New game or not, it is still a big money maker for blizzard. On top of that, there haven't been many advances in graphics over that past 5 years for reason known to every PC gamer.

Maybe not from Blizzard... BF3 is pretty amazing on a high spec machine.

@DRM piece.

DRM needs to be looked at again, big style. I've downloaded loads of free legal movies and programs only to be confronted with an obstacle course of "things to do" before i can play them. One time it took me nearly 2 hours and i still couldn't get it going.

It's no wonder people torrent even *free* things, never mind about the paid ones...

Heh... You do realize that people still play Everquest too, right? Sometimes it's not the engine, it's the world and the time you've put into it that keeps you playing. And the social fellowships you develop along the way. Personally, I only made it about a week on WoW before I decided it wasn't for me, but I've got friends that swear by it...
