    I often wish the Devs would check some of these out and read some of the comments... Some comments from former UO players are interesting.

    I put my vote in for UO. I could care less about the other 2 choices. And I agree Kelmo some of the comments from former players are very interesting.

    I dunno so much about listening to former players. I mean after enough time EVERY MMO just turns into a bunch of people arguing over which expansion "killed" it. Even WoW has been that way for years.

    Not only that, but I saw comments following interviews with current UO staff that said "omg, I used to love this game" / " I'm thinking of re-installing when I get home" / "so many good memories". It's like there's a world of players out there just waiting for the devs to take the right turn.
