Kai – World of Warcraft – World of Warcraft was the first massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) I ever played. Fit had been playing it for a little while and encouraged me to join. I created a Gnome mage named Norqueatus and started exploring the frozen tundra of Dun Murogh.
World of Warcraft is the most approachable MMORPG I’ve played, due to its rock solid engine/controls and the slow growth of your character’s powers. Initially you’re sent on very simple quests with only a single spell, but by the end you’re fighting dragons with dozens of spells and twenty-four other players. It has a very balanced learning curve.
The art and lore are also top quality, provided a cartoonish world with every imaginable type of scenery. Quest storylines are complex and your character can really change the way the world looks and acts.
I don’t play much anymore (other than purchasing and leveling up with every latest expansion), but that’s mostly due to feeling like there’s nothing new for me to try (not to mention the amount of time that is required at high levels of play). If you’re looking to live in another world for a few months, no other game has the combination of an easy learning curve and massive scope.
