A few months ago there was a great post over on Massively about the Visual History of MMORPGs.
You may be surprised to learn that Meridian 59 wasn’t the first MMORPG ever.
Or, probably not. The article is actually well-researched. There’s enough data in each entry to give you an idea of what the game was like, but it really demands that a good game developer go do more research. But, this article may give a more casual user some information that they didn’t have before.
I hope there’s a part II in the future. Perhaps even some articles that go into more depth about the older games.
