    It's unfortunate that Warhammer Online has so few population in the lower tiers beyond T1. T4 is a riot as ever though. Gotta love the regular violence that breaks out.

    However, Warhammer Online has very little to offer beyond RvR (which they do very well). One ends up having nothing to do beyond restocking on potions and other supplies during the offpeak hours.

    However, WoW is something like a 'city that never sleeps'. You will always have something to do even during offpeak hours. Not to mention it has everything. It's a generalist game, and so far, it has helped WoW out alot.

    Blizzard = former Games Workshop employees who got fired/left for trying to be creative thus they established Blizzard and created a better franchise imo. So technically some of Blizzard developed Warhammer back then.

    I was trying to say the games on this list are all the huge MMO botter games. There are so many programs that run the game for the players that the players don't even have to be home for their characters to play. Its the same tools the gold sellers use in all online MMOs but most of these long time players all use them too. So its no wonder that the biggest games that allow automated players - scripted players computer controlled - to endlessly run through quests and mount up faction money and quest rewards would top this list. All of the above I do not play because of all the botters in them and I will not sign on to a new game that has proven the GMs will not put blocks into stop them.

    Just for the record, MMOs don't usually have amazing PS3 graphics because they want as many people playing as possible. If it had the system requirements of Crysis, it wouldn't make enough money because not enough people would subscribe. However, practically anyone who has a computer today can play games with minimum requirements like WoW's.

    Better graphics would be nice, yes, but graphics can be too good for MMOs.

    "...Fastest selling PC Game of all time."

    To put that into perspective for Japan:

    "Yo Square Enix, I'm really happy for you, I'm going to let you finish, but Wrath of the Lich King was the FASTEST SELLING PC GAME OF ALL TIME!. OF ALL TIME!!!"

    I don't really care about graphics or shit, I usually play Tremulous, a FPS wich is ugly as hell. Although, I have also played WoW and I found it pretty entertaining, BUT I hated to hit 80. So I made 10 chars with different classes and hit 70> with all of them, then quit WoW.

    BTW I also enjoyed the auction house, I always loved that kind of things(selling/scaming, speculating with prices, etc). Also, I love exploration.

    WoW is more than raiding 24/7. I used to play it <2h and had a lot of fun.

    I think I'll play it again when Cataclysm hits, because It's going to change low level zones and stuff - more ways to leveling :D.

    OH, I played it for about a year, I also quit because of its really expensive price.

    Japaneese would rather play a shitty mmo made in japan than playing WOW. Same goes with video games in general.

    Japanese likes to play MMO with anime-esque looks and are grind-fests instead of an MMO that offers things you can do with and against other people as soon as possible.

    Given the choice of the level 80 cap of WoW which you can reach within about three months or the 'Jump straight to PVP even at level 1' of WAR or the 'Level up to max in a week and go kill someone' of Guild Wars or even the 'Be involved in all sorts of scoundrelly as soon as you log in' of EVE Online, they will still choose to grind out in their grindfest MMO, just because of the anime looks.

    Wrong! Japanese would rather play an MMO game made in KOREA than a Blizzard game.

    I liked it at the beginning, horde side, first to clear MC and BWL on our server. I think they ruined it when they gave alliance shamens and horde pallys, and especially with blood elves. I like my horde to be a bunch of ugly monsters.

    I know I'd be addicted to World of Warcraft if I subscribed because I used to be addicted to Ragnarok Online when I subscribed. I sunk so many hours into that game, missed playing so many ps2 and Xbox games because of all the time I spent playing RO.

    I play D&D Online for free. It's pretty fun. The graphics really impressed me. I support it with a cash shop purchase now and then.
    I stopped paying an MMO subscription fee a long time ago. Otherwise, I might play WoW.

    Nope, last earning reports made clear that it was still the goose laying the golden eggs, and that even with the current economic downturn it looks set to continue doing so for quite some time.

    i prefer to play MMOs that arent a grindfest chore. yeah , i know every MMO is a grindfest, but some are better than others in that regard. as for WoW it looks like all the other stereotypical medival games. not much in the way of character creation and every person looks fugly. muscly men must be warriors and few delicate women must be clerics. ugh. and i dont see why people opt to be human in game life either. i dont mean full furry and i don't mean human like things like dwarves or elves either, but it would be nice to do more costomization, even unnatural hair colors. Then again a lot of socially awkward pathetic people play WoW so it's what they hope to be, no?

    In WoW, I really hate the human look. I always choose to play Undead because I get to be skinny (which fits the rogue-ish look), pale (which makes my character unsettling to look at) and has CLAWS! And cannibalize! And Will of the Forsaken! And the ability to remain underwater for long periods of time! Yes! Now I can ambush anyone anywhere, even underwater, I can just relentlessly chase after warlocks and I look creepy what with all those black leather armor and the exposed bones!

    Oh god, I love being undead.

    I played WoW for quite a long time, quit more than a year ago. It was quite fun and enjoyable experience if you have the right company to play with, and when compared to other MMOs it's simply the best bang for your buck. No other MMO I played comes even close to the amount of spit and polish WoW has.

    But then again, it's not really about WoW as much as it's about Blizzard. Every game they made was a huge success and personally I look forward to StarCraft 2 and Diablo 3.

    It's the Blizzard brand. They always polish their games until they shine so bright you need to wear sunglasses to even glance at them.

    But of course, like all games, too much playing can burn you out, bore you or whatever. Happens to me. I stopped finding WoW interesting (especially the PVP, which has turned into a controlled environment thing instead of part of the greater world) after three years of playing and quit.

    From my observations, a lot of MMO players are actually really only playing MMOs as if they were chat programs with a game attached.

    But I must say, a lot of the hate comments directed at WoW are kinda funny. But this is Sankaku, and most of you lot would rather masturbate while pretending to date a DS girl. I don't think the WoW crowd would have anything kind to say about you either :)

    WOW is the best of paid MMORPGS thanks to it's casual gamer-friendly mechanics, as opposed to total suckage that is FFXI which features 18-hour boss. WOW can be played 2 hours daily so it wouldn't ruin your life with those grinding thing, WOW also has a bonus for resting.

    yeah, WoW is the killer of FFXI
    for many reason
    ffxi is a old mmorpg that you need play 16 hours everyday if you want "good experience"

    wow is easy to play but hard to dominate

    wow raids >>>> every endgame of ffxi

    "WoW is mostly dominated by the people usually not playing mmos or games - the general populace.

    How could they know how really good game graphics look? ^^;"

    That is a very stupid thing to say, shiny graphics does not a good game make.

    Somehow I'm not surprised Asia has the largest percentage of users. They only have 3.8 billion people living there.

    Maybe some Korean MMO's are having better graphics than WOW but WOW are more user friendly, and having so many worldwide players, while korean MMO (like Lineage or Aion) are localized and free (with some paid service for better playing) to save funds. I'd say that WOW is the best, of paid MMORPG. Final Fantasy XI sucks and you suck for liking FFXI!

    Lich King isn't the fastest selling PC game of all time.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, a game that is priced double of the expansion, sold 4,7 million in one day in the USA and UK alone.

    Uhm. WotLK was the fastest selling PC game of all time, until CoD:MW2 was released.

    And it's quite possible that Cataclysm might take away that crown again from CoD:MW2
