Technically Everquest, but it wasn't really a proper introduction. In college I had four friends who were sharing a townhouse; at the time they all played EQ. One of them had to leave for work right after he died, and they really needed to get him re-leveled, so they handed me a random EQ character and had me sit there spamming one spell for an hour as they got him back up.

And then they wondered why I didn't want to get into it, or vanilla WoW later on. (I did eventually start WoW just before Wrath-- it was the first MMO I actually had an account for.)

technically if neopets counted that. Aside from that though there was Maple stories which i kinda played a bit for a small period of time then said screw it. eventually i tried a couple random MMOs felt way to grindy and never got into the genre. fast foward more recently i tried out Tera and got into it a fair bit and played it for a good amount of time.

Asheron's Call. Followed swiftly by the more-graphically-impressive (and more interesting overall, IMO) Everquest, with the Kunark expansion. Didn't get super far in either of them though. Alt-itis is a terrible thing in a slow-leveling MMO.
The sole purpose of this space is to make my post look longer.

That reminds me, I actually played a lesser known game called Mystic Realms of Alhanzar back around 2000.

That would have been my first MMO style game.

SWG on release. Fell in love with openworld sandbox mmo's and it's been all themepark ever since.
Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 112

Runescape in 2002 I believe.

Switched to WoW when it came out.
Error. Human is dead, mismatch.

No MUDs eh? Then I assume BBS door games like Trade Wars won't count.\

I remember playing that game. Great game

Meridian 59, but the first one I played fervently was WoW.
