> what compelled you to play again?TLDR: WoW is stateful and CoD4 is stateless.I have quit the game four times and come back each time because everything else has left me feeling empty. The lack of ongoing value and progress in non-mmo games makes them feel empty to me. Over time I can build my toon into something that is optimized and has a lasting value (until the next expansion). My rank in CoD4 is entirely meaningless but my collection of weapons from years of raiding isn't and tuning the balance of my gear, gems and spec is more engaging than most other video games.Also, I like Blizzard's boss fight mechanic design as much as the art style and overall world design. It all comes together in something that captures my imagination and compels me to come back and see it for myself.
