    Despite the many cries"  We don't want WoW type games anymore" , obviously we still do.  This game is taking off and has many players loving it.

    Everyone, who has actually played, is really enjoying the game. Including myself.

    Other then Art style and tiered loot system the game is very different then WoW. Other then the fact that when you play Wildstar it does not take long to get there is quality here.

    This game is shockingly good. Way better than I expected . Of course if you don't like MMOs than you won't like it.

    Im enjoying the game except for the part that their tough security system with IP addresses has  forced me to spend more time trying to fix the issue and deal with it than play.

    Any help on this would be useful. Does using that google autheticator make it better to play without these IP issues?

    some 16 months of content updates are already planned out, from story and lore updates to new dungeons and raids.

    sounds great - hope they are all monthly updates

    I look forward to hearing about what's in store. After 16 updates we should be ready for an expansion. I'm level 14 so I have a ways to go before I get there.

    Yes because nothing says I'm an adult like the testimony one can claim from playing dark dungeon video games. :-O

    i know gamers dont obey min age

    but any mmo is supposed to be for 13 and up

     

    the same 60 year old views ALL video games as kiddie stuff

    And for someone who said he's gonna play so he can say pew pew pew like an 8 yr old....

    8 yr olds say brap brap these days mate.

    Kiddies game. For adults who are into kiddy humour.

    Not for me. - bring on the dark dungeons

     

    I'd love to see a group of 8 year olds run the first level 20 dungeon :-)

    Yes we know...dark dungeons...pandas...goblins...gnomes...taurens...pets...pet battles...yes very uncommon...very new...very adult things indeed.

    Just for the record, I m 41 having 2 sons and i m enjoying WS with the older one (10 years old).  Gameplay and content quality / quantity is my main focus when it comes to mmo's and WS dominates in both aspects.

    to clarify

    I'm 52 - i love animation and videogames and much more

    but ive met other people my age that associate all of it as kids stuff

     

    different strokes for different folks

    what makes RIFT a mature game?  

    RIFT has the same TEEN rating as Wildstar

  • FlyByKnightFlyByKnight Member EpicPosts: 3,835

    As a person who played Wildstar throughout the betas, I can say the graphics are the least childish and obnoxious thing about the game.  When they called it an "unapologetic theme park" it was an understatement.  The game almost plays like it's a parody or satire of everything wrong with the genre.

     

    If you can tolerate that, you can tolerate this game.  I couldn't.

    Raging Demons for all flowchart "Kens". This is a metaphor.

    This is a game made by WoW fanboys, for WoW fanboys. If all you ever want in a MMO is for it to be exactly like WoW but with cone and triangle combat instead of real visceral action, then this game is for you.

    It's as if the devs spent years developing a perfect scifi WoW clone without a single original thought of their own. No risks were taken, no new ideas explored.

    Speak for yourself. Everyone has played this game. They were giving beta keys for months. They even gave reminders "beta is still open come play!" A lot of people found out it was a "been there done that" type of game and chose to pass, including myself.
