World of Warcraft Vs Lord Of The Rings Online – Which Is The Better Game

There’s no doubt that the two hottest MMORPGs (if not the two most popular games) at the moment are World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings Online. Both games offer an ever expanding world for players to explore with thousands of quests to complete, hundreds of monsters to kill and a seemingly infinite amount of other activities. But which is the better game?

One of the main deciding factors of a successful MMORPG is it’s community, something which World of Warcraft clearly has the upper hand on. Having being released in November of 2004, Blizzard has since built a massive subscriber base of 9 million, numbers that are otherwise unheard of in other online games. Thanks to this, finding groups for people to quest with is never an issue. Lord of the Rings, on the other hand, is still a fairly new game with (obviously) not as many players. This is an issue as many quests in the game are group based, and for the levels between 5-20 it was extremely hard to find a group to quest เว็บแทงบอล with (at my time of playing in mid June). With that being said though, the large majority of players in Lord of the Rings gave the impression that they were “serious players” and are a whole lot more mature than those in World of Warcraft.

Aesthetically speaking, Lord of the Rings wins with it’s stunning visuals and graphics. Exploring Middle Earth definitely pleases the eye, but this eye candy does come at a cost — literally — as it requires a more-than-decent PC to run the game. This’ll certainly delay Lord of the Rings growth and further strengthen World of Warcraft’s, thanks to it’s somewhat basic graphics using relatively low computer specification requirements.

It’d take days to write all the positives and negatives of both games, so I’ll keep this short. If you have a computer that’s powerful enough to run most newly released games and don’t mind a small player base, go with Lord of the Rings. If not, go with World of Warcraft. Both games are fantastic and both charge $14.95/month – the decisions lays in your hands (and your credit card!).
