Re: World of Warcraft...
It is still 7 million people who have bought the game, it is ridiuclously popular. I wasn't a fan, gave it a fair go, twice, and it just doesn't work. I spend more time just running between places than anything, the fighting is boring with a capital b and it just got really repetitive.
Warcraft one was great. Wolf Riders were the pimp.
You sound like me only I do it with the Civ series. I still prefer the first one over any of the others. 4 is just bloated with crap you don't need or want, 3 is the same, the end game on 3 is just boring, 1 was the best, 2 is also solid.
