The internet is filled with EQ2 vs WoW threads, articles, columns, etc. But I have yet to see something that is not biased and is actually up to date, meaning that it looks at the game, as they are now.
For this reason I decided that it would be fun writing something along those lines. But there were problems in front of me before I even began to write the first sentence... How was I to write something objective and unbiased, yet still compare the two games? In the end I decided to do it in the following way:
- Break down the two games into several categories
- In each category look at what each game promised to deliver, what it delivered upon launch and what it offers now
- At the end of each category look at the progress of each and try to determine who will care about this.
Oh, before I forget… I am sure that several people will disagree with me and say that I favored one of the two games. This is of course inevitable. But with my 20+ days invested into each of the two games (that means 20+ days of pure game play time – over 480 hours invested into each of the games) I think I have a pretty good idea what both games offer.
With that said, let the fun begin.
