Man, 13 years, that's an old girl ... I've played UO for 7 years right from the beginning, and those were the best mmo-years I've ever had, that's for sure.

Oh Lord, give us UO 2 (and Shenmue 3 :D).

Shame they killed the game with that stupid expansion very early on.

The one that showed how many of UO's playerbase actually enjoyed open pvp and how many merely tolerated it because they had no choice?

Yep, some of my best gaming memories come from UO.

Wish they had gone ahead with the Kingdom Reborn client, that looked like quite a nice coat of paint to an aging game.

What? They did go forward with it.

It was somewhat fixed (the original KR client was a big buggy mess) and rebranded as the "Enhanced Client" and is currently very usable afaik.

I still do prefer the original 2d client, ultima just looks better in sprites :)

So cool to have all those old memories of "Vesuvius" on the Great Lakes Shard come flooding back to me. Nothing today (except maybe Eve) even comes close to the true open world, wild wild west feel that was UO in the 97-99 era.

I might have to fire my account back up for this new come back and play program to see how the old world has held up.

Great read.

UO was the best game of all time. Even for a couple years post-trammel the guild wars with that great new combat system just pwned.

UO2 Please!
