Who still plays UO?

I don't, but if I do, it sure as hell won't be the official one. They lost their way long ago.

If I ever go back it'll be the crafting, I absolutely loved it.

People who play on free shards that are set before the game was ruined... that's who. And mostly because they realize it is the BEST MMORPG ever.

Most likely. Some shards actually improved the whole sandbox concept that made UO great.
Nice review btw.

I don't, but still think about getting back into it sometimes. I've never had so much fun than when I first got this game back in 1998.

I think the crafting in Ultima Online has probably been the best crafting system in any game to date.  The stuff you can create and how to create them is just mind blowing. 
 
I play UO off and on, at times.  It really depends.  As of lately I've just accepted that nostalgia is the only reason why I go back anymore.

I played on German Freeshards for a while; Himmelsstadt and Alathair. Also as a GM for a while.
 
They're all slowly dying, sadly. I had some damn good times with this game. Also got to know a lot of awesome people!
