Sony Online Entertainment's pioneering massively multiplayer online game Everquest turned 10 yesterday, and while celebrating with an unattractive woman popping out of a cake is nice, nothing beats a worldwide dance party.

While Amanda is far too young to remember, I was there for the launch of the original Everquest. I wrote about the beta before the game was launched. I spent a good four to five years immersed in it. I lost at least one job over it, but to be honest the job did kind of suck.

I did all that, and yes...I danced. I might have been a half-elf and not a human, but the cabbage patch is the universal language in the world of Norrath.
