Hi there Ultima PSO players! My name's Wes and I'm a writer at PC Gamer. A couple months back I interviewed Larva for an article I've had brewing for awhile, about the fanservers like Ultima keeping PSO alive. I've played on the server a few times and am always a little in awe of how nice and welcoming people are. It's a community worth celebrating!
So, as part of my article, I'd like to include a few stories from members here. If you're comfortable sharing your age, that'd be great--I'm curious how old you were if you played PSO on consoles back in the day! Some prompts:
Why are you playing PSO now? Nostalgia? Do you like it more than contemporary MMOs? DO you play with friends?
Has anyone been playing continuously since the Dreamcast or GameCube days?
If you played PSO back in the old days, what made you love it then? Do you still feel the same now, or enjoy it for different reasons?
Have you made lasting friendships/relationships through PSO?
How has PSO impacted your life in the most meaningful way?
What's your weirdest PSO memory?
Does anyone play today with that wonderfully absurd GameCube keyboard controller? (I imagine there's some way to get it working on PC)
Thanks in advance, y'all
