I said "borderline embarrassing", which they are.
There are graphics and lighting effects in games 5+ years ago that are superior to what you see in wow today.
Doe the most part its because the map is so huge that it would be very difficult to make the graphics nice, and because they never bothered to fix old models and textures on old items.
Like I said, thats not the point
. You dont play wow for the graphics, you play for the mmo gameplay. The same goes for 1.6, the graphics are terrible compared to Source and other more recent FPS games, but 1.6 still has a particular feel that many people think is still unmatched.
To this day they are still playing 1.6 in tournament events.
In 12 years I really doubt youll be able to say that about any COD game, no matter how nice the graphics are.
