Star Wars: The Old Republic: We know it's not made by the same folks who took care of Star Wars: Galaxies, but we still know you're being set up for disappointment here. Do you really think that SWTOR is going to look anywhere near as good as this screenshot? We're under no illusion that the gameplay's going to be chock-full of giant lightsaber-wielding leaps and valiant heroic action. Yep, mostly you'll be crafting and farming and grinding, just like every other MMO out there. And if you need any less incentive to play the game, check out the screenshot's comments: a never-ending stream of embarrassing role-playing fanboy drivel.

The Diablo 3 one is a hard one to agree with. Another game that people said this about was Starcraft 2, and that has become one of if not the best RTS games of all time, and it will single handedly save Esports. I was a lot of faith in Blizzard so I think Diablo will be fine

This I can totally agree with. MMO is always disappoint. Like DCUO, or Cataclysm.

First time hearing of this site (thx N4G for another stupid site) and clearly they dont follow the games that much butthurt pc fanboys because portal is on consoles and in SWTOR you dont craft you let your companions craft when your oflline so GG there for not following the game

Good...

Just wanted to say this writer for PC world should have done a lot more research for the games he/she is reporting on and maybe give a opinion on some games he/she knows about not just take a game that seems like a good rant and pick and unsupported reasons a game might fail...

As for this game, I must say for the average gamer this game wont be for them as they might have not ever played a MMO in their life time... but as far as MMOs go it will be what was promised.

Also, "If only you knew the power of the DarkSide!"

Worthless Article

This is speculative trash. If you're going to write an article of this nature, then research your subject. If you're going to down-talk a game then back it up with research and legitimate reasons why. The only two of these that I agree might be a disappointment are Duke Nukem, simply because of the bad stigma attached to it and it's dated gameplay formula (not to mention the aging of the original fanbase), and Driver, because no one was hyped for that game in the first place. And looking at your odds, I feel like you must've gotten those two right by accident. The others are solid IPs being fleshed out by exceptional developers with pedigree, and monstrous funding to back it up.

Think before you publish. Kthanx.
