Yeah, I know. Massively multiplayer online games can't have the same level of graphics as single player RPGs. They have to be dumbed down so that the most players possible can load them on the crappiest PCs imaginable. You also don't want to smother people with video lag when players congregate. I get it.
But, you guys... It's really, really hard for me to go from this...
Watch them both in 1080p. The difference is profound.
Hell, even World of Warcraft looks better and more refined than SW:TOR. (I tried to find a sample WoW gameplay video but they all have a ton of yapping overlaying them.)
This makes my little gamer heart sad. :(
