I miss Auto Assault. It was flawed but it sure was fun driving around shooting things. If it came out for the consoles as well as the PC, we'd still be playing it today.

SWG.

I also miss what Dark & Light was going to be, but never was.

And Auto Assault. Such potential, but something was missing....

Duke Nukem Online, too.

Ditto. Auto Assault was pretty fun. Driving around and jumping ramps and spraying bullets like a maniac, all the destructible objects around and so on.

It just never was worth a $15 type subscription deal for me. Too straightforward and linear with not much meaning (in death or in items or in class function or endgame) to be worth a full time MMO's pricing.

It would have benefited greatly from more flexible payment options like $10 a month or free to play with micropayments.

I miss Horizons the most. It was the only game where you could play a dragon, as well as Satyr, and many other races that most MMOs still don't include even after 10 expansions. The content of Horizons was always poor, but I feel its problems could have been surmounted had it had better management.

SWG classic certainly tasted better than the New Coke version we have today, but I don't count SWG as being dead, just in a management situation not dissimilar from what Horizons died from.

Must confess I'd have thought Horizons more likely to feature on a "which deceased MMO are you most glad is dead?" list.

Personally I miss .hack//fragments. Even though it was Japan only I wish it would have lived long enough to be taken in by the US. That would have been a dream come true.

I miss World of Warcraft before 2.0.x. Raiding was 40 people at once and I actually had to do massive PvP for gear. And there was no you-know-what-imbalance-from-small-battles or shoddily developed "arena gladiator battles."

I miss Earth and Beyond the most. No Sci-fi spaceship MMO has lived up to it. Thankfully, the E&B emulator is coming along nicely and I'll be able to play it again

SWG pre combat upgrade. The player driven economy and society/cities are still unmatched to this day. As well as the awe inspiring sight of one of the real/early jedi's before they became as common place as the countless number of retards that fucked up the game at soe. PvP, with whole guilds and alliances attacking Rebel cities, what a sight to see.

Best game ever--i would drop anything to go and play and reset server--a guy can still dream cant he?
