For a good period of this time - it was simply brilliant, you could become masters of crafts, or you could build boats and go mining, or find land for a house or a castle.
You could steal people's boats full of mined ore, become a wanted criminal and sell that hard earned loot to another player for two-thirds of the price (and you get to keep the boat).
Just go dungeoneering, or form caravan parties or bodyguard guilds, or engage in guild battles or faction wars. Or go slaying world bosses for great treasures and weapons and armour, or catching criminals or duelling.
OR you could ambush other players at the entrance of dungeons and mug them for their hard earned spoils...
You could fully modify your home and turn it into a shop with your own vendor.
You could advertise your shop with teleporting runes that claim to sell 'cheap magic swords' and teleport them to one of the very few islands that you managed to find any land on, complete with a thousand poisonous snakes and an over-priced antidote vendor in your house.
Good, good days... Great game.

SEGA mastermind Yu Suzuki has said that his latest project could pave the way for a continuation of the infamous Shenmue action RPG series.
Speaking to the Japanese press last night about spinoff MMO game Shenmue City, Suzuki explained that he has every intention to create a Shenmue 3 and satisfy the apparently endless requests for a sequel.

I think earlier, I said Oblivion, and that's true to an extent, but yeah, Ultima Online was definitely awesome. It'd be great to see something like that but with today's graphics and first-person perspective.
Being able to own a house, realistically ply a trade, etc. The player-driven economy would really help to eliminate some of the bad things about EverQuest WoW, etc. There is SO much that could be done with this now, but developers just don't seem willing to invest the time and money needed...they want the quick return.
