Most of WoW's success is due to how huge it is/was in Asia. It took a couple years before it really took off in the west, and you should never take WoW into account to begin with. It's so damn huge that it's basically an anomaly all unto itself, nothing else will ever come close. The pre-existing franchise and huge popularity of Warcraft (both overseas and here) are what allowed it to reach such bizzare numbers anyway.
