The engine it self is very flexible from ultra low end PC's to all the way to the high end PC's.
stop making it sound like every other game is worthless.

I'd rather give CCP my money for an EVE expansion or World of Darkness, and Bioware.
You play EVE and say WoW is a bad MMO? That is just ridiculous. EVE is a tool for OCD people to stare at numbers all day long, not a game. For those looking for an actual entertaining experience with a variety of gameplay options, WoW is a vastly superior MMO to ANYTHING else out there. And I say that with full confidence having played every supposed "WoW-killer" to be released since November 2004, all of which were horribly boring and are all almost dead or free to play. What drives your "anti-WoW" ideology exactly? I never really understand that mindset. Popular = BAD seems to be the sentiment. Do you take pride in telling all your friends what inaccessible and obscure bands you like to listen to?

And how Starcraft 2 has anything to do with an MMO is beyond me.

How did he say that exactly? It's a fact that Blizzard has higher standards than most game studios, and their success is a result of that. That doesn't mean there aren't a lot of great developers out there.

SC2 is GOTY for me. I bet it wins it.

I am not sure SCII would win GOTY because it is an RTS. But I would expect to take the RTS GOTY though. However, if it does take GOTY in general, I wouldn't be surprised.

Not really. Crysis never won any Game of the Years I know. It's been Deus Ex, Call of Duties, Battlefields, Wolf Quests, Mass Effects.

SC2, definite GOTY Candidate. It had an ungodly amount of hype and it delivered.

Ok where do i start with this..

*Firstly - WoW looks like an asscake, the gfx look like my 2 year old daughter drew them. I could make better gfx with some blocks of cheese from the kitchen fridge.
*Secondly Blizzard tried to steal the IP of Gamesworkshop's popular Warhammer series.
*Third - It's featurelist is a rehashed mess of stolen ideas from every other MMO, there is nothing innovative about WoW.
*Fourth - The community that plays wow is a bunch of babbling ADD preteens who wouldn't know a good MMO if it smacked them upside the head.
*Fifth - EQ was and always will be leagues ahead of any blizzard MMO.
*Sixth - I didn't say StarCraft was a MMO, maybe you misread my post, i said i refused to support the developers of said tripe MMO, and any subsequent games.
*Seventh - The amount of people playing does not make a good game, if it did Farmville would be a good game.
*Eighth - Blizzard always makes good games? lol starcraft ghost anyone?
*Lastly, yes EVE is much better than wow, wow is for kids without brains who want to be guided on rails around a themepark where it rains phat lewts


So in Closing - if your a pimply bearded ADD kid with the attention span of a gnat then yes wow is for you.

I'll go play a good game now named Bad Company 2...
