SWG vs SWTOR – Which Is BEST in 2020?

Do you prefer SWG or SWTOR? If you’re looking for a game that allows you to immerse yourself in the Star Wars universe and roleplay while completing different objectives, which one should you pick? In this video, Napyet will breakdown the major differences between SWG (Star Wars Galaxies) & SWTOR (Star Wars The Old Republic). They’re both classic MMOs but which is best in 2020?

SWTOR itself has come a long way since then and is in many ways not like the same game it was at launch. But now, in 2020, both games are available to play through different venues. The…
