    What does Michael Jordan and WoW have in common?

    That question is posed and answered in MrBTongue's latest YouTube video regarding "The Un-Ruining of the MMO". If you are unfamiliar with his videos, he posts videos filled with dry humor and thoughtful comparisons of video games to other forms of social/historical media. Its not everyone's cup of tea, but its worth a watch.

    Unrelated note, +1 for your Avatar. I don't like many animes, but Darker than Black is one of my favorites.

    Guy was on the money with just about everything. This is why I have more hope for EQ Next (which we know shit about), than I do for TESO. We'll see what happens though.

    He has a good point with not much innovation is being done, and MMO makers are all copying what made wow great, witch dosen't work now days really.

    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
