We all had to start somewhere, whether text-based MUD or blockbuster AAA MMORPG. This week, we'd like to know:

runescape. if that doesn't count, WoW. I was never big with online.

Unfortunately, we obviously have some similarities.

Starcraft really was my first online game playing on a dial-up woot.

First online game ever.. was Aliens Versus Predator 2
First online MUD... was I think called Dungeon or something similar, was a long time ago
First MMORPG... Ultima Online briefly..wasnt really doable via dial up back then, later I tried MMORPG's again with RF online (a pretty but souless game)

Have played many many others since though :)

Online: Diablo + Quake

MMO: Anarchy Online + Ryzom

For me, it was Silent Death Online. That game was horribly addictive.

Diablo, horrible computer and shitty connection then but still loved it. only bad thing was the amount of item duping and faked items.

Discworld MUD
Amazing amount of gameplay you could fit in on the 15 min breaks between classes :)

Anarchy online, just before i found Diablo2 =[] then AC2 untill it got shut down

The original Diablo. Man that was a great game...except dying and having your stuff spew all over the place in the middle of Hellspawn on level 4 of hell. O.o

But what can beat the heady feeling of hearing your teammates screaming "I"M IN HERE, YOU MORON! KNOCK OFF THE CHAIN LIGHTNING AND FIREBALL!" and then hearing the death scream. :)

Ultima Online, best game of all-time. It was towards the end of its life in the mainstream market...I think I was in my late teens. Many nights were spent, yes...getting my ore stolen like dualhammers...but DANG was it fun to kick the crap out of them when I became strong enough! Can't wait for Darkfall Online...hopefully bring back that hardcore PVP and player freedom that todays MMOs desperately need.

Erm... Jedi Knight?

MMO-wise, then Dark Age of Camelot. I actually got into MUDs after MMOs, amusingly enough.

Ultima Online, pre The 2nd Age. I think I was 7 at the time, and got hooked in Elementary School by my networking teacher. Ahh, rampant griefing. I loved getting my hard-won ore stolen by some 20 something who needed to find meaning in their life through the misfortunes of others.

We need more MMOs like that.

Earth & Beyond.

I applied to beta. Got in on that last month or so. I was instantly addicted. Jenquai Explorer. Loved it. So sad when it was canceled.
