I'll ignore Google+, and I'll be pissed off if Google decides to automatically add it to Gmail.

It will happen. Just as Gmail got linked to YouTube accounts, and unless you use two browsers (or turn off cookies) it will be linked to your Google searches as well.

Google have some nice services and one login to tie them together makes it easy to use, but keep in mind that Google's main income is from advertising and data mining.

All MMOs are grinds, but some still manage to be different from WoW (like Tabula Rasa and Ryzom) and be great games on their own. They often do this by having a great (roleplay) community and/or focus on story development, the clones rarely get that they need more than just a copy of the mechanics.
