Age of Conan is steak to WoW's cheeseburger


In an odd but fitting metaphorical comparison that resulted in a craving for cheeseburgers, Age of Conan developer Gaute Godager feels that World of WarCraft and other similar MMOs are nice, but Age of Conan is meatier.

"I enjoy playing WOW, I enjoy playing Lord of the Rings Online," Godager admitted in a recent interview with Eurogamer. "But you know... I'm going to be a bit cheeky now, but if you've been to McDonalds for four or five years, and had your burger and your coke, sometimes it's great to just have a great steak and a glass of good wine."

Godager expounded, explaining that Age of Conan is "more expensive, it's not for everyone and perhaps it's not as easily accessible as WOW is. But it could be more meaty."

Further speculation by Godager suggests that AoC might appeal more to Europeans than other MMOs due to different gaming tastes. "In Europe, a lot of people don't have consoles, and they use their PC for gaming to a bigger degree," said Godager. "Many European countries also have better internet connectivity than many parts of the US, and PC gaming has for many years promoted the consumption of high bandwidth, not only through legal means but also through piracy."
