WoW vs SWTOR.. really? I mean honestly, I stopped even thinking about WoW some 2-3 years ago.

@real65rcncom because people who played a game for 3 years plus have a lot to say on the topic.

@drunkingamebar Exactly... I never think about the game, but when the name pops up I can certainly talk hours about it...and why I hate it...

Considering the title of the article is WoW vs SWTOR. It's not really a stretch that I would think about WoW and possibly comment on it. Thanks Capt. Obvious.

Friendly trash talk rendered in a Christmas classic aside, I'll play whichever of the two games I feel like (if either) and be glad there's no cross game chat. :)

Yeah, the barrens chat is legendary for a reason. I was pretty wrapped in my class story playing the Star Wars beta so I did not really pay much attention to chat. I am sure that there will be at some trash talkers in the real game thou.

I stopped thinking about WoW after 4.2...
I stopped thinking about SWTOR the day it was announced.
OUCH!

Many people talk about games dying, games killing other games, etc, etc, but this video gave me a feeling of harmony among games.

I wish, since there are 12 days in the song, that a third game was added -- RIFT. Just like SWTOR and WoW, I don't see the game going anywhere and it's AAA quality just like the others.

@Fakeassname : you want some Alganon? Look at SW:TOR's talent trees. They're as blatant a copy of WoW as anything Alganon did (right down to cloning it to the tiniest detail, and then turning the tree upside down in the hope we wouldn't notice it)

that's kinda my point: all three are crappy games IMO so having them all trash talk each other would be a riot.

much in the same way as watching rap battle between a bunch of wannabes with no flow.

@Fakeassname If an MMO isn't a sandbox that reaches high expectations it's crap in the MMO market? =/

@KvanCetre - there's talent trees.. and then there are talent trees where each class has three trees, each of them with tiers that you need to invest 5 points in to access the next tier, seven tiers deep so the capstone talents require 30 points invested in the tree, with most talents being 3-5 points, but with the 11, 21 and 31 point rows each containing a talent that only costs a single point but adds a new ability rather than modifying an existing ability or stat, with that 31-point talent being the only one on the 31 point row.

Sounds familiar? That's a description of WoW 1.0, Alganon and SW:TOR. You can try to handwave it away with glib crap like "Holy crap - an mmo with talent trees?! Next you'll tell me there are dungeons and raids!" but you're being deliberately disingenuous if you do.
