The Daily Grind: What was your first time like?

Having just become a Contributing Editor this month, I found out there are a lot of things I didn't know about MMOs, not to mention some things I didn't know about reporting for an MMO website. This experience has been exciting for me because I like to learn new things. You have to admit, there is a bit of a thrill each time you run into something new for the first time, right?

One of the first MMOs for many of the old-school gamers was Ultima Online. Thirteen years ago, Richard Garriott busted this innovation in gaming onto the scene. The idea of being online while mutually experiencing game content was an extremely invigorating prospect for many players, especially in a graphical world. Soon after, we saw hits like EverQuest, Star Wars Galaxies, Guild Wars, and, of course, World of Warcraft. With each of the MMOs that followed, there was always that sense of trying to capture that feeling of stepping into a virtual world for the first time.

What was it like the first time you stepped into an MMO? Do you remember that feeling? What was it about that experience that made you want to come back for more? And with the slew of MMOs coming out soon, do you have hopes for any of those games to capture that feeling again? Or is that even possible?
