We often note birthdays and anniversaries for online games here on Massively OP, but today it’s not about the game — it’s about you! Today we want to know your MMO birthday, the day (or month or year) that you first stepped into an online world.
This is an easy one for me, because it was a day that went down in infamy: July 27th, 2001. That was the launch date for Anarchy Online, and I gave in to an impulse purchase and had picked up the box to try this online thing out. Of course, I couldn’t have picked a worse game and time for trying MMOs out for the first time because the launch was a total mess. I remember nothing more than a slide-show of standing around in the newbie area, seeing other players and mobs but not being able to do anything about either with a poor internet connection and the troubles that AO was having.
That was me. What about you? When was your MMO birthday, and how long ago was it?
