I didn't read all the comments, so I apologize if this has already been said...I think the reason WoW does so well is that besides being a game with enough different elements to keep a player busy for years, it was created by a group of game developers that are dedicated story tellers. WoW was able to stand on the shoulders of the RTS Warcraft games, and Warcraft 3 which had bonus missions that were extremely close to what WoW would be.Despite the horrible grindfest that WoW can be, no other game is as interesting to play because they are trying to create game mechanics, and then justify them with some kind of plot. The story has to come first.I think when it comes down to it, the only company that will top Blizzard is Blizzard. I pray for the day that they announce a StarCraft MMO. Imagine running around a Zerg home city. Epic. I hope that is what StarCraft 2 will lead into.
