The point is that even if you produce a great pc game and it sells 10 million copies, without piracy they probably would have sold many more. You can't work into the statistic that people who pirate wouldn't have purchased it anyway. How the fuck do you know??? That's just stupid.

If you can't afford a nice new 50" flat screen tv, and then you go smash the window of your local electronics store and steal one from the showroom floor, are you saying that the manufacturer and the store doesn't lose because they've sold 'enough' already? Doh! Stealing is stealing. There's no argument. Anyone who defends piracy is a thief.

The thing is that Apple has created high-quality, easily accessible products for years. So the expectations are high for them. This problem with the antenna is quite minor when compared to the shit problems that other products have that people still use every day. It's just that people like to bash things that are good. I suppose it's human nature.

The Vista hatred came from all the people that were too stupid to figure out how to configure the UAC. As soon as I installed Vista, I went to the control panel and ticked one checkbox, ONE CHECKBOX! Then all the problems people were complaining about went away. Sometimes great marketing can't even win over mass stupidity.

Yes, but most people who buy pc's don't buy them with the power to run most triple A games. So the future of games is even worse without consoles because the focus will be on social network games via web browser. There you go. All the console haters will have somethings else to bash in the near future.

I also agree. The game looks like a lot of fun so far. No sub is an added bonus.

This game will be like all the rest. The only difference is that they focus more on story elements. Be prepared for your usual delivery and kill n mobs quests with your typical 'grind-to-the-next-level' crap. Nothing new here.

it's a really nice game, but you have to put your back into it if you want to get anywhere. don't know about the american server these days, but americans were complete morons in this game when there was only one server, so that thing might just be a gankfest with nowhere to go. but the european server is very good. it's dangerous to go far if you're not properly prepared or with a party, but you're not going to constantly have to worry about every single person you meet wanting to kill you all the time. it's quite easy to get the first tier of armor and a ton of mounts on your own, but if you want to get any further you'll have to find some people to team up with. the environment has been upgraded a lot in the last half year or so, so there's a lot of stuff to do if you just want to look for and kill npc monsters or do dungeon stuff

I always thought that the stupid Americans were of European descent.

Lol Wife-playable. Wicked...

It's true. Me and my wife both love games but there are very few games that have good co-op. What's more disturbing is that consoles were originally designed for multiplayer action in your living room, but even console games these days don't have many options other than some violent shooters or sports games.

Any mmo that follows the WoW formula is destined to fail. Why do publishers keep pouring money into new games like this? It's not going to work! Move on!

What a load of crap. As one older person goes out of gaming, a new young one (kid) comes in. Probably more than one. Loss my arse.

They're not talking about the evolution of gamers, they're talking about the loss of gamers. Whether a gamer becomes disabled or not, there will always be a new gamer. That's not the point. The point is even with the growing market, there's still loss for several reasons, and one being older gamers becoming disabled.

Jesus, these lists get more and more ridiculous. EVE Online at #3 is especially silly, and points out how easy it is for a fansite or two to skew the results to the extreme.

It is in fact their readers. Do you always generalize?
