So EverQuest turned 20 years old last month. I know a lot of games have been having their 20, 25, and 30th anniversaries recently, but the EQ one kind of felt like a little bit of a punch. I think because unlike Mario or Zelda, EverQuest was a game I associated with my adulthood rather than my childhood. I picked it up and had a new PC built for it a couple months after I graduated college when I had saved a few dollars from my glamorous position as a sales assistant. It was definitely a game changer for me. I was pretty damn well addicted to it in a way that I hadn't been before with video games, and had it not been for Harvest Moon 64's release I might not have been able to pry myself away from the PC and back to consoles. Granted it would only be a few months later that I'd go back to EQ and ultimately for the next couple years it would be an off-again/on-again kind of situation for me until my PC was no longer able to run it at a good rate.

But it was a marvelous experience all the same, and I thought I'd record a few of the more memorable and ridiculous experiences before I'm too old and feeble to remember them any longer.
