A breath of fresh air in this cesspool of negativity. Good article.

Yep, good article. I've respected Larry's opinion for a while now after watching him for a long time on gamebreaker.tv's "The Republic".

I'll be here for the long haul with this game. I've long become immune to the "grass is always greener in the next MMO" disease.

Of course the irony is that the majority of responses to this linked article on Facebook by BioWare, were negative.

Of course they were. Being a "hater" is the new cool or something...

I'm not totally immune.

I like trying new things. I've experienced most of SWTOR at this point. I played the GW2 beta and it was fun, but at the same time I did a side-by-side comparison in my head against SWTOR, and the outcome was decidedly mixed. Some things SWTOR did better, some things GW2 did better. I'm with Penny Arcade on this one.

Yeah I second that. I know TOR can be somewhat boring at times, hotbar combat, linear content and planets, as a whole typical theme park symptoms, but there's really nothing else out there even worth spending time on. Tera is just korean grinder F2P lol, GW2 will crash and burn soon enough and settle with a bunch of the fans while the rest of the world don't know about or care about GW2.

Most of the people who comment over on Massively just love to bash SWTOR. Larry's columns are usually as good as today's.

Yeah, not remotely interested, personally, in either one of those.

Although, I am curious what AAA MMO ZeniMAX (Bethesda Softworks) is currently working on...
