Let's see... before reading the article, my top ten would be.... hmmmm... in no particular order, and pretty much the only criteria is the ones I played most:

Ultima Online
Star Wars Galaxies
Dark Age of Camelot
City of Heroes
DC Universe Online
World of Warcraft (Hate to admit it)
Eve Online
Everquest II
Star Trek Online
Lord of the Rings Online

Honorable mention: Wurm Online and Fallen Earth.

Okay, now I can go read the article :)

I read the article, and there's enough overlap with my list to please me :)

Although Ultima wasn't the first multiplayer RPG, it WAS (arguably) the first MASSIVELY multiplayer, orders of magnitude more populated than any of the prior entries, and the game for which the term was coined.

But it's a subjective determination, and I'm not taking anything away from the MUDs, MUSHES and Meridian 59 (which is apparently still running).

Second Life would have made my list except I never think of it as an MMO.
