This game was so good that it got banned in Brazil for being too addictive.
Along with Ultima Online, Everquest was my first foray into the wonderful world of MMORPGs. It was deliciously nerdy. I was in a guild. Luckily I got that out of my system before World of Warcraft came along.
I doubt I'll ever play a game so intensely again but I enjoyed the camaraderie of it all.
