We've heard a lot of WoW vs. Aion talk throughout the past few months, but this takes the cake. MMOSite.com published a unique editorial recently, titled "Would WoW Clone be Replaced by Aion Clone in the Days to Come?" In a nutshell, the MMOSite team postulates a dramatic twist of fate in which someday down the road, we might begin seeing Aion clones instead of WoW clones. "Will players say xx is an AION clone instead of WOW clone in the future?" they ask.
Don't mistake the article for calling Aion a "WoW clone;" the real question is whether or not new MMOs like Aion will set a precedent like WoW did, all those years ago (and perhaps, like Everquest before it). It's written in MMOSite's usual media-rich format, which offers an interesting read and an eyeful of screenshots and videos to check out.
