Casual Play: What Makes WoW Dumb?'s Steve Wilson takes a look at this question in his editorial.

There are a number of things that the hardcore find overly simplistic about WoW. Lack of character customization, lack of impact on the world, lack of variation in crafting, and the lack of meaningful penalties for death are just a few that are constantly mentioned. And for the most part these don't seem to offend any but the old school MMO players.

I'm not my character. That there are only a few options for a different look doesn't particularly matter much to me at all. Once in the game I'll be identifying friends by the name over their heads more than whether their eyes are a paler shade of blue than mine.

More is just a click away.
