So I've a question for you folks here at RPHQ, new and old RP timers alike. Of all the various MMO's out there, in your experience which of them was your absolute favorite to RP in and why? Was it the game lore, the people you did it with, the game itself was just more fun to play and thus, the experience was better, or was it even just rose colored first MMO glasses?
For me, given it was also the longest i played an MMO, it was Everquest 2. Especially in it's first five years. It was far from my first MMO (EQ1 was first, and others after it as well, but I wasn't RPing then) I loved the lore of Norrath and the people and stories they came up with were always so diverse and the game was new and the RP community was thriving and diverse. We had everything from epic battles and attacks on major cities with literally 100-200 people RPing out fighting all over the server to the personal and private RP and character building. It was a great time for RP.
SWG was a close second, I do love Star Wars, but it's memory got tainted by them taking away my class with the NGE.
