It started the dlc craze
You wanna be technical, computer games in general but especially Everquest started the DLC craze. Yearly to bi-yearly repurchases were a big thing on the PC in it's early years.
As for my contribution to the topic: I second erasing World of Warcraft. MMOs aren't inherently bad but it created a blueprint that many companies attempted to follow without really understanding why it worked or how, they just wanted to get in and get that cash.
I'd have been much more interested in seeing a true evolution to Everquest, DAoC, etc rather than what WoW became by Lich King.
