I realllllly hate Leroy J*****s. It was staged, it was dumb. (and people always forget the real Leroy, the master)

But ummm, interesting list.

Nice list, though not sure why the two EQ2 chars are in it.

Firiona Vie, NPC, Everquest. She is literally the MMORPG poster child. Even gamers who have never stepped foot into a virtual world know this is “the Everquest chick.” If there is a single iconic representation of MMORPG’s, she’s it. She’s also a great example of how evil never attacks your midriff, arms, legs, head, or cleavage.


Call me a bit odd, I dont even know who Firiona Vie is, or that there ever was an MMORPG 'poster child'.

Here are some pictures.

EverQuest doesn't get the same level of promotion that it used to, so while longtime MMO players will know Firiona Vie, if you're relatively new to the market/genre, you won't have seen her nearly as much.

Well, Firiona Vie was in the front of every of the first 4 or 5 boxed EverQuest releases (game + expansions) so many came to simply relate her to EQ as the main character and off course, until WoW, EQ WAS the definition of MMO so that naturally lead people to see her as the icon of MMOs.

Well, ive been in the genre for a long time, just that ive been living under a rock for a long time. I was with a small-time MMO (Darkspace) For over 6-7 years before I finally decided to move on to other MMOs.

heheh! If you guys haven't heard of Fansy, give that one a read. Very interesting bard from one of EQ's PK servers.

Fansy is pretty much the ONLY icon from Everquest that I know.

Firiona Vie to me is a excellent MMORPG icon. Just a picture can send me reeling back to the good ol days.

That list made me giggle, though they missed one more MMO icon -- "Burned Woods".

It would be funny if Ted was higher on the list than Woody.

A place; Crossroads. EVERY game this far has more or less same themed place... can vary a tad in names but meh, its allways there.

The Noob (http://www.thenoobcomic.com/daily/strip225.html) did a comic about this a while ago (though I have no idea if they are the first to do so, as perhaps doing a comic about the crossroads is also inevitable).

Wow, I remember reading those Fansy stories a long long time ago. I completely forgot about them until seeing them just now. Anywho, can't say I necessarily agree with the order everything is in or with every choice there, but a good list all the same.

kinda a bit sad to not see Mennix on the list. He's the guy who made people realise MMO GM's could do their job right(and thus demanded a higher standard) one of the true heroes of those who ever encountered him.

Never heard of Mennix, who is he?
