Ultimate Game Mashup – Let Me Bore You For A Moment

No really, I'm afraid this is just too boring.

No really, I'm afraid this is just too boring.

If you could take your favorite game elements of all time and combine them into the ultimate digital experience – the one game to rule them all – what would it be? How would it work? Describe your digital nirvana, build your ultimate game from the still twitching parts salvaged from other titles.

I’m sorry everyone, I’m just this boring…  I can’t get over it, I love World of Warcraft…  When I sit here thinking about other games that I liked as much as WoW… I can’t.  Honestly I can’t even think of a game that compares.  When I’m playing all these other games, its almost like I’m just passing the time until I get to play WoW again, especially other MMO’s I feel like I’m just cheating on my true love.

How do I even explain this feeling I have for WoW?  That’s really all there is to it, it’s a feeling.  I feel at home, at peace when I play WoW.  It’s become that much to me, my home away from home.  Even now with the new expansions that have basically just stripped the game down to easily accessible  easily beaten pieces, it’s the place I would rather be.  It’s the way it looks, sounds and feels.  

This is just one example of how beautiful WoW can be.  It’s just this art style that holds me.

What am I going to do when WoW servers are shut down (I mean… its gonna happen one day right)?

So my ultimate game.  It could only be WoW done in a slight different way.  The only differences being that they take all of the things they’ve added throughout the expansions but did it with vanilla difficulty.  Vanilla provided the best environment to actually ROLEPLAY.  That really is the only thing WoW is missing.  It needs to go back to its old ways where I felt like a harmless speck on the massive dangerous landscape.  It led to a much more deep involvement and connection with your character.  Everything now is too easy to obtain; remember when you first got your epic mount in Vanilla?  For those who didn’t get to play then, it was “EPIC” because of how difficult it really was to grind out 1000 gold on a server where 1 gold was a decent amount.  Concluding that WoW needs the extreme role play feel that you get from Elder Scrolls.  

Found another example of the beauty of WoW courtesy of my little brother.

Maybe a little birthday cakeish, but beautiful.
