As I’ve alluded in the past, my earliest MMO memory is about doing something that I would later learn was an enormous faux pas. I asked another player in Final Fantasy XI for some gil. Fortunately for me, he was kind enough to give it to me; also fortunately for both of us, I paid him back promptly and apologized for being rude. We weren’t the best of friends, but we were pleasant acquaintances. So that worked out well even though it ought not to have worked at all.
You would think that my earliest memory would be my first combat experience, or creating my character, or the rather impressive opening cinematic for the time… but no, it was begging in the street. So let’s take a trip down memory lane together. What’s your earliest MMO memory, good or bad? Does it make you cringe to look back on it now, or do you just sort of shrug and figure it was part of the process of learning?
