In the Spring of 2005 I was coming down from my love of Halo 2 and was looking for a fix outside of the consoles I had been worshiping since I could stand on my own. I had just bought my own personal desktop and set it up in my room and had opened my mind to PC gaming. I was enthralled by the world of PC Gaming (which I still am) and needed to pick a good game. I chose World of Warcraft and spent the next five or so years building characters with friends (real life and those internet ones). It was the most positive game experience of my life to date and it's hard for me to find something similar to this date.
Since the past year or so I have gotten off World of Warcraft but I still love it. It just wasn't the same for me and I am too busy lately for it. But what I'm writing this for is to ask you guys what MMO you have fallen in love with or are still playing. I'm looking to try a new one this summer since I have more free time. I love just about all PC games and am willing to try some of the suggested ones. WoW will always be my staple for PC gaming and I'm sure I'll be dragged in every time an expansion comes out ;)
It was never a bad addiction like console gamers or people who don't understand WoW but it just made me happy to be there and there's no comparing it. It's easy to make fun of something you don't understand but I will always love MMO's (along with FPS, RPG, RTS etc.). But World of Warcraft just showed me a world that taught me how amazing gaming could be. I never did anything bad because I shouldn't have been playing WoW and did instead. Well that's my two cents, what's yours?
