I thought I'd share my experience with what to me has to be the most over-rated video game I have played to date.
I was given I copy of Everquest that came with a free 30 day trial subscription. So I load the game and go through a rather odd sign up process and create my avitar and jump into the world of Everquest. After getting the bascs of movement etc down and figure out how get out and about what do I find???... My first meeting with another user was a what looked like a midget with a club who kept on trying to run in circles around me while hitting me with a club (quite a welcome wagon I must say). After eluding the mad midget I wandered around and found a small group of players standing around a flying rat that they were trying to kill and cast very spells on while cheering each other on with very verbose comments.
The thrill of watching the attempted murder of the flying rat was soon surpassed by the approach of a giant Wasp that seemed to like to buzz around me and try to stay in front of me. I soon managed to escape the wrath of the wasp and was soon approached by what looked like one those green chicks from the old Star Trek series who proceded to insult me for only being a newbee level 1 player while he (yes she tured out to be a he) was a powerful level 3 and proceded to try to kill me. So after runningfrom the green dude I found my way to a Tavern located in the sky where I made camp behind the bar and had my mango to sleep.
I have not found a game to be so elitist and over-rated, the graphics were only so-so, I might try it again if anyone else out there is a Everquest played and can help me beat the crap out of that maniac midget.
Oh well it's off to the Cardiologist for me, so if anyone else has a game that they think is over-rated please add yours here or if you like or dislike EverQuest please post here as well
