Probably a Sandbox game like Darkfall or Shadowbane (if it was still going), just for the endlessness of the content, if I had to go any other direction it would probably be GW2.

Well it would have to be a game you could play without other players.

I say AGE OF CONAN - just because its sooo damn EPIC and while playing, you will get motivation for survival! FOR HYBORIA!!

In all seriousness, AOC, Gods and Heroes, Fallen Earth or WOW - just because there is soooooo much content you can do without need of another player.

#1 is AOC just because most of us have had tons of practice playing without others because of the sheer amount of scumbags - but there are also a lot of amazing people.

Soo many games I havent gotten into I wish I had the time for- lol

Have a great weekend people- S!

@(Unverified) No, no, no. There'll be other players. You can raid and roleplay, you just can't tell anyone you're the brunt of some twisted, surreal joke in which you're stuck on a desert island, can't use the Internet other than for playing MMOs without telling anyone you're stuck on a desert island.

I'd hate to be on Brianna's bad side. She has a mean streak.

I would bring WoW.... It has the largest player base which means my odds of finding someone who could help me get off the island would be higher.

@Repopulation Telling a WoW player you're stuck on a desert island will probably result in him calling you a noob before ninja-ing your girlfriend.

If you are limited to currently active games; Guild Wars.

If Minecraft counts, I'd go for that as long as I could also get the JDK - then I could mod it to my heart's content.

If not, then either EVE for sandboxiness or WoW to work on getting all the achievements.

Probably RIFT, atleast I know the devs would keep adding to the stuff regualy, cause I would think it would get rather boring on an island real fast... Unless there were dinosaurs or canibals or something on it then it would be a rather intersting place to live.

But in all honesty I wish Creative Assembly would make a Total War MMO, I would be happy to be marooned on an island with a ROME/Medieval total war MMO.

EVE, I could run afk bot army while i forage food and resources on the island and then RMT all that cash and hire a rescue party (and buy a summer house in Italy).

And shoot people in the face while I wait for rescue!

Rift. You know it is just getting better and more interesting.

My thoughts on others:

WoW, almost my first choice, but end game gear chasing spoils it and the WoW I remember doesn't exist any more.

LOTRO, almost my first choice, but not sure if I'd have a credit card on that island.

AoC, not really my first choice, but an intriguing possibility, certainly getting combat down and trying to figure out the skill tree would be absorbing.

Guild Wars, not my first choice either. I'm alone on an island, don't think I want to play a game where I'm alone in an instance.

GW2, if this were out, it would be my first choice, but since we don't talk about Fight Club, I'll leave it at that.

SWTOR, art design is too depressing, and I want happiness alone on that island.

EQII, might actually make a fairly good first choice, since I've only played it enough to know that it is enjoyable and don't know enough about it not to like it.

DDO, also an intriguing possibility. I've played this game, not only is it hard to master, it is hard to get into if you aren't a D&D fan, but that means there's untold re-rolls of classes while I try to figure out what skills are actually skills and which are something else that matters but who knows what that is.

Vanguard. I'm alone on an island. Am I also a masochist?

Gods and Heroes, here now. How is the bug squashing going? If the Gods can guarantee that I don't crash just as I have finally gotten to the quest object or just as I am engaging the boss, I might bite on this one.

So, I'm back at Rift's solid game play, entertainments, class structure, crafting, public events, itemization, dev dedication, and constant updates.

Okay, how do I get to this island?

Alone on a desert island with an MMO? Whichever one will teach me what I need to know to get off the island probably. Seriously, MMO gaming is no substitute for real life family and friends, even if gaming is my favorite time passer.

Rift. It'll teach me the fishing and survival skills I'll need.

(Actually, I'd choose it for the regular updates)

Wurm.

It's the only mmo I've ever played where I discovered no matter how much free time I sink into it, there's always so much more to do:

So I want to make a boat. I mine ore to make tools, fell trees to make tools and resources, then grind out my various tool making skills to get them high enough to make tools good enough to make boat making easy enough. Then I'm hungry. Need to go forage for seeds, make farm tools (using aforementioned tool skills), plant seeds, tend them, go forage for cotton, make some string, carve some wood into a fishing hook and pole to make a fishing rod and catch fish. Harvest crops, make a pan (again using aforementioned tool skills), make a fire, cook some meat and vege and eat. Phew! Now back to shipmaking ... sigh. And this is the short version (cutting about half the steps or more) and I still haven't put down a single hull plank for my damn boat.

Still its a hell of a lot of fun :)

Most likely DDO. Eve is tempting because of the size of the environment. However DDO has always been fun and there is reincarnation to extend the playability of characters.
