“Large-scale raiding typically emerges months after the release of an MMO product, long after most reviews are written and published. As a result, reviews of MMOs are worthless at describing content that typically occupies 80% of the long-term player’s time. It’s like a car review that only writes about the experience of parking the car; a movie review that describes only the opening credits; or a restaurant review that only describes the appetizers.

This probably won’t change until intelligent games consumers (like you who read this blog!) start asking reviewers to give us the goods on end-game content in MMOs.”
