Yes they are. Or were, anyway. EQ used to be called a "graphical MUD" before the term MMORPG caught on. I think a lot of people wouldn't know what you were talking about if you used the term MUD anymore though. Anyway, not too into them myself, so I can't really answer the OP.

I used to play MUDs back in the day (10-15 years ago), but I haven't played one in ages. Once EQ came out I don't think I ever took another look at one, really.

I actually still play two MUDs from back in the day.

Of course, I play new MMOs from time to time, and try most of the ones that come out... but I always go back to my old MUDs.

There are two really popular ones by Simutronics:

Gemstone IV

and

DragonRealms

I love em.
