Your first MMO tends to stick in your mind in a certain way. The first time you realize that you’re in a game with other people, or you get a sense of the sheer scope of what that means. It happened early for me, pretty soon after I started playing Final Fantasy XI, but I still sometimes have moments in my preferred games where I’m all like “wow, these games are pretty great.” It’s a nice feeling when it happens.
Of course, today’s question isn’t how often those hit you, it’s when your first did. Was it your first dungeon in World of Warcraft? Your first surprising story moment in Final Fantasy XIV? Your first PvP killing in EVE Online? Heck, maybe even just your first moments of grouping with another player in Blade & Soul. Share your stories with us today about the first moment when you were playing an MMO and found yourself just… amazed.
