    Kyleran:  "Now there's the real trick, learning to accept and enjoy a game for what it offers rather than pass on what might be a great playing experience because it lacks a few features you prefer."

    John Henry Newman: "A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault."

    FreddyNoNose:  "A good game needs no defense; a bad game has no defense." "Easily digested content is just as easily forgotten."

    LacedOpium: "So the question that begs to be asked is, if you are not interested in the game mechanics that define the MMORPG genre, then why are you playing an MMORPG?"

    Just because a term gets used a lot does not mean it is invalid, but many are overused to be sure. You will find them in reviews as easily as our posts. I got this one from the last review I looked at on here:

    "unique features"

    Every MMO released has to have one or more of those. :)

     25 Agrees

    You received 25 Agrees. You're posting some good content. Great!

    GW2 - It's appeared in almost every thread for the past month.

    “There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.”

    Retracted, can't lead anywhere good.  Doh too late.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    Hunter S Thompson - Him too.  No offense, nothin' against HST, but haven't you ever read any other authors?

    There are other authors?  Non-sense.
