Seems like Achaea got some love in the comments but so did other MUDs. A few SimuBots were offering free trial accounts, as if anyone in their right mind would stick around afterwards to pay their exorbitant subscription. What is DragonRealms like $15 a month just to play and then $25/$50 tier subscriptions for extra content? ---- that.

My first MUD was gemstones3. Back when it was free on AOL, ha! But yeah, to get on the good server you are going to be shelling out 50$ a month. Too much. The only thing in that article I didn't agree with was the idea of the "bigger and better" new games that are out.  They are just bigger and more graphical. The content is far too static. I'd trade graphics for immersion any day. We need better peripherals before graphical games will begin to compete with MUDs.
