To say that I’ve played a lot of MMOs in my day would be an understatement. The number is so significant at this point that when I sought to list them all last night in a conversation with a fellow streamer, I kept forgetting some of them. So, for the sake of my own failing memory and to make a point, here is the list:
- City of Heroes/City of Villains (CoX) [now closed]
- Champions Online (CO)
- DC Universe Online (DCUO)
- Lineage 2
- Everquest 2 (EQ2)
- Age of Conan (AoC)
- Final Fantasy XI
- Final Fantasy XIV: Realm Reborn
- Prius Online: Anima Redux [now closed]
- Skyforge (currently closed beta)
- Ragnarok Online (iRO)
- World of Warcraft (WoW)
- Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR)
To that end, I believe it’s time to put my years of MMO experience to use by producing formal reviews. So, beginning in a few weeks, when I resume streaming on Monday nights, I will focus on one MMO for each of four weeks, spending no less than 12 hours experiencing (or re-experiencing) the game so that I can grade it based on the various categories I have previously mentioned in this blog. Once done, I will edit the review down into something readily digestable and post it to my Youtube channel.
Now here’s where you come in. What MMO(s) do you recommend that I start with? Please post your suggestions in the comments section below! And don’t forget to watch me on http://www.twitch.tv/steelphoenixtv !
