D&D is a lot of fun, I used to play it too and several other dice based games. It was a highlight of the week for me.

These days I get the same kind of fix from LOTRO - it's got the same kind of feel in group play - most of the people I play with enjoy that the most. When there's no one to play with then you can explore the world and quest of course, so if you are in the mood there's always something to do.

@Infurl, if you think WoW's map is big then you should visit Middle Earth  :D

Here's a video comparing map sizes that was made last year, thought it was interesting.
D&D graphics is kinda old, but LOTRO is still good and huge game world to explore, love it  ::)

That was a very well done presentation and there were some surprises, I'll grant you that. Out of interest, how big is the download for LOTRO now? I just checked and WoW is taking up 60GB on my drive. I would get back into it if I wasn't having so much fun programming here.

Although I haven't played it, I was waiting to see EVE Online but it wasn't there; I was satisfied with the inclusion of No Man's Sky though. In the final analysis, it's not the size of the game world that counts but the Kolmogorov complexity.

Has anyone here ever played Travian?

This game does not waste resources on fancy graphics, you just play it in your browser. Though it might not look it at first sight, it is the most intense gaming experience you are ever likely to have. It is played in real-time against thousands of other players and each game lasts a year.

Don't blame me if it ruins your health and destroys your life. You've been warned.  >:D

While I'm sure it's a nice, engaging game, I think a lot of people are actually searching and enjoying the digital, "Uncanny Valley" of realism, even at a cost of resources. Bigger, better, faster, stronger...you know the drill.

Here's another size comparison video, this time of fictional buildings.
