Are you looking to pick up a new MMO but not sure which one to try? Or perhaps you're one of those people that simply doesn't get all the hullabaloo surrounding World of Warcraft.
If you happen to be just this type of person, then Howstuffworks
has the article for you. "How World of Warcraft Works
" looks into the game from an outsider's perspective, and gives a brilliant overview of nearly every aspect of the game.
From player base to the guts behind the game, the article goes over the parts of the WoW
phenomenon, including several references to our beloved NickYee of the Daedalus Project
and his demographic research on WoW
players. Granted a lot of the information may be basic, but I found that even as an avid WoW
fan I learned some things I didn't know, or had at least temporarily forgotten. And really, it's great to see so much information about the game condensed into its simplest form.
