Unfortunately, Anarchy Online is still their best game (arguably).

What I wouldn't give for an Anarchy Online 2 announcement. It would be my most want of the last 10 years (aside from HL3). Yes, I realize you all think I'm insane, but if you haven't played AO in the last several years, you're missing a rare treat.
