5. World of Warcraft

No sweat, just murdered a massive demon

World of Warcraft is in the early stages of its 5th expansion, Warlords of Draenor. There is no other game on the market that can compete with the longevity and popularity of this game, except for maybe Counter Strike. When it comes to MMORPG’s though, there simply isn’t a better game to play.

In this expansion you have to venture into Draenor in an alternate timeline and stop Garrosh Hellscream and his newly created Iron Horde. Lots of new features were added to this expansion that made the game better. All character models received graphic updates, heirlooms and toys were placed in account wide toy-boxes that don’t take up inventory space, and you also get to control your own garrison.

World of Warcraft has been the King of the MMO industry for over 10 years now. The reason being is that Blizzard revolutionized the industry back in 2004 and have now become the golden standard for all games that have followed. Prior to WoW, MMOs often required countless hours of grinding and dedication in order to participate in the in game content. WoW introduced a model that allowed casual gamers to play by removing harsh penalties for dying and putting tons of quests in close proximity of each other. Killing 20 boars for experience sucks! Killing 20 boars for experience points and hides for three different quests is better.

Not only did those quests break up the grind, they also embellished the lore that was already established in the Warcraft universe. The lore is one of the biggest reasons why people love WoW. Many players cant leave because they've been involved for way too long. They were there when the orcs first invaded, they were there when the dark portal was sealed and when it was opened back up, they were there when Illidan betrayed Malfurion, they were there when Arthas became the Lich King, and they were there when the Destroyer broke the world. Leaving WoW would be like giving up a second home.
