The Daily Grind: Were you playing MMOs 16 years ago?


This week, EverQuest is celebrating its 16th anniversary. That’s right: It was all the way back on March 16th, 1999, that the seminal title first came blinking into the world.

Like any birthday of a long-running MMO, it’s made me think about how much has happened between then and now. It’s also made me realize just how off my radar MMOs were in 1999. Back then, I was keen on The Matrix and just about ready to graduate college, but I had no regular internet connection in my apartment. So instead of being part of the old guard of MMO gamers, I was merely gaming on my PlayStation.

But that’s me; maybe you were different. Were you playing MMOs 16 years ago? Were you aware of them at the time? Were you even alive?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
