But I think its fair to argue that EQ had much more of an influence on WoW than any other previous MMO. As a former avid Everquest addict the similarities and borrowed (improved upon) ideas are clearly evident in the playstyle that Blizzard aim for. And its an extremely good thing. Everquest did an amazing job at creating an immersive world with compelling gameplay. What let it down was its reliance on pure grind and the inability of its graphics engine to keep up. Blizzard took that ability to make a living breathing world and made it into a beautiful game.That screenie brings back some fun memories. There is nothing quite like the disturbing screech of an EQ skeleton!
