Interesting read. Too bad they didn't get to the Baulder's Gate or even Diablo days. Those games really made RPG video games awesome. Of course now we have WoW and whatnot which are even crazier.

I still prefer the tabletop though. But, using that Microsoft Surface version would be cool.

If Diablo 3 is as good as they say it will be. WOW will be left in the dust.

not really. World of Warcraft has immense replay ability and end game content and a massive player base. And with new expansion packs being added every 1-2 years and patches adding instances, new spells, fixes, etc. 2+ times a month. I think the only thing to stop the World of Warcraft is a nuclear war destroying the world. or the government banning it.

Or hot pockets spiking in price...

Or governments charging rent for kids who live in their mom's basements....

Or something better comes along.

Or girls.
ha, right.

Biggest problem with WoW (if you count it as a problem) is that it takes too much time. If you wanna be any good you have to constantly play. That's partially why I quit.
