My first encounter with Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game, MMORPG, was Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided in 2003. A friend was going to buy and play this, and I decided to give it a try as well.
This was not so long after I first got broadband, and was able to sit and play continuously for as many hours online as I wanted. This was especially special.
It was one month of playing. There was plenty to do here, but I mostly think that time was spent walking around and making stuff. After an update, vehicles were introduced, and I think this led to the game going loading slow. So about that time I quit.
