I started gaming at the age of 15. I've always been drawn towards MMORPGs and that's my main focus in the gaming industry.
My First paid MMO was Earth and Beyond, man do I miss that game.
My second paid MMORPG was Star Wars Galaxies, when it first launched. I won't go into details regarding the rise and fall of SWG but I will say I have not found a game, personally, that fits my sandbox style game-play.
