It seems like a small minority of forum posters are working themselves up into frenzy over the impending announcement of EQ Next. I honestly haven't seen so much excitement over a game, ever. Considering that only a select few of journalist have seen a few bits and pieces, that quite an accomplishment. Although there has been one or two leaks, by in large we (the MMO gamer) remain mostly ignorant about the game and are instead, like hungry peasants after a ball, relying on little tidbits that SOE throw at us. However, the aforementioned minority seem to grab these bits and pieces of information and fill the gaps with an idealized version of a game.
I may be old and cynical, therefore I cannot get excited over a MMO based on pure speculation. Yes, it a sandbox, but so what? Not all sandbox games turn out great. Yes it's free to play, but so are a lot of games on facebook. But in honor of the hyperbole that is EQNext, I have made a little poll. I urge you all to calm down a bit, be realistic and vote Oba.. with your conscience.
