Dark Age of Camelot

I was hoping for a next generation game when I read the hype before this game's release. Unfortunately, this was not to be. DAOC is an incredibly good game, it solves many of the problems that players had encounted in EQ and it offers a lot of new features that add to the MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) genre. It is not, in my opinion, a next generation game, it doesn't offer something groundbreaking to the genre. Perhaps I have become a little cynical about the driving premise behind all of the currently existing MMOGs, but I can't wait for a MMOG that I can't judge or analyze based on previous games, a game that is truely unique. Check out the parody of games like EQ,AC and DAOC at progress quest, there are definately comparisons that can be drawn. All that said I still played this game casually for about 6 months before it lost it's appeal and not for lack of effort by it's developers Mythic. While I played Mythic did a fantastic job of keeping the game running and developing new content and I understand that they are continuing to do so.
