I have never understood this. People will play other games and go "I quit because the questing was always just boring kill this collect that" Umm OK so how is that any different than WoW? You say that part of the game sucks and then you go back to WoW and roll a new alt or go do dailies. Im confused. If kill this and collect that quests suck in a different game why is it acceptable in WoW? Or people will say the gameplay is too linear. Like it isnt in WoW? Every quest hub sends you right to the next one every single time, it never changes, how is that not linear? Or people will say "I hated X Game because it was too grindy" and then they go back to WoW. OK again why do you quit another game saying its too grindy and then go back to WoW and grind all those reps to exalted so you can get gear? Or do BGs all day long in order to get Honor gear. Are those not grinds or are they just acceptable because its in WoW?
I just have never understood why people seem to think the things they hated in other games arent in WoW. I read through the threads about other MMOs and its always the things I listed above that make people say they didnt like the game. Yet all of those same things are in WoW so i dont get it. How is it fine for one game to have them but if another game has the exact same things its bad and fail?
