For me, EVE Online continues to be "that frighteningly hardcore online space game that I never want to play, ever, but occasionally enjoy hearing about." That's not meant as an insult; you have to commend a game -- or anything, really -- that's able to stick to its guns for eight years.
Props, then, to the team at CCP for seeing such a grand vision to completion (if such a thing can even be achieved, when it comes to always-expanding online games). To show thanks, the studio is giving out six-packs of Quafe Zero. Details on how to grab yours can be found here.
Says CCP executive producer Nathan Richardsson of the anniversary: "Eight years of EVE Online, where grown men cry, great women fly and entire empires rise and die. EVE is real. Forever."
