You know, I've been a longtime WoW player. I've played Everquest 2, LOTRO, and Warhammer during that time. All those games seem pretty well done and I had fun with them, but I would never re-up my subscription. One thing in common with the competitors is that their animation styles all seem the same. I hear WoW's graphics referenced as "cartoony" but really its still the only different look and feel out there (that I've played). Also, whenever a new game has some really good innovations, WoW eventually adopts them. LOTRO's achievement system comes to mind for example. Accessability is still also huge. My computer, which was close to top of the line when I built it a little while before WoW's release is a little long in the tooth now. However even with the graphics updates of the two expansions, it still runs great. The other three I mentioned all had some problems. Everquest 2 was patched and runs great now (when I check it out when they give me free gametime and expansions). Overall it's a turnoff to getting my hooked in and away from WoW. Warhammer was horrible graphic wise at launch even on my newer computers. It was a lot of fun besides that but now it's just a memory. It did improve with patches but it's too late now.I would love to see a true WoW "killer." It would have to be one heck of a game to pull it off though. I really don't see it happening any time soon.
