To claim that WoW isn't successful is just ludicrous. WoW is successful to the degree that it's kind of turned the whole gaming industry on its side. Even games that aren't MMOs have to compete with it, because their game has to be good enough for the WoW-heads to set aside raid time to go play it. It's quite the thing.

Now, if one were comparing success with quality or innovation, there's plenty of room for debate.

Where do these people keep coming from? Is this a new sport or something? Are they THAT desperate for attention? I don't play WoW and haven't for a year but let's be frank: if ANY of these chuckleheads were as smart as they claim to be then why don't THEY create a juggernaut as successful as WoW?

I am thankful that Massively posts this stuff. It reaffirms how unbelievably retarded the industry can be and why Blizzard has been and will continue to be the top dog. No, not because they are perfect, far from it. Blizzard is #1 because they don't spend their time smoking crack and then pontificating how easy it all is when they haven't really done shit. Blizzard released a decent product and supported it vigorously...two things that most MMO developers absolutely refuse to do.

I DON'T love Blizzard. I DO hate paint huffing morons that refuse to acknowledge how poor most MMO offerings are. The most important step towards recovery is acceptance. Accept that the industry as whole sucks Craig and you're part of the problem.

I have money in hand jackass. Where's an MMO better than WoW? No? Nothing? Cat got your tongue?

Exactly what Lemmo said... WoW was the ultimate MMO game changer. Before WoW, MMO was a word for industry insiders and humongous geeks. Now almost everyone and their mommas know what WoW is.And all things at the top of their field have haters...I'm just surprised someone from as successful an internet venture as Gaia would feel like they have to bash WoW!

WoW is not only a huge financial success, but has become a cultural phenomeonon.

This guy Craig Sherman is a joke.

That guy is nuts!! I am sure that he would not be saying that if he had the cash Blizzard does. What does he expect to get every kid in the country playing a game?
