World in a World of Warcraft

With Wrath of the Lich King coming out very soon, and four years of the game's history behind us, it's nice to just sit back and read something about the basic fundamentals of World of Warcraft. In a recent article over at GameSetWatch, they've dissected what WoW means to the average person and why it has become so popular.

As the article admits itself, yes, this is in fact another World of Warcraft article. However, it approaches the game from a slightly different angle as the author realizes what the game is all about retrospectively. It's not a beginner's guide to the game, but more like a beginner's guide to what to expect from the people who play the game, and what to expect from yourself if you're getting into the game for the first time. It's certainly worth a read.
