World of Warcraft... where do we start? A game so legendary, it became synonymous with MMO as a genre. Gameplay so addictive, people actually died refusing to stop playing. A franchise so influential, it is now getting a live-action blockbuster movie. But what was the beginning of the massive cult that is World of Warcraft?

In its core WoW is a pretty standard 3D game with a role-playing system that wasn't that revolutionary when the game originally came out. Players were able to travel around the fantasy world of Warcraft games, complete quests, gain experience, items, weapons and armor, communicate with each other, form guilds. Later, different expansions, patches and add-ons made the world bigger, improved visuals and technical performance of the game, etc. It's pretty much useless to try and describe a decade of history in a single review, but it's safe to say that ten years ago WoW looked almost nothing like the gigantic most popular online RPG in the world. The game still sells thank largely to regular and devoted support from the developers who know well what a cash cow it is.

Today, although it's graphically dated beyond terrible, World of Warcraft is still the juggernaut of online gaming. You probably know what it is. And if you don't, you will.

Marshall Brown I totally enjoy iMesh and the speed and ease it takes to discover new music, and find and download any music I like, then playing it hours on end! It totally transforms my computer into an enjoyable place to spend my time, especially when writing work reports or taking long notes. I have no problems at all with iMesh, I love it! TO THOSE OF YOU WHO WISH TO UNINSTALL iMESH: for the girl who tried but failed to uninstall iMesh, I guess I can't blame her as iMesh meshes with other p2p file-sharing apps to find and retrieve the files you want. But If you want to remove iMesh, go to www.spywareremove.com/removeiMesh.html and follow the instructions to remove iMesh. You can also uninstall iMesh by going to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Add/Remove programs, chose iMesh and click "Remove" button. Clicking it one time will do the job - if iMesh is still found in Add/Remove programs click on "Remove." If iMesh is not found in your Add/Remove programs list but still exists in your computer - delete the iMesh directory manually, usually found in the "c:program filesiMesh" directory, and the entry will disappear. Make sure you do this after attempting at least one Uninstall from your Add/Remove Programs menu first, especially when iMesh is listed there. One last trick some people use with success is to reinstall iMesh and then immediately uninstall it. If none of these tricks work, google search for the string: "removing iMesh safely completely." Good Luck!
