Ah, the old McDonalds argument. It works if WoW cost much less and offered less quality to get those high numbers.

 

However, WoW costs just as much (if not more) as other MMO's and still is king. Do people choose McDonalds over a juicy steak? No. They choose the better meal. i.e. WoW is the Steak "For Most People". Obviously there are different tastes. That's why there are more games available then just WoW.

 

I know I won't change your opinion, but at least I took a shot at showing how stupid the McDonalds argument is.

The analogy is not stupid, your view is just simplistic. Why are you only looking at price? The point is that many different things go into a game's popularity, only ONE of which is quality. Comparing McDonald's relative price to WoW's relative price is, as I said before, simplistic. It's looking at one dimension when in fact there are many, which is the point of the analogy.

Yeah, most of them are.

 

It's not a weak analogy. It's basically saying that popularity doesn't necessarily equal quality. As others have pointed out, the details don't matter. It doesn't matter if there's a McDonald's on every corner. It doesn't matter if they put lsd in their burgers. The point is that there are factors other than quality that determine popularity.

About the closest comparison in this analogy would be this:

People like to eat at McDonald's because they want to. People play WoW because they want to.

Ugh. There is simply nothing wrong with the McDonald's analogy. It's meant to point out that popularity and quality don't necessarily go hand in hand. I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about this. 

The issue isn't as simple as quality vs popularity.

The issue is that when you try to make an analogy like this, it's likely to have more inconsistencies than similarities. It's the history of this beast around here. I've yet to see this particular comparison work well.

Because everyone knows McDonalds makes low quality food. Trying to say blizzard made a low quality game would be a much harder sell and comparing it to any other mmos and it's "quality" would be even harder.

That argument is being made because they can, not because it actually fits.

What "issue" isn't as simple as that? People bring up the McDonald's analogy when somebody tries to use WoW's popularity as a measure of quality. In that case the issue is as simple as quality vs popularity.

Almost as stupid as 100 million have played a game = the best ever.  BTW World of Tanks claims 60 million players in 1/5 of the time it took WoW to get 100 million so WoT MUST be better using your logic.

I've never seen a fast food/MMORPG analogy that wasn't so full of holes, that it made more questions than it answered.

Two reasons WoW is the best:

Very smooth engaging gameplay, in every facet.

Failure of every other game to adequately replicate the first reason.

Fits what exactly? What it's supposed to do is show that revenue/popularity isn't always a good measure of quality. It does that.

His point assumes WoW is quality and has a higher operating cost than McDonalds.

 

BTW: World of Tanks is the new king with the 60 million players in 1/5 of the time.

Never said anything about quality, nor anything about how much money WOW makes(neither does the link). Perhaps reading comprehension is in order.  Thanks though for the input!

You mean one of the most boring infographics ever released?

League of Legends is by far the biggest PC game even over World of Tanks... but everyone who has any taste knows that DoTA2 is by far the better game.

WoW ... is just a pinnata spank with a little island for dalies trying desperatly to copy concepts from other games in pitiful ways to catch up. the only worthwhile content is STILL raids ... which except heroic are now an absoulte joke.

Cata and Panda were so mediocre even the critics no longer lick its A$$.

Cost to play. Money paid by the player. Subscriptions. Box purchases.  Not operating cost.

Bottom line: Wow is a good game. It's always been a good game. With the release of WoD it will continue to be a good game.

Someone asked "What if every MMO gamer voted, not just forum readers."  We already do. We vote with our wallets.

Because they do all in better way, more professional, more polished,  many innovative additions to genre, ....  And to think started only after BC because did not like at start cartoonish style. But soon after started to play, maybe even after first or two hours, started to love it and appreciate overall quality of gaming (and after played Gw1, Lotro,....). Light years above others.

So, I take it the lesson some are teaching us is:

 

If it's popular, it must suck. Ya, no holes in that logic.

No, popularity does not guarantee quality, but it sure as hell doesn't preclude it.
