Originally posted by Beelzebobbie I wouldn't say that WOW is the best mmo on the market but I will say this, the game has been around for a looooooooong time and it's still doing great. If you are a player who loves to raid then there really isn't anyother game close to the king. I hate Blizzard for being so greedy but I also salute them for making the greatest mmo that will ever set it's foot on this planet. Today I feel that the graphics are dated and I never enjoyed raiding like most people do so it's not really a game for me but that didn't stop blizzard from excepting my money for over 3 years while I played everyday So my hats of to the creators of this magnificant game.
Just the sentence highlighted in red. Even though I am a WOW fan and love WOW raids. I used to be a heavy raider for multiple mmos. The Original Everquest still has the best raid content of any mmorpg on the market.

oh, i also liked this one lol
Except these days WoW is the most costly MMORPG to play.
It is like go eating in a restaurant at 180 dollars while the rest of the offers is giving away meals for free at some suspicious food bar down town.
These days WoW is more like the most expensive restaurant in the world and STILL serving 7 million more people each day ...
Makes you think about the terrible quality of food in the free meals establishments.
Actually this argument by WoW hating trolls now turned against them with all that free garbage out and STILL not having decent multi million consumers.
If there is ANYTHING showing some proof how good WoW really is, it is this very simple fact: even in a rather expensive setting WoW is played far more than free to play copycats.

WoW is the 5 stars restaurant these days as 7.5 million PAY to just get a meal while the others are the fast food bars giving free meals at a rather stinky self service bar.
That's a reality. Accept to live with it if you still visit these bars.
For years elitists thought they had an argument, but now that argument turned clearly against them.
It shows how subpar that competition REALLY was,..
It is proof that WoW stands miles above these free to play unpolished things. WTF: you ask 180 dollars to play and STILL beat the competition by many, many millions...
And ... how long can you stay open by distributing free meals in a costly enterprise ? Ask Warhammer, Vanguard and a few dozen others ....
So these "things" display free meals but you have to pay to get a fork, a spoon, a napkin, a chair and a decent table ...:). And of course these tools are microscopic, expect to upgrade them all of the time... before even starting to eat properly ...No wonder why WoW is the best.

Yeah, you made your point, millions go to McDonald's (WoW) and millions go to homeless shelters to get free meals (Perfect World), that's fine. Eating Big Macs or cheese burgers is okay, do it, I dont care, if you are happy good for you, millions are happy to eat cheeseburgers, it's not my job to tell them they should do something else and I'm not telling. Like I said, I simply just dont like the greatest food in the world which is burgers, I'm pretty sure I have the rigth not to like burgers if I prefer steak or whatever

Your analogy is terrible because there is no game more expensive than WoW. It would work if there was some amazing mmo out there that costs $30+ a month to subscribe, but there isn't. If we compared restaurants to mmos, it would be like the most expensive restaurant in the world also sold the most food.
When I think of WoW I think of Nike, Apple products,Samsung Galaxy whatever , video game consoles.
People make crappy products popular...and once the product gets popular the companies take the cash and use it to better or expand their products.
Often times they turn those crappy products into something better because they where one of the lucky ones to get noticed.
So much time and money has been thrown at WoW by blizzard, of course it's the king of the mmorpg genre...but all king's reigns come to an end at some point.
There was a TV show I loved so much called Sliders..It's the main thing that got me thinking about alternate possibilities and parallel worlds. I often wonder,what if Albert Einstein was killed by the Nazi's in WW2..the world would be such a different place.
Imagine WoW never got created..Maybe a previously released mmorpg would of grew to be as popular as wow or maybe it would be years later when a game came along to make mmorpg's super popular.
But It's likely something else would of been "world of Warcraft".
Everquest and Ultima Online laid the ground work for the MMORPG genre to blow up..it was just a matter of time..if it wasn't wow it probably would of been something else.
It also makes me think...if wow never existed...maybe the genre would of advanced and not have been stalled by companies trying to clone wow..maybe games like Matrix Online would of had a chance and maybe Sony wouldn't of ruined Starwars Galaxies in 2005 with NGE.

But that is fine, because we all know that people link WoW and McDonald's not because of the price, but because of the nature of the experience you get.

Originally posted by DamonVile What do you think would happen if every mmo gamer voted right now...not just people who happen to read forums. If the best isn't decided by the most popular what arbitrary conditions do decide it ?
Exposure? More people having played/heard of something doesn't make it the best at anything. IN most products actually the best is quite often the most expensive option, yet it wouldn't be voted so due to lack of massive exposure as it's typically too expensive for that. Many view Les-paul as the best guitar, mostly due to exposure, it can be affordable. However there are more finely crafted instruments than that, they're just out of most peoples financial reach.

I think future MMOs should involve Oculus Rift.
As such, I expect WoW to become less popular.
I'm looking forward to Elite: Dangerous' release, roughly this September.
It's worth understanding that WoW's impressive figures are mostly due to how WoW was pre-2008. I know that my Fire Mage will never be the same again, so I've moved on from WoW.

So before the future of mmos can be some VR stuff we are going to need to see some quality single player VR stuff . So since we don't have any VR single player stuff that's readily available the future of mmos is not VR. I see VR in video games going the way of the 3D tv. Sure it's cool every now and then but it will never be the main way we watch tv or play video games...at least for the foreseeable future.

Originally posted by funyahns Commercial success does not equate to best quality. Now WoW is a good mmo but trying to say because it makes X amount of money means it is better than anyone else is wrong.
So making the most money while your competition fades and goes f2p is not a sign you're better? Amazing logic...
What if...McDonalds actually made you lose weight when you ate it? whoa!
White Castle does, the morning after.

Better? Better at what? Better is quite a subjective word.

I find it funny that people hate all over WoW on the internet, but when a site offers a beta key, it nearly crashes the server...never seen mmorpg.com be so slow like it was earlier, and they offer beta keys to pretty much any game that's come out as long as I've been here...
None, there is no universally accepted best "videogame"... There will never be, it's like asking who's the best band...Far too subjective to quantify..
