I didn't expect Sims 2 being so popular lately... I did play that game a lot, because I like playing with someones life (muahahaha!). And I let go after I saw that it was actually a brainwash. It stopped being interesting to live! haha

yeah,i wonder what would happen if they took all of the wow servers down forever?!mass rioting?

It will never happen! Unless of course they release WoW2, eventually the old servers will only be replaced by the newer version of the game. :)

Haha! Maybe not. I have a feeling that those servers also have some sorta super-duper Anti Virus that we can only dream of. Or maybe they make viruses themselves. LOL! :)

Blizzard won't take down the original servers (they'll just close those belonging to other games in their inventory; in fact they've already done it). If they close the original Starcraft servers when SC II is released, Soth Korea may go to war.

I'm still a bit surprised that SPORE is alive, seeing as it is the most copied game ever - or could it be that the media industry is in a small way over-hyping the threat of piracy?

Well a good luck to THQ for their passing WOW on the list. A few more weeks and WOW is most likely back in top though ;)

Why do you say the most copied game ever???
By benny180 (SI Core) on Mar 15, 2009
benny180
because its the most illegally downloaded game ever.
