    Probably runescape as well. I did not really play it that often, but it could be considered my first online game. Call of duty was a close second. It wasn't so much I wasn't aware of the potential to play online, but when it came to competing or at least playing online with others in that particular sense that would be the series for me. As for the game from the series, at the time it was MW2.

  3. Runescape, I still play it though occasionally, this game and World of Warcraft are one of the best mmos to date. Runescape may feel outdated now but no other MMO can hold a candle in the shadow of Runescape's quests! They are the best ever and I think will always remain that way while WoW will always be the top one for raids and ample content.

    The first online game I played was phantasy star online on the sega dream cast but online play sucked back then. What got me into mmorpg's was MU Online. I liked it cuz it looked like Diablo My favorite game back then lol. Then I got into other online games. But I've mostly played Dota battlenet hamachi garena then steam.

    Hmm ... I have to think about this one a bit, truth be told. It was well over a decade ago, lol! :D

    I know for sure the Games Domain Castle was one of the earliest online game sites I started playing on. Other sites like FlyOrDie and Pogo were other gaming sites I would frequent. What, if anything, was before that is honestly anyone's best guess - God only knows for sure, lol! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Although I still ocassionally return to those sites - with the GDC being the only exception - the one that I've always returned to is RuneScape (which I actually only learned of through the GDC); I credit RuneScape as being the game that introduced me to the genre of gaming I enjoy most (unless you consider Donkey Kong, Mario, etc), so, for me, I can honestly say I'll be playing that game until the end! :blush:

    For me it was AoE2. I got addicted to this game so much that for more than 3 years I played this game at least 6 hours a day. So addictive that I got in to online gaming for the first time.

    Definitly Halo Custom Edition.
    Woah. I remember the first time I played it (I died so many times xD)
    Shame that you can only use XFire now to play online :/ (At least that's my problem)

    Been playing games for almost as far back as I can remember but online gaming came to me in the form of CS 1.6 after seeing some classmates playing it in class

    Probably Starcraft Brood War for me. I played that with friends but then kind of got into some of the custom maps and stuff on battle.net. I really branched out after Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare though. I started playing all sorts of stuff online. Currently my most regularly played is LoL though.

    Runescape in middle school was my first foray into mmos and rpgs. That had me occupied for a while but it wasn't until halo that I really got into online. I got Halo CE for pc and I played that sooooo much. I even got recruited into a clan and used a voice chat thing. Then a couple years later I borrowed a copy of the original cod and played that online as well. That cemented my involvement in online gaming. Even though I didn't have xbox live for the first year and a half I had a 360, playing cod and halo online on pc kept me going when I couldnt on console.

    First every game?
    That'll have to be Runescape. Looking back, it was so long ago. I hadn't even reached double digits when I started.

    Then a good few years later, and a move to another country, I got an xbox 360. The first game I played online on that was CoD MW2.
    Now I just casually play the odd PC game interspersed with playing stuff on my flatmates' consoles.
