I'm shocked that some people are into this game, it looks like WoW in space, except, I think WoW has better graphics... I'm surprised a company can still get a decent rating from releasing such crap even in 2013. What do people see in this game, really?

Better graphics in what way? Care to quantify that statement? Preferably with examples.

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

I used to think the same thing, until I actually started looking into the game.  It has some simply amazing ideas to anyone who is a fan of Sanbox games; it's kind've an introduction to Sandbox MMOs for those who haven't played one, as it has a lot of themepark elements as well.

Give it some ample research and you'll see why it's so popular.   :D

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

You're subjective, to say at least.

I am too subjective, in saying that nothing makes WoW look good.

I think the cartoony grafics are much more detailed than that of wow and swtor.

Having said so...

Are you really that shallow that you will not play a game because you don't like its grafics?

I think the graphics, on a technical level, are superior to World of Warcraft's. I also think the styles are somewhat similar, but that is fine - that style is popular for a reason. Unfortunately it is going to get a lot of "WoW clone" comments due to that.

I am not a huge fan of the textures and how muted everything looks. I do not know even how to describe it, but even though they use a lot of colours, everything seems flat and blends together. It looks pretty enough, but it is not my thing.

One thing I do like is the attitude and comedy of the game; Carbine is doing well giving the characters, well, character. If I were not done with the PvE theme park thing, this would be something I'd be salivating over because it looks like it is being developed with a lot of love and time, and should end up being a pretty polished adventure.

So wait, your bash at people downvoting CU in hype for a game showing virtually nothing by voting low while you votes 10/10 (which I'm sure you voted this game a 1/10) then you come here degrading another game and insulting it without any real rhyme or reason?

 

Your going down a slipper slope of hypocricy thats for sure.  You can't attack one game and then claim its 'unfair' when someone does it to the one you support. Thats hogwash

Seems like someone was bored, looked at half a screen shot and decided to make a new awesome and entertaining thread. I personally am really looking forward to getting my hands on Wildstar and judging for myself.

Oh... yeah. Way too transparent.

Lets see, how do we counter his propaganda? Everyone! Drop a 10 on Wildstar and a 1 on Camelot!

 

It's time to start a hateful thread in the Camelot section and a thread that asks for people to give 10s to Wildstar in the Wildstar section. Nah, that would be really lame. 

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

One or 2 solid answers, out of the lot, thanks guys. Anyways, yea, I get the sandbox thing, I to love a good sandbox... But man, I do seriously think WoW has better graphix, but that's just me. I highly doubt it has better gameplay (what does, really?). Still, I'm surprised game developers can produce something with this level of graphics and still have a bunch of fans... I guess there are people really like the super-stylized graphics. What can you say...

Man, lotta haters in here. A man can't ask a question? Geez. Thanks to the few people who gave reasonable answers. lol

I didn't read a single "hater" replying. You simply word your "question" so incredible negative and trolly while totally rooting for a game you know nothing of and expect that nobody will feel like you are just trying to bash the game? Honestly, watch one video in hd and compare it to wow and you will find your point non-existant.

Lol, wait, you are calling people haters when you start with, and this is a direct quote:

'I'm shocked that some people are into this game, it looks like WoW in space, except, I think WoW has better graphics... I'm surprised a company can still get a decent rating from releasing such crap even in 2013. What do people see in this game, really?'

Really?  You are calling people haters when the first thing you do is bash not one but TWO games?  This is what we call being a bigot.  You sir, are a bigot.

Good graphics doesn't necessarily mean better game. Take TF2 for example - millions of players with those great player models. It doesn't have the super smoke explosion effects from BF3 because it simply doesn't need it. 

TF2 beats the hell out of oh...all modern military shooters. And it didn't need graphics to make it better. In fact initially tf2 was designed with 'realistic' player models and they found that nobody could tell each other apart. So they went with very unique silhouettes which can instantly be recognized.

The most important thing in a game is gameplay. If you want pretty models play Scarlet Blade, my character is sooo damn fine in that. 

And proof that graphics aren't everything:

FTL

Gratuitous space battles

Starcraft 1

Any popular mobile game

As a game programming student the idea that they use style and simple models so that they can work on making great content instead of eye candy is appealing. I don't care about seeing each individual hair on a monster with terrible WoW combat, I would rather see 8bit stuff which has great mechanics.

On a final note Super Adventure Box must be mentioned. Except for the people who hate jumping puzzles and have no sense of fun it is in my mind the best April Fools content of all time. Not hyperbole. 8bit in my MMO? Hells to the yes

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

I used to play TFC, from pretty much the time it first came out, and that had pretty damn realistic graphix for back in '96, and I had no trouble at all telling people apart. I wanted to playTF2, but couldn't get past the ridiculous stylized graphics there either, but I agree that gameply>graphix... to a point. Over-stylized graphix just irk me to no end... I want them to at least TRY to make their graphics look good.

I think I see what you mean :P Good graphics take time is all. It doesn't come cheap either. Starcraft 2 cost from 150-300 million dollars to make. I hope you think that they are good graphics :P

Mass Effect - droooool

Just a matter of taste really. I enjoy being silly as much as I enjoy killing a boss that takes 5 hours. Graphics just rank low on my scale.

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

Ok you know i am usually against the whole 'WOW clone' term because people use it even when it doesn't apply...but for first time i think it is actually fair to use this term in regards with WIldstar.

I swear when i first saw Wildstar video i thought i was watching WOW gameplay video in barrens. That is how much identical it is.
