I played on Buxville.net for a while, you can pay ?10 to skip the queue, and it's one of the more lively Survival servers, with economy and character classes.
Also, City Craft is quite good, has 2 servers:
You role-play as an elf/kid
you collect items
it's story heavy
it has an in game menu with inventory
it has towns and dungeons
real time combat, based on timing not probability (someone will correct me and say both are involved, no...
I'm not saying this doesn't happen. What I'm saying is that people who negatively stereotype gamers aren't thinking about the type of games being played. I'm disagreeing with the original poster by saying that the type of game has nothing to do with being looked down upon. I've heard people say...
Is what you are saying this: if one plays shooting games or sports games one will be considered normal by society, and if one plays other types of videogames one will be regarded as a weirdo?
If that's what you're saying I think it's patent nonsense. If some people think of people who play...
This is a great article. I'd like to see more of Kyle Orland's writing on the Escapist and will look out for it.
It kind of got me wondering if in 20 years' time someone will write a similar article about the Playstation 2.

Amazon is not the place to buy it from. My advice: if it's not a book, don't buy it from amazon.
there, much more reasonable
I never liked Wakka. I just didn't. He's my least favourite. I didn't like Barret for basically just being a copy of Mr T. That's who Barret was. I like all of the whiny main characters. It's kind of the point of them to be whiny so it makes it easier for us to notice them finding themselves...
I've been following this on Twitter for the soap opera element, I guess, and the more I see of Lulzsec, the less I am impressed.
Sure, I don't know how to do SQL injection attacks. But I have had sex with an other human being, which I am fairly certain is something he hasn't.
I'd like to see games go back to cartridges. Seriously. With 16 GB flash cards costing around £15 now, it could be more expensive, yes, but just think of how beautiful the minimal loading times would be.
