I was reading a comments thread for some news on Realtime Studios recently, mainly concerned with Crackdown 2, but it did somewhat involve APB. The point is, though, that someone said that APB is going to be crushed by WoW, which should have been expected. It was, however, immediately confusing to me. APB is supposedly a GTA-esque game where you play either a cop or a crook, doing cop or crook things. How in any way is this related to slaying dragons as an elf/dwarf/etc etc? Well, I didn’t really think that, but I really should have. MMOs have been lumbered in together, for better or for worse, and I’m wondering why.
