    Pick up a F2P... there are some great ones out right now (D&D and Runes of Magic spring to mind).

    Noxin.

    For me:
    Pangya
    Star Trek Online beta
    Guild wars
    Sword of the New World (Granado Espada)

    And some other things I dabble in if the above don't interest me.
    I might have a little bit of an attention span problem, when it comes to online games :sad4:

    I use it as an opportunity to do my MyBrute fights. Fun little flash game for killing 5 minutes a day.

    The closest thing to an online game I play other than UO are Mafia Wars, Mobsters 2 and Yakuza Lords on Facebook, and I tend to play them WHILE I play UO, as well as when not playing UO.
    (and feel free to add me on FB for those games - look for ID nickname Basara 549)

    If the net is down to where I can't play online at all, I play Masters of Orion II or Spider Solitaire.

    Aside from playing the "keep logging in repeatedly in the hopes the servers pop up again" game?

    Mmm, sometimes Dofus because it's just silly.
    Guildwars now and then.
    It's not really a game but I mess about in Second Life too.
    Random Linux games too.

    I'm almost ashamed to admit it but... I have been playing some Darkfall Online lately. It reminds me of UO in some ways... I'm not hardcore into it though. Working up a crafter right now. Resource gathering, skill building, avoiding murderers... you know, like UO used to be. ;)

    But don't get me wrong. I love UO. I'm very much over the whole Trammel thing.

    Noxin, it was who wrote Protector. And noxin.net seems to have been down for some time now.

    I remember one of the flash movies there, it had a slow Johnny Cash song in the background. Always made me cry. Never could find it again after noxin.net went down.

    Sounds like Siege to me.

    I play a few other games. Lately I`ve been playing alot of Battlefield Heros. If anyone plays and runs across Stabjya,Boollit or Rod_Bolt (Royals).... DUCK! :)

    I also play Soul of the Ultimate Nation... Excellent graphics,a bit of a grind,but pretty fun pvp based game.
    Project Torque is another good one if your into racing sims.Very good graphics and playability but it seems like its dying out. Last time I played it was pretty dead. A shame,a good game,just poorly ran I think.
    I forgot about Atlantica Online One of my favorites. It is turned based fighting but aside from that,the game is freeking gorgeous. The things you can do there is just mind blowing,like town control and presuading npc resdidents to move to your city. VERY good game. If it wasn`t turn based I don`t think I could ever log out. So good looking,so much eye candy and SO much to do but the turn based thing does get old. I hafta take a break from it every now and again.

    Other than UO I`m a f2p fan. When DoAC dwindled and WAR failed I went searching for the next great one.

    Stiiiiill searching.... If anyone wants to surf a great site for new f2p`s give http://www.freemmorpglist.com/ a try. They have SS`s and movies with almost every game review.

    I think since my plants are watered....its time to go see how many head shots Stabdjya can pull off today! :D :gun:

    Geez, you probably shouldn't have pasted that, that guy is going to be sent a DMCA takedown notice in no time for using UO graphics/sounds.

    I clean my house or watch the shows I have on the DVR. UO is never down when I get ready to play though. I can't imagine playing anything but UO.

    Was it his cover of Hurt? Gotta be the saddest song ever... Makes me tear up every time I hear it. Cash was amazing.

    That's the one, deadite, thanks.

    The song itself is a weepy, for sure. Coupled with the flash movie, which, if memory serves, was set around an old school pker returning to the UO locations of his glory days, and I'm a goner every time.

    Sure wish I could find that one again. Only place I ever saw it was on noxin.net.

    I like driving games.
    That one ruined my ability to corner responsibly in any other driving game
    And Thunder Alley was more fun than it deserved to be
