Ironically, from a “Quote of the Day” article.
I laughed out loud when I read this over at TAGN, from Wilhelm (the author) himself in the comments section.
To expand on that of course, you have to add in the rest:
But the teamwork and the fleets and the big fights and conquest of space from other groups, that is what makes it compelling. And it can be very immersive when you are deep into something.
The reason I laughed (to myself, out loud, in my office. Which is normal.) is that this is how I exactly see EVE. I have tried the trial so many times but it never sticks for me. I really enjoy reading about it though, often at TAGN or Hardcore Casual, among other blog sites.
Just a fitting way to describe a game that captures the imagination of so many – often through the stories and events more so than the actual game play.
