UO: Nat’s Thoughts
As I mentioned before, we downloaded the free, 14 day trial for Ultima Online this weekend.
Folks, let me just say a few things before I get started actually talking about the game play and stuff…
I know it sounds stupid. I know it sounds dumb, but as I walked into Brit and heard the music…my eyes watered up a bit.
When I fizzled my first spell I literally got CHILLS. Rotsam and I are playing the classic version of the game right now– and I have to say that I missed it. I missed UO terribly, and didn’t even know it. I’m sure I SHOULD have known it, because we still freaking talk about how great it was constantly. We’ve been gone for 5 whole years and I bet we talk about UO every day.
I only played for a couple of hours last night, but it was hard for me to log off.
For now, we (we being our family and 1/2 of the Ray family) are going to play Ultima. We’ve committed to the decision to at least play for awhile.
Maybe some of our old schoolers will return. Maybe some of our new BiC’ers would be willing to try a ‘classic’ MMO. I know many won’t even give it a chance– but I hope some will.
