wow WoW is still up their I'm not renewing subscription until the expansion

Southpark had a huge impact on keeping WoW up there for October, it'll be down next few months probably, then the xpac will take the #1 spot when its released.

Because they are a seperate SKU and sold that way. Both make the Top 10 like most dual/tripile releases these days.

Yeah, because they're POPULAR and ENJOYABLE to many people. :P It may be crap to you, but to others (specifically those who like playing God, and the female audience in general) it's an enjoyable experience.

To those people wondering why they keep making Sims crap, there's your answer.

It is better than that Battlefield 2142 crap. At least the Sims 2 is playable.

I meant Sims crap in the really general sense--I'm guilty of owning the game and every expansion pack.

The game is popular because it's accessible to a broader audience, unlike shooters and MMORPGs. How many people could talk their grandmother into playing BF or WoW?
