Now, i'm not here to bash any game nor say they are bad etc etc.
But one thing, why is almost every game coming out tagged as a WoW clone?
First of all, I play WoW. And yes it's got a lot of features other games have implemented, and yes sometimes the graphics style can look similar.
But it goes like this:
Man: "Hey, you played Rift yet?"
Shemale: "It's just a WoW clone.."
Man: "What do you mean WoW Clone? "
Shemale: "Runes Of Magic, Allods, LOTRO, Forsaken World, Aion, Mario Bros Wii, all wow clones"
Shemales Mother: "WoW's a Everquest Clone"
A bit random i know, but you get my point? EVERYTHING and i mean EVERYTHING is gonna have some similarities to another, Music, Games, Movies, Chocolate Bars..EVERYTHING. But you don't hear people saying "Oh you heard that band Nickleback? Yeah, total Bon Jovi clone" NO! NO! NO! NO!
Bottom Line: This clone tagging needs to stop. Like i say theres gonna be similarities, it's bound to happen, doesn't mean it's a clone. And if it's not gonna stop, then you WoW fanboys need to stop acting like everyones cloning you and you're the victims here, because it can just as easily be said that you cloned everquest. And for Everquest fans, You cloned Ultima Online bla bla bla, It's an endless cycle and it's gotta stop.
tl;dr: If a game comes out first, then games after it is gonna be getting tagged the first games clone. It's ridiculous and has to stop.
FEED THE TROLLS!
