MMO Firsts: A Meme

firsts(Every time I see the word “meme”, I always think of little kids raising their hands in school and going “me!me!me!”  Am I alone on this?)

Because it’s my first official day back to work since my son was born, I’m going to go a bit easy on myself and do a complete fluff piece — while at the same time challenging other blogs and commentators to pick it up and answer it themselves.  This meme/survey is themed around “MMO Firsts”: first big memories for you in online role-playing games.
