wars themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) for Microsoft Windows, developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts

Released June 26, 2003, to much critical acclaim, it spawned three expansions through 2005. The game was completely overhauled in the last expansion, which frustrated many longtime subscribers. Star Wars Galaxies continued operation for six more years.

The servers shut down on December 15, 2011 Notwithstanding the game's closure, there are several private emulator projects in various stages of development that intend to allow users to experience Star Wars Galaxies in different incarnations of the game's existence.

3. EverQuest
EverQuest is a 3D fantasy-themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed and published by Sony Online Entertainment, which released on March 16, 1999. It was the second commercially viable MMORPG to be released, after Ultima Online, and the first commercially successful MMORPG to employ a three-dimensional game engine.

EverQuest has had a wide influence on subsequent releases within the market, and holds an important position in the history of massively multiplayer online games. The game surpassed early subscription expectations and grew for many years after its release. It has received awards, including 1999 GameSpot Game of the Year and a 2007 Technology & Engineering Emmy Award.

4. Lineage 2
Lineage II is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) for Microsoft Windows, the second game in the Lineage series. It is a prequel to Lineage, and is set 150 years before the earlier game. It has become very popular since its October 1, 2003 launch in South Korea, reporting 1,000,918 unique users during the month of March 2007. To date, the game has been played by more than 14 million users, mostly based in Asia.
On November 30, 2011 Lineage II adopted a free-to-play model in Lineage II: Goddess of Destruction, with all game content being free save for "purchasable in-game store items and packs".

5. Metin 2 Online
Metin2 is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) originally developed by Ymir Entertainment (now owned by Webzen Games) and originally released in Korea in 2004. It has since been published in many European countries and in the United States by Gameforge 4D GmbH, in Singapore by TEC Interactive. Other versions exist in Asian languages.


6. Rising Force ( RF ) Online

RF Online, originally named 'Rising Force'is a 3D MMORPG developed by CCR. The first version of the game was released in South Korea and was later followed by Chinese (Mandarin), Japanese, Indonesia, Portuguese and English translations. Like most MMORPGs it follows the typical fantasy setting complete with swords and sorcery, but it also emphasizes the three-way Race vs. Race vs. Race (RvRvR) concept and modern/futuristic technology such as mecha and nuclear weapons.
The NA/EU game service was brought down as of November 9, 2008, due to licence expiration. However, the developers, CCR have started to relaunch the game hosting it themselves for NA/EU. In August 2012, RF Online was confirmed to relaunch stateside via the publisher GamesCampus. RFO is a free-to-play game.


7. Atlantica Online

Atlantica Online is a free-to-play (F2P) 3D tactical massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by NDOORS Corporation. The game's primary setting is a fantasy-themed alternate history Earth composed of a diverse blend of historical, cultural, allegorical, and mythological elements. One of the my favorite server atlantica is atlantica online atolfan, if you search it this server gave you a lot of good starter package in early game. The game world is primarily modeled after real-world geography with accessible locations on six of the seven continents as well as the mythical floating continent of Atlantis from which the game's name is derived.

anything, that's so off topic and old to not be relevant to the board / forum gets reported as such, if you stay and talk and post links to off site boards and junk you will be made to feel welcome, but on first impressions, and a second look, it's spam

these sort of foot in the door posts, always lead to a link where someone gets spammed to death or gets offers to buy something junk, maybe wrong, as its been left and has been reported, but don't think so either, the private online quote server bit did it for me, smells of buying or selling something fishy

No, did you?

Ok to be fair I'll give them equal billing with Everquest 1st as E does come before S.

Will never forget Sebilis, even it's 11 years ago I quit EverQuest for good. From playing as a hardcore raider over becoming a grognard until working as developer was a predetermined path for me. No clue how my life turned without internet.

To me SWG wins on the crafting system alone. Never seen such a complex system for crafting, with so many stats to take into consideration. The game sure had its issues, but did deserve a better fate than what it got (damn you Joe Smedley ).

Believe Ultima was the first MMORPG, then Everquest. EQ back in those days wasn't so bad, just couldn't find a roleplaying game to kick back and relax. World of Warcraft is pretty good now, I enjoyed it. I am always into RPPvP myself.

Ultima Online was look down I think.

Notice how both games got ruined though? Everquest got ruined with POK and SWG's got ruined with the NGE. EQ became a sissy casual game as well as SWG's and yes the crafting system in SWG's has no rival. The fear factor in the original EQ is what made it great though. Haven't seen an MMO like it since where you can lose all your gear if you die and can't get back to it in a certain amount of time. Loved that about it. You had to be nice to other players in that game because some places depended on other helping you to get your corpse and equipment back.

EverQuest was the reason I got an internet connection in the first place. It was my favorite MMO and I played EQ for six years. What drove me away from EQ was that players were penalized for soloing.

My next favorite MMORPG was World of WarCraft. I have played it for over twelve years now and I still play it occasionally.

The best online game I have ever played was Ultima Online. But the PvP in it was too much for me--I got tired of getting ganked. Also, I logged in one day to find that my account had been wiped--everything I had was gone including my characters. So I said goodbye to UO and haven't played it since.

I loved the crafting in SWG. I had one of the largest businesses on Corbantis. Good times we probably will never see again MMO's anymore are grind to a max level, then grind the same stuff repeatedly for better 'gear'

What I liked about EQ was that yoo had to really think before yoo acted, getting yerself killed and respawning naked made yoo think twice before yoo too the plunge. Some of the best times I had on EQ was on corpse runs. I agree it was not designed for the solo player and not getting any xp from quests was a pain. EQ is still running and yoo can play for free, I have a free account and dip into it from time to time, it's also much better for soloing.

Cheers

That's the problem with just about all MMO's if not all the constant grind to get higher level so you can get higher gear to get higher levels to get higher gear to etc. etc. It's why I like Guild Wars as everyone gets the same gear an instead it's about skill using that gear. Though it's another that gets kinda boring because once you have that top gear there's nothing to strive for anymore but playing the same ole pvp battles and teams over n over.

The thing about EQ that made it better than most is it was an Everquest. There is so much to do in that game you will never do it all. Some epic quests are just that and take you all over the world of EQ to get the resources you need to complete the quest. It was and is a real life adventure. Plus you can solo it now all the way up to level 65 and even after if you are careful. You also don't have to sit as much as you used to before attacking something else. The old content is dead as just not many playing it anymore.
It's still the ole hack n slash for better loot though as most of them are.

When MMO's were new though EQ and SWG were the tops. Now there are so many and they are all alike trying to get your money with the free to play lure when it takes money to get the good stuff.

I too was a crafter (Master Bio Engineer/Master Tailor). Just before the game servers were taken down, I played the game for a week or so, still saw people wearing my clothes and riding my mounts. That was kinda neat tbh.
