Glad someone said that right off. That was my imediate reaction to that headline. EQ was original in many ways, but it has plenty of predecessors. To illustrate further, Ultima Online wouldn't have existed without MUDs. (UO wouldn't have existed without the Ultima series as well, but that's kind of self-evident.) MUDs wouldn't have existed without Dungeons & Dragons and other pencil-and-paper RPGs. D&D et al wouldn't have existed without various works of fiction and various mythologies from around the world. And so on...Now if someone could come up with a way to work Kevin Bacon into that list, we'd really have something there.
