You never forget your first love. I first came to mmos with the arrival of Star Wars Galaxies. I was living with a huge Star Wars fan at the time (huge meaning a dedicated fan that is, not morbidly obese) and he couldnâ€™t get his wallet out fast enough to buy Galaxies on its release. Being a video game junkie I gave it a go, but wasnâ€™t hooked. Sorry, but my geek credentials donâ€™t extend to being a fan of the holy trilogy â€“ Iâ€™m ignoring episodes 1 â€“ 3. However, I did get my first taste of mmos and a pattern was formed in my mind; I had discovered where my tastes lay. Not long after SOE released a fantasy mmo (much more my cup of tea) and upon trying Everquest II I was hooked, my preference had blossomed into full blown love.
