This panel blew me away. You really get a feel for the hard work and dedication the team puts in. You can FEEL the excitement and love they pour into their work, and that's made me appreciate this even more than I did originally (and I've been awestruck since it was announced).I can't imagine watching that panel and then criticizing WoW for being lazy or out of ideas. These people are brimming with creativity and love for the content, and I think that really shows through in the world they create. Every rock and texture and tree was placed with care and I think you can feel it.

That's what blew me away about WOW back in 2004. Every MMO had very sterile world environments compared to the action games of the day. If you wanted an interesting world to look at, you had to be confined to a single road or path in an action RPG that offered an illusion of a vista that was painted on a skybox. I wish WOW got more credit for this, but people seem blinded by the simple shapes and low polygons, ignoring how even through the trees and bushes were simplistic, each and every one was individually placed in the world with care and an eye for composition and space that made every part of the world feel like a real scene from an illustration.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again to anyone who will listen:World of Warcraft is the most beautiful game available today. It's like walking around in an Impressionist gallery.
