The Daily Grind: What game got you into MMOs?

I am thirty years old and these pixels bring up intense emotional reactions for me.
The first MMO I ever played was Final Fantasy XI, but that wasn't what first got me into MMOs. If I hadn't played Final Fantasy VI years earlier and fallen in love with it, odds are I also wouldn't have cared much about Final Fantasy XI. As far as I'm concerned, that's what got me started down the road. For that matter, I probably wouldn't have kept playing MMOs after leaving FFXI rather disappointed if my next game hadn't been City of Heroes.

For some people, MMOs history is a one-link chain that starts and ends with seeing a specific game and thinking it looks cool. For others it can be traced back to a litany of games that led to both your present and future choice of virtual worlds. So what game got you into MMOs? Was it your first MMO, another game that led to your first MMO, or even something as silly as a card game that led to you making the right friends?
