I Wonder If He's For Sale?

Second Life vs Kingdom of Loathing

This isn't really a competition. SL is a nice fat download, which then proceeds to burn processor if you venture into a remotely complex environment. KoL is a PHP based browser game with hand drawn stick figure graphics. SL is boring as tits, because it's not exactly clear what you're supposed to be doing, and most places seem empty, unfinished and depressed. In KoL you have clearly defined quests, with ingenious solutions, and plenty of ironic monsters to beat on. SL has desperate marketing schemes, KoL has pop culture references, eating, drinking, gambling, stealing and sabre toothed limes.

I know where I'm off to tonight.
