The Ultima series, naturally. I've always been big into RPGs over any other type og game, so I suppose you could include table-top gaming as well in that regards.

MegaWars III

I maxed out my Compuserve account playing that game (which for the youngsters out there, meant $300/month).

I would've saved money if I'd gone with a cocaine habit instead!! :)

I'm probably going to have to second the vote for the Ultima series, myself. When you put Ultima 7 together with 7.5, they were practically an MMO already, albeit without any other people. :)

They had the wide-open vistas and do-anything world that made me yearn to see it populated with other people. I admit, the actuality hasn't caught up to my early yearnings, but I think MMO society is still evolving and may end up in a much more interesting place than it is now.

Probably my big start was the door games on BBSes. Most people forget about those, but they really were the first MMORPG. They had hundreds of people playing, they were online, and they had roleplaying elements. If you haven't played them, give them a shot. There is an update to Tradewars you can play through your web browser, and the famous Kingdom of Loathing has very similar mechanics to a door game.
