March 16, 1999 was like any other day but for Sony it marked the release of EverQuest. While it wasn’t the first MMORP of its time, it proved to have exceptional staying power.

Throughout its 15-year history there have been 20 expansions. However, in 2011 it received its bggest honor when it was inducted into the GDC Online Awards Hall of Fame.

To celebrate the game’s 15th anniversary of its launch tomorrow, Sony released a video looking back at the game’s early years, all the memories and mostly thanking its fans.

In addition to this momentous occasion, Sony also released an infographic which shows off culture andchanges within the game from 1999 to 2014.

Check out the infographic and video below.

Former genius and a woman of mystery and power, whose power is exceeded only by her mystery, Dana Abercrombie has been playing video games since birth (yes birth...we did say "genius"). Despite her secret desire of wanting to give it all up to become a gorgeous billionaire, Dana is most passionate about video games and films often times getting in many heated debates resulting in being thrown out of many gatherings. Despite having a degree in English AND Journalism (multi-tasking FTW!) from the University at Albany-SUNY, she is currently interested in perusing a degree at Yale Law School, because one should never give up on a dream of becoming a gorgeous billionaire...and knowing how to sue someone as a result of those heated debates
