When developers saw the incredible success of the first MMORPG in history, Ultima Online, it was only a matter of time before they would react. Sony was the next company to step into this very promising market with their high-budget EverQuest.

While Ultima Online is a representative of the first generation of such games, and Asheron’s Call is definitely the second generation, EverQuest should be qualified as “one and a half”. Having an opportunity to observe the mistakes Ultima Online made, the developers of EverQuest managed to avoid most of them; however, they made their own, for example: lack of balance in character classes and races.

Despite that fact, the game is still very popular and high-level characters can be bought on Internet auctions for sums that exceed 1000 American dollars. It can be shocking, but one must remember that creating such a character takes months and that is provided that its owner plays a few hours a day, every day. Moreover, the subscription fee is 10 dollars a month.

Just like in any massive multiplayer game, EverQuest offers the opportunity to interact with thousands of other players from all around the world, as well as a huge amount of race/class combinations, while each and every one of them is played differently.
