I used to hate WOW, a lot... that was before I even played it.
When a friend asked me to fill in for him during scheduled raids when he was busy, I started liking it, Its a fun game if your a hardcore rpg'er. I quit the game after about 3 years, it wasn't a forced quit. I still love the game, just got over the day/night grinding.

So IMO all the hate here is just fact-less bias.. different people have different tastes. Me, I hate sports games, I cant understand someone staying home and playing football with a controller, get outside and go kick a ball ffs.

I used to play WoW. Didn't think it was the new crack either. Stopped playing when it got gay, when it turned into world of gayexpansioncraft.

So very, very true.

WoW doesn't feel "10 years ago" at all.
MMO's have to attract as many players as possible to keep a large user base.
There's no reason to make the game run on 6990's and alienate 99% of computer users.
And, IMO, Blizzards art direction is really top notch. I feel bad that it's all about hardware for some people. I love system building, but I also love games.

We build these big expensive systems to play games that don't look like a playstation 2 game. So of course we're going to have higher standards.

MMOs are not RPGs, no matter what they tell you.

do not ever refer to someone who spends their time in mmos, someone who likes RPGs.

age of conan sold more than 5 million copies, not sure what they are up to now, but, that means atleast 5 million people have computers capable of handling a pretty graphically intensive mmo game.

The idea that The market is to small for PC to sell lots of games is laughable.

But you have to remember that some of the haters, such as myself, have tried WoW, and that didn't change opinions.

Agree with you on the sports game thing, though.
