I never understood how WoW was so popular, I downloaded the demo and got to level 25 in the 10 days I had. Seems like it takes months just to get to level 70 (Supposed level where all the fun stuff starts) but when you get there you need a strong guild or clan or whatever and you need 10 people online for 5 hours straight till like 3am beating some unbeatable boss just to hope for some super duper item that you can show off to the rest of your groupies in your guild or clan or whatever.
Yeah you can guess I'm not a MMO guy. FPS and RTS all the way! Gimme CS Source or Starcraft over WoW any day.
I specialize in FPS and have been playing on PC ever since the original Wolfenstein (have been playing online competitively ever since Quake 2). After all that time, you could probably say I'm pretty good.
Anyway, the whole grouping aspect of WoW isn't my favorite part either. I solo most of the time and just enjoy exploring the world and building my character. I doubt very seriously, I'll ever get to level 70. I played a warrior before when the game first came out and quit at level 50 because I couldn't solo anymore. I'm not really into it enough to join a guild, and after level 50 (as a warrior at least), it really became old having to look for groups all the time. It's a nice break from COD4, and in another 10-15 levels, I'll probably get bored with it again and go back to shooters. I got Crysis for Christmas and haven't even opened it yet... after building a new computer so I could play it. No BS.
