One of the things that sets EVE Online apart from most other MMOs is its sense of time and place. New Eden is in fact a virtual world with its own constantly changing history. This makes for a potential experience that is totally unlike the disposable, repeatable experiences to be had in MMO themeparks.

EVE's not completely alone in that regard, though.
