Definitely LOTRO, followed by a fiendish EVE.

Either L2 or EVE, their a juicy contradiction.

WoW sadly...I had some great experiences with that game and the world (especially since I was a big fan of the series before that). I haven't played for about 3 years but I still think about it from time to time...I think I still have all the zone layouts completely memorized, how sad is that? The only thing keeping me away is knowing that everything I loved about the game no longer exists anymore. They have changed everything so much even from when I stopped playing it (which was the reason I stopped playing it in the first place) and now with Cataclysm, they changed all the zones that I had such fond memories of.

I have a couple

Asherons Call, DAoC and Lineage 2...nothing else since has captured me like the classics.

Vanguard came close and had SOE bothered with it, it may have earned that special place but as it stands...its just an average, forgotten grinder.

Probably one of the few but: Aion. I keep going back, when I have time (school). Not sure what keeps bringing me back but I dig it.

@The Minn
Likewise. I've plugged more hours into the game than any other MMO I've tried in my (short) life, and I've played plenty. Something about how the open world PvP really gets the blood flowing (though not always in a good way).

I'm still playing Ultima Online. I was away for many years, but when I logged back in, it was like coming home. It's not my only game, and I don't play it frequently, but I'll probably be with it until they shut it down (or until they shut me down).

EQ2, in a very very big way. I don't like the way it is now particularly, which is why I no longer play it, but I played from just before DoF to just before SoF, and it seriously shaped my outlook towards other MMOs, a lot of mechanics within other MMOs get internally translated to the EQ2 version in my head without me noticing, it carved out my playstyle, I almost always customise my UI within another MMO to be as close to ProfitUI as it can be, and it has dramatically shaped how I think about combat and encounters and all that.

Shame about the devs though eh? Otherwise I could just play EQ2...

I played WoW at release for about 6 months. Got a Hunter to 60, sold my account for 5-600$ and never looked back. Do not even read about the expansions or anything from it.

Eve Online, GW, AOC, and LOTRO. I just cant put them down. I also miss my first MMO Earth and Beyond. Anarchy Online is starting to be an MMO I have been enjoying.

SWG was the hardest to leave since day 1, but it has been almost 2 years since I last logged in. I also miss Vanguard. I wish I had the money\studio to purchase VG and release it to the public with a development team. It would be a dream come true for this old daddy.

Most immersive world.

Second would be Dofus - the most pleasant grinder ever :)

FFXI. I've left and returned four times now. I can't name what the thing is that's missing from other games that I find there, but I just love the world - it feels like coming home.

LOTRO for me, because I have lifetime and can't find a permanent home anywhere else. Every now and then, I'll reinstall and go complain, mess with people or talk to the old friends that are still left. Hey, it's something to do...

UO, first MMO I have ever played, I still come back to it once a while.

My more modern favorites:

DDO Online
Star Trek Online

FFXI. I still tend to compare everything to it, I miss it terribly at times, I very badly wanted XIV to be an excellent successor to it (still do), and I don't think I'll ever be as invested in an MMO again as I was in it.

FFXI.
So many memories. Departures and eventual returns. Friends made that I still have to this day, a decent number of which (mostly JP) made the move with me to XIV.

SE has made many a ¥1500 from me. They earned it.

UO was the first great love. I played the UO Freeshard IPY when it hit and i intend to check out IPY2 when it releases as well.

Besides that, WoW usually pulls me in with every expansion. But each time has been less engaging then the previous go round. This past expansion, Cataclysm, I logged in for a week and decided WoW just isn't for me anymore. I can no longer enjoy it which is sad =/.

Currently I am in a hardcore marriage to Darkfall which i think has changed gaming for me forever (this i think is both a good and bad thing). Nothing else comes close to the adrenaline rush of DF. Its hard to play anything else, even with all DF's flaws.
