Did you really just praise Age of Conan?

Played WoW since beta. The graphics are not amazing.

Also stop comparing cartoon style graphics to a more "life like" style of graphics.

wows gfx were amazing 6 years ago or whatever. well arguably guild wars gfx were even more amazing and gw engine ran great on my old pentium where wow chugged in if.

*** gfx are the best out there in commercial mmos.

most mainstream mmos do not push gfx or they alienate a number of casuals they might otherwise get to play, not that i doubt rabbid trekkies would spend any amount of cash to upgrade their rigs to play the first star trek mmo even if it used the crysis engine and pushed a couple billion polys on screen all the time. but the semi fan or the casual gamer just looking for something different to play is not going to dump a few 100 or more into their rig to play any game, especially when there 50 other mmos out there that their rigs can play just fine.

uuummmm............................you joking ???!!!

i have played wow for awhile too. and it graphics are older than this game and not even on the same level. hell guild wars graphics might be considered better than wow. i doubt this game could even run at full detail levels on my old 512mb 8500gt card like it it does on my current 1gb 9800gtx card.

and for the record the 8500gt card could easily handle wow and full detail levels so it doesn't say much about wow's graphics. it was pretty when it first came out.

I must say the graphics don't look that good... but maybe that's because my video card isn't supposed to be able to run STO? :p

could be a true post...

Some people don't have a clue about computer stuff.

I talked to someone complaining about ugly graphics, and come to find out they just went in video and turned "everything" on or up all the way.... including "half resolution" ... I had to explain that some options you actually want OFF for better graphics.

I always found WOW to be really cartoony and even though it does have a few special effects, you can easily notice the polygons. The purpose for crappy graphics in wow is so people with an old P3 with a 32mb pci card can play it. I'm running with an EVGA GTX260, and while there was an improvement in WOW with that card, using that same card for STO produced way better graphics. I can run high on both games and dont see any polys in STO.
