”New World could well become the new gold standard for MMO combat"

    This is why I really don't want companies like Amazon involved in gaming....We have seen Blizzard do teh same thing....Pay enough people/companies to say your game is great and soon the sheep will believe it.
    Or you are just another zealot who is wrong and the game is actually great ?
    That's true for WoW for 15+ years now...
    It shows great maturity calling people who enjoy a game you don't like "sheep".

    Games that take skill at combat rather than just turn or tab based will always have more longetivity, just look at counter strike.

    Revolutionary new combat! I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard that phrase in a new video game.......

    True Action Combat:

    Well I like to go boxing on the week end, well, I just kinda screw around in the gym and pretend I am doing something, anyway, so I get in the ring with my friend, after banging his sister, which unbeknownst to me, he found about about just short 3 years prior and still have no clue, even tho we are married and expecting our first kid, it's all very new to him.

    Anyway, I take a solid left jab, and he counters with a massive left handed uppercut, thankfully, I was able to cancel the animation and engage a block.

    Well.. No.. this was real life, I was not able to do that, but if I had a controller in my hand, I would have been able to, instead, I had my real hand flopping in the air as my ass, and the rest of me hit the canvas.
    Egotism is the anesthetic that dullens the pain of stupidity, this is why when I try to beat my head against the stupidity of other people, I only hurt myself.

    I'm doubtful there will ever be a gold standard again.  If you're a regular on these threads you'll see that too many are vested in tearing down games.  In fact to many seem to enjoy and get a certain pleasure by tearing them down and, in fact, seeing games fail.

    It's no different with new world. See how many uplifting comments verses opposite comments.  I personally am looking forward to it and hope it does well.

    I self identify as a monkey.

    I'm hoping it is good.  I think it maybe the first MMO I dive into and last for a while in a long time.

    I've tried reliving the golden years in game and  can't seem to stay with it.  Got a few old gaming mates excited too.

    I've said it before:  Make an expansion each year and a quarterly update with a new dungeon/zone for 3-4 years to make enough content to pull others away.  Then again maybe it is all a moot point and all people care about is a grind treadmill over and over again.
