A Massively commenter weeks ago wrote that World of Warcraft
has the most content out of any MMO, full-stop, and everyone around him seemed to take that at face value, which astonished me. Look, I'm subbing to WoW
even as I type this, and I think WoW
has gobs more systems than some people give it credit for, but the most
content of any MMO? Not a chance!
Even if we discount wide-open, pure sandboxes -- which, depending on whom you ask, have either no content or infinite content -- we'd still have to factor in sandparks and classic MMOs that have 20 expansions
, more updates than WoW per year
, multiple expansions per year
, and so many systems and zones that it's just flat out overwhelming
. There are a dozen MMOs that intimidate people with how much stuff
they pack in. You'd never finish them. By comparison, WoW
is a mere snack -- an awesome, polished snack, but a snack all the same.
I don't know which MMO has the "most" content, but I'm pretty sure WoW
wouldn't make even the inevitable top 10 list. What about you other folks who've been around the MMO block a time or two? Which MMO has the most content?
