I actually was going to joke how that sounds like a porno, but... sounds like I I would've been pretty damn close to being right! lmao
My life is complete.
Motor City Online - Made by EA and was technically a Need for Speed MMO long before the NFS - World MMO came to be... was not modern at all, it was retro... it was muscle cars and street rods!! It wasn't a traditional MMO though, where you run around. It was more of a big chatroom game hub, themed around a Car Hop drive in restaurant, where you'd find people to race on a certain track. Thing is, this wasn't just racing... It was like an RPG of sorts where you BUILT your car up similar to Gran Turismo. You'd start with like $3000, then have to buy a junker starter car. Really wouldn't have enough money to upgrade so, you'd hit the drag strip and cut your teeth. Win some races, earn some money, now you could hit up the parts store. However, there was also an "eBay" in the game (like WoW's auction house) to buy and sell higher end parts. You could customize your car with whatever engine you wanted, too, didn't matter. Wanted a Ford Y-Block in a damn AMC AMX? Do it! Put a MoPAR 440 in an old 32 Ford Coupe. And it used real brand names, with real parts, and real vehicles from the 70s and earlier. Weiand Superchargers, Holley carburetors, Hooker Headers, Offenhauser Intakes, AMC Javelin, Dodge Charger, Chevy Impala! It was a simple game... but for people who loved vintage automotives, racing, and turning wrenches... It was epic! It died long ago, but thanks to that recent law to let people revive old abandoned games that required servers, I heard fans were trying to revive it with a community server.
Thanks for this thread. It was a good trip down memory lane for me.
I miss MCO so much.
That is a game, if any, that they should bring back. It was the best.
What's a shame is that game would be nearly perfect for smart phones these days.
After MCO had its "sunset" I got into Earth & Beyond. It too was pretty darn good. You can actually still play it. Some people have some servers up, but it just isn't the same without all of the people.
