    Default What if it were Like This...?

    You know sometimes analogies can be very enlightening and interesting. We all know that WoW is the world's finest and most well tuned mmo. Sort of like a beautiful actress with a nice voice and a grand backing with some history. But...what if... Rift: Planes of Telara were the Susan Boyle this year?

    I have NEVER been so overwhelmed with emotion when a dear friend of mine sent me this youtube last year and it is one song i just can NEVER tired of listening to. Just to see Simon's face change, the one guy you'd probably like to punch out because well he just seems the professional jerk when it comes to things like this. Now transform this thinking for just a bit to the gaming industry. The world is watching and waiting..up steps Scott and the boys and they unfurl Rift in all it's glory...

    I know ALL of you have seen this, but I can't help but give this to each of you again, but this time Rift = Susan, and simon is that large group of bored mmo doubters,,,ya know the ones that keep saying it's a WoW clone...well..I don;t think so...

    Wouldn't we like to admit.."no one's laughing at you now, Rift!" Truly dreams can come true, it's just up to us, the community!

    RIFT as Susan Boyle? Interesting analogy. I disagree however as most people are saying positive things about RIFT before the release. The hype is good. Expectations are high. Susan Boyle had no expectations from anyone.

    Not so sure i agree with WoW being the "finest and well tuned" mmo lol...all it's achieved is popularity for young kids, the graphics suck and the gameplay in general sucks.

    I had no expectations, really.

    Then I got into Beta 4. Unsubbed from WoW and stopped caring about TOR the next day.

    I've been searching for a home for years. I've found one.

    I use the analogy that WoW is like McDonald's fast food.. Sure its quick & convenient and pretty satisfying if your hungry.. But in the end all it is is crappy food that is unhealthy for you..

    Just cause McDonald's is probably the worlds most popular restaurant doesn't mean its better than a fine restaurant..
