I said this could be a post in and of itself. This may look simply like a list of all the MMOs released. It isn’t, I can assure you. This is just a list of the MMOs I’ve played and there are several I regret missing out on. Many of these I still play off and on, like Anarchy Online is still a regular. I played EVE for about 9 years before finally giving up on the mess it has become. I’d still be playing Star Wars Galaxies and JumpGate if they hadn’t pulled the plug.
And I am absolutely certain that there should be more on here that I missed. I’ll update if I think of any and can be bothered.
