The EverQuest series has been pivotal in the development of MMORPGs, and still has a large following over a decade since the original game was released. This section includes links to all your EverQuest essentials.

A Brief History of EverQuest
EverQuest has been around for over a decade and I can't think of any MMORPG that has had more expansions. Here is a brief history of the game and a chronological list of all the expansions released for it so far.

EverQuest 2 Review (PC)
Although the first EverQuest went a long way toward putting MMORPGs on the map, EverQuest 2 faced some serious competition when it launched. Since then there have been adventure packs, expansions, and the addition of PvP servers. The prospect of an all-out war between Qeynos and Freeport was tempting enough to draw me in for a better look.

EverQuest remains the mother of all MMORPGs, being the first 3D game of its kind to catch on in North America. It still has a very large player base, and likely has more content than any of its competitors. The game is set in a mythical realm full of all the usual halflings, ogres, healers, necromancers, and monsters.

This is the sequel to the ever-popular EverQuest series, with spectacular new graphics, good character customization, and a remarkably detailed world to explore.
