I voted Aion because of the bugs and glitches, horrible crafting system, horrible enchanting system and general disappointment with the flying.

It looked too good to be true. Is it f2p yet?

Playable and hated is not the same thing. I hate WoW because I feel it ruined the MMORPG genre by turning it from a hardcore, free form, virtual world game to a linear, simple, single player ThemePark crap.

I am sure WoW is very playable, but that does not make me hate it less.

WOW didn't do that all by itself. "hardcore, free form, virtual world" is a niche that a minority of those who play MMORPGs enjoy. Some of us enjoy it so much that we spend countless hours here discussing better ways to achieve that and using fringe MMOs hardly anyone has ever heard off as examples. It's pretty clear from the buying patterns of the general MMORPG playing public that they're consuming what they want to play.

If you're going to blame WOW for anything blame it for creating a game with the mass appeal to surpass anything that had ever been seen before or since in this genre. They single-handedly created the mainstream MMORPG market and brought them into the realm of mainstream entertainment. They brought a lot of new people into the genre who had never played the MMOs that came before it.

To these "new" players (who aren't so new any longer... they are now the bulk of MMOers) these "hardcore, free form, virtual worlds" are just ancient quaint ideas. What they hear us saying is that in the good ole days we were "real players" because we walked all the way there and back in the snow and it was uphill both ways.

What Blizzard did was to begin adding lots of convenience factors and lots of guided story questing. And all of the new MMORPGS that can boast 1 million plus players even briefly just have variations on that theme with a few refinements. GW2, which will soon be proclaimed the 2012 MMORPG of the year here and elsewhere, adds even more convenience, not less. The auto-banking of crafting resources and listing items for sale or shopping while you're out in the middle of nowhere are examples of convenience taken to a level that is unheard off even in WOW. And their Dynamic Events are a just a new spin on guided story content.

My intent is not to berate you and I hope you don't take it that way. I'm just saying that hating the WOW themepark model and all of its clones for what they did to "real MMOs" makes about as much sense as hating automobiles for what they did to the horse and buggy.

I think wow does need to carry some of the blame because they lead the industry. Wow has a unique position of being the face of this genre and the actions of activision does have a trickle down effect on all other titles. Look at swtor they modeled themselves on wow because from an investment perspective they believed you could catch lightening in a bottle twice. They did not/could not. The point is when the leader does something "new" or adds a feature that their community enjoys other games follow suit take gw2 with ascended gear for example. The people behind wow have a responsibility to their customers and the community as a whole to take the industry in the right direction.

A complete 360?

Oh cmon a 360 is perfect for the game.

I like his style. Gamers will never expect it. I can hear the reaction now "hey guys the devs are changing things up big time the game will never be the same" then the 360 move "wtf this is the exact same game rabble rabble."
