Why I Hate World of WarcraftPosted: March 28, 2005
World of Warcraft is apparently the best online role-playing game out there. Its sales are through the roof, and the demand is overwhelming. All of which are reasons why I HATE this game.
Honestly, I'm not about to spend $15 a month and countless hours “leveling up” my alter ego by killing bunnies. It just doesn't interest me that much. What I do like to do is play the single player Warcraft and Starcraft games. But since WoW is such a cash cow for Blizzard Software, it's in their best interest to keep producing online games, probably at the expense of the single player games that I love. I'm not sure this is how it's going to play out, but why would Blizzard spend time and money developing a game that sells for a one-time price of $50 when they can develop a game that sells just as many copies for the same $50 plus $15 a month? It would be crazy of them not to! Oh well…
