Any games that give the same feeling of exploration and discovery that UO had? Single or multi-player. I never played a single player Ultima game, would any of them give me the same feeling I had exploring UO's Sosaria with nothing but that shitty cloth map to guide me?
Anyway,>What are some of your classic online gaming memories?
In UO, I remember abusing provocation back when your skill determined chance to provoke monsters by a flat %, as opposed to higher skill letting you provoke more difficult monsters. You could provoke 2 drakes onto each other with shitty provo skill if you tried enough times. It was actually pretty fun to sit back and watch things kill each other, using arrows to make sure they stayed about the same health, then finishing off the one that lived. Also, joining guilds and declaring war on other guilds, killing each other in the middle of the city. I remember spending a shitload of gold on some helm of invulnerability, thinking it actually made me invulnerable
I also put a lot of hours into Asheron's Call too. I had your typical memories there: first atlan weapon. Getting GSA (I opted for GSA pants + GSK top because it looked cooler, even though it took more time to buff). Killing Olthoi queen. Shit like that...
