Amazon.com: Taking the standard conventions of a Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game--such
Amazon.com Product Description: EverQuest is a massive multiplayer fantasy game. This virtual environment contains its own diverse species, economic systems, and politics. Begin your quest in any city or village on any one of the three continents. Choose a race and class, and seek allies, knowledge, and adventure. You define your destiny in the world of EverQuest.
GameSpot Review: While its intent - to unite thousands of players simultaneously within a huge game world - is similar to other online role-playing games, EverQuest delivers on its promises much more assertively than the competition, though not always gracefully. Between its excellent graphics, its performance, its rich fantasy setting, and its propensity to force you to cooperate with, rather than hinder, your fellow players, EverQuest is the best game in its class. At the same time, it is loaded with problems. Most aren't serious, though many are glaring, but just as you're liable to notice its flaws, so will you be inclined to look beyond them once you see how much the game has to offer.

Learn skills, earn experience, and acquire treasure and equipment, meet friends and encounter enemies. A multitude of quests and adventures await, but you choose your role, you define your destiny. But whether you make yourself a noble human knight, a vicious dark elf thief, a greedy dwarven merchant, or whatever else suits your desire, remember one thing: you are in our world now.

Everquest is a name which is in every online player's vocabulary. It is a game which revolutionized online gaming, and has made an impact on many people who haved played it. The imaginary world of Norrath is full of creatures that are waiting for you. Sounds great, but it really isn't as fun as many people make it out to be. First of all, you have to start by being a "newbie", which is basically having all of the higher levels laugh at you, and they will get their laughs out of you any way they can. Another bad thing about being a newbie is that you can only kill a few animals, which gets old real fast.
Now, don't get me wrong, this is a fun game. The characters are really diverse, and the people controlling them are extremely diverse. Some people really try to play this game. Some people just run around making it a horrible exprience for other gamers. I have had experience doing both, and they are both equally fun. Another good thing about this game are the settings. No two zones look alike, and the starting points for each race are extremelly different. The halflings will start out in a forest, while the Barbarians will start out in a snowy region.
Overall, this game is fun, but it really isn't worth your ten bucks a month, and it definetly isn't worth your life.

I have been playing this game since April 2001 and have not stopped since then. Yes this is an addicting game and requires time on your part. The drawbacks are you meet alot of people who are immature and think because they have a higher character are big stuff the pros are meeting new people from everywhere, I have played with people from Germany, France, Canada, and the UK. This does not include all the players i have meet online from all over the US. If you like RPG then this is the ULITMATE in RPG and you need to get it. But remember to have a life too.
