Some of the lobbies in this game were amazing.
The Guardians Colony with it's amazing music, hanging out in the club and 4th floor shenanigans.
Falz Memoria, again, amazing music, and just a great place to afk and chat in general. The place most players went when the servers were shut down.
Parum had Holtes City, more amazing music and just a cool futuristic looking place in general. The most Phantasy Star looking city in the game for me.
Paracabana Coast, the beach area.....and of course, more amazing music and another great place to hang out.
Vio Tonga, the snowy area with that cave.
There a ton of other good lobbies too. I haven't seen a game come anywhere close to making lobbies as good. It was a shame they ditched the lobbies for future games. I know some ended up empty and there was probably too many in PSU overall, but I do miss this existing in games. It made Phantasy Star Online games kind of unique, PSO2 and especially NGS seems to have lost that uniqueness.
PSO2's only good lobby was the cafe. The main hub and shop area were kinda bland and boring and the casino is nice but that announcer and music gets annoying quickly. Central City in NGS is terrible, easily the worst main hub in any Phantasy Star game to date. It's just so generic looking, boring and feels kinda dead. The music sucks too.
