Why WoW?

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
why does everyone like Wow so much? a friend talked me into playing it and it was horrible. it was by far the worst game ive ever played, even the old game Snood is more fun. Wow takes like no skill or brain power, it is so simple and boring, its basicaly the guy with the higher level wins because the damage is greater or somthing, i just think that is gay, takes no skill at all.

Um saying wow takes no skill when you probably didn't even get up to level 60. Try a PVP server.... O.o

And it actually takes alot of skill and brain power in end-game content in PVE 40man instances....

I don't get it either. An hour of any MMORPG bores me to tears, but to each his own, I guess. A lot of people probably don't like BF2 nearly as much as I do, and can't stand AOEIII.

I wouldn't say it dosen't take any skill, because those guys didn't get to level 60 or whatever by twiddling thier thumbs...

Ya, why pay $10+ per month for a crummy game? Watch the new South Park episode and you'll see how funny and stupid WoW can be. People with no life.

I find most MMO's rather pointless and "skillless" so to say. Just putting commands to your keyboard and pressing em when you need it, FPS's IMO take alot more skill, considering you cant just gain a few level's in those and own.

40man instances do take alot of skill at first. It requires 40 people that are willing to listen and work together, and thats what makes the game fun.

The game really doesnt start to shoot off until you get max level and get a good guild.

Or if your a PVPer, it still doesnt kick off until about level 60 unless your into twinking up low level characters..which is lame lol

It's a social system. It's about making friends online. Then, those friends either steal from you or backstab you (Just like real humans). Then you join a guild and the guild falls apart over petty differences and you are left hollow and alone. You might consider suicide or you might join another guild and start all over again.

So what are MMORPG's about? Simulating real life, because REAL disappointment is too difficult to deal with. It's easier to deal with failure when it's a "game".

OH! I'm sorry...was I talking out loud again?

When I watch my brother play WoW it just bores me, he has a level 60 puppet but there is nothing really interesting about it besides the fact that it can hit harder etc. After watching him play for like 30 minutes I'm really bored and leave him be. Personally I used to play Tibia (level 126)... or am going to play it again, but I mainly play to chat on it. That probably would be the fact with WoW as well.

One other thing about WoW is that t has a gazillion items and it's really confusing, you need to play it likes a few months non stop to really know all the items and such...
