    If anything I'm looking forward to "The Secret World" as I haven't seen anything particularly interesting about that game you all seem to praise for some reason...

    Maybe he should be banned. Despite the blandness it's almost on par with saying 'radical', something only Jeff Bridges and Michelangelo can get away with it. You can still use 'cool' in relative safety, but 'awesome' must be used sparingly to avoid sounding like a bro.

    And let's not even discuss 'hellacool'.

    I hate it when people refer to Star Wars as SciFi. There's more fantasy in it than science. The fluffiest of soft SciFi has some kind of science thing going for it. All of Star Wars screams fantasy. It's mostly a problem for me because I want more hard SciFi in my games. I want games that actually focus on some future science. *sigh*

    The Secret World put me off with it's "EXCLUSIVE FACEBOOK ITEMS!11!!!!111!" campaign. Fuck that noise in the ear.

    On topic: SWTOR is a very, very, VERY good WoW clone. It's basically singleplayer with some minor multiplayer elements, though.

    You're banned too, for having quoted the naughty word.

    I will politely disagree on that assessment. I think it's a WoW clone alright, (it's actually more like WoW than WoW is at the moment, in a number of ways) but I personally found most of the "campaigns" to be utterly, mind-numbingly boring. I did like the Smuggler, though.

    I think some of the creators like to call it space fantasy. Sounds about right to me.

    I played WoW for a while, and then got VERY bored with it. Sitting in a dungeon finder waiting for that one healer or tank to show up while looking for "LFG Healer!" in General chat while sifting through the 4chan and reddit memes made me want to throw up. I then played EVE for a bit. While it was fun, participating in real territory wars and the big battles I saw advertised required more of a time sink and putting up with internet drama than I was wanting to put in. So I'm in about the same place as everyone else. My interest perked up with SWTOR but after one video I thought "yep...WoW clone" and that was it.

    I LOVE having big battles or coop-ing some bosses/dungeons with my friends and using strategy, but the games that do have those experiences require too much time or are filled with trolls (I went through so many dungeons in WoW with randoms that would drop after just ONE wipe...ugh). Planetside 2 is my last great hope. I don't even care if it's not that great, just as long as I can join a faction, jump in a transport, blow shit up, and capture territory with 200 other people who are at least passably amicable. Like Risk, but I'm one of those puny little guys getting blown up by a dice roll.

    I guess every time I enjoy one of their games, I'm objectively wrong then?

    When I first started playing Mass Effect and it seemed like Bioware making a new KOTOR but with the serial number filed off, I would refer to the Biotics as Space Magic. Space Fantasy with Space Magic and the Normandy is the One Ship to seduce them all in.

    You're subjectively right, you can like and enjoy whatever games you want, good or bad. I love Chaos Legion or movies like Old Schools even though I know they're objectively bad; and I don't like "El Quixote" even though it's the summum of Spanish literature.

    The only way you could be wrong is by stating that the games were objectively good, which they may or may have not been. But probably they have because we, same as rpgcodex, hate cRPGs.

    Or, you can divorce craft from creativity and understand that there is no 'objective good' when it comes to any art form. Only mastery of craft.

    And please, for the love of all that is good and holy, don't compare us with the dogmatic trolls of RPG Codex.

    I don't think of mass consume media as art; but coming to think about it, they are supposed to be created for enjoyment and they can be measured as such instead of as a sum of the individual measurable quality of their parts. But then everything is subjective and THE SYSTEM WOULD CRUMBLE.

    You're conflating "art" with "entertainment."

    I have no interest in TOR, but I do hope it's a smashing success. Mainly because pc gaming as a platform needs smashing successes to stay alive. As much as people love to demonize EA I think the only worse thing than EA succeeding would be EA failing and deciding to abandon the PC altogether. So even though I think TOR looks abit crap, I hope millions of others have a ball with it.

    PC gaming's currently doing fine. Better than at any point in its history.
