I was there. I would have been one of the NC bastards, but I was there, heh.

Planetside was pretty great, and yeah, the best battles are burned in my brain, where you were just throwing EVERYTHING at them because everything was on the line and the walls outside the base SEETHED with enemy.

Pretty fun stuff. I'll never forget it.

The only reason I don't play Planetside anymore is because I don't want to tarnish my fond memories like these. Planetside was a fantastic, immersive experience of the likes I fear I won't see again for a long time. Cohesive squads that were friends and brothers in arms, drudging across vast continents and wading through hopeless battles.

I've never been in the armed forces, and I'm not interested in glorifying war, but I'd like to think that my days in Planetside were a small glimpse into the comradery and visceral existentiality a conflict like that can produce. If anything it's like remembering a sports pasttime.

And I do miss it.

My best MMO memories are definitely in Planetside. I would still be playing, but I got frustrated with PS crashing my system about every 30 minutes.

The battles involving 100's of people at once were AMAZING! I would totally buy Planetside 2 if it ever gets made! Too bad Huxley doesn't look like it will have the massive tactical battles that PS provided...
