Default Re: Who else is excited about VANGUARD!

A real MMO was Ultima Online. What a game, by far the greatest piece of entertainment in history. What couldn't you do in that game. It had everything. Insane quests, outrageously good PvP. No levels at all, skills individually raised based on the amount of use they got, stats too. There were no classes or races, you got to put together characters as you saw fit, making for an infinite amount of builds and playstyles. The world was huge and every part of it was an adventure every day that you played it. Houses, factions, town control, mounts, everything that you could want in a game, ever, was in there. Just talking about it brings back a flood of memories I have with that game. 4 years of my life I spent playing that game, and loved every second of it.

And then, of course, EA managed to completely **** it up and ruin it. Congratulations EA. What historically amazing gaming franchise haven't they managed to ruin yet?
