Best Game Ever

It has excellent graphics and physics; water ripples and splashes when you run through a stream, and blood ends up on the camera when you behead an oncoming horseman with your axe. Charging up another attack, you turn around and swing it again to behead a ninja (who is spinning several knives and throwing ninja stars), but instead the neck of the axe hits the guy straight in the face, and leaving a thick trail of blood suspended in the air for a moment, he falls over with severe head trauma. Some guy comes out of nowhere, and you're barely able to knock his sword out of the way before he disarms you, tackles you to the floor, and proceeds to repeatedly sock you in the face. You put on your invisibility ring, and hold down the spacebar to slip out from under him while he can't see you. You stop a moment to survey the battlefield... Your axe is gone. About half of the 200 or 300 people originally in this battle are dead, and the remainder are locked in epic combat. So many bodies to loot, yet so few who are confident enough to bring valuable gear to a gruesome battle, and then die within the first half. You loot a dead mage wearing some shiny looking gear, and see that he possessed many potions and scrolls. Right there on the spot, you learn 3 spells, drink 5 potions, pull out a staff, and blast a new asshole in this battlefield; Dark clouds coalesce over the scene, and massive ice shards and lightning decimate the enemy team, killing about 10 and wounding everyone else. But the domination doesn't end there... You still have more scrolls. You shoot flames from your staff onto 3 people. The first two fall to the floor and burn to death. The third, wearing a full suit of black armor, is completely unaffected despite being engulfed in flame for several seconds. You run out of mana, and he chops your face with a nasty looking polearm. Loading screen. You appear naked, 2 miles away, in a neighboring town. Go to the bank, get more armor and another mount, and head off to get your staff back.

You are level 3, and you bought this game today.

 

Oh, and there are thousands of fully voiced, immersive questlines, some of which are seasonal, temporary, new, or recently improved, but all of which are interconnected with a larger reality which is not influenced but governed by the playerbase.

    *wakes up and realizes it's just a dream*

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

    A lot of your emotions were based around looting cool stuff and being special. Stuff that everyone else will have too cause youre not the special super hero blasting holes in the battleground youre  one of the other hundreds of players. Follow the zerg pew pew.

    So you're saying that you've never in your life gone to a battle with a few hundred people in an mmorpg and gotten 15 or 20 kills before dying?

    The only difference in my game is that it involves less buttons and more mouse movement, it has great graphics and physics, there's full loot, and you can use any weapon, skill, or spell regardless of which class you chose (or created).
