Default anybody play WOW? (world of warcraft)

just curious. it's kind of like a big deal, and i guess over 8 million people play it, so statistics would indicate that some of you play it. i played for a bit about a year ago and quit. got back into it, now i play on the firetree p.v.p. server. i have a level 29 undead warlock.

We have a neighbor who's wife played it. She became obsessed, met an online dude and now got divorced. They have 6 kids and WoW ruined their lives.

I played it with my son, but his grades began to suffer because it's all he thought about and talked about. We've canceled the accounts and it's a banned game in my house.

The South Park WoW episode has a lot of truth to it.

I started playing everquest2 when it came out, and tried out WoW but didn't have as much fun as with EQ2. I eventually quit playing since I was putting far too much time into it. It's too easy to shrug off other responsibilities and just play a game, so it was in my best interest to just stop playing.

Exactly. I have a couple friends who became completely obsessed with it. I won't even go near that game.

it would be easy to get obsessed with it. it's marketing genius in my opinon. it has a huge social aspect, it's addicting, you can't really ever "win" the game, and it never ends.

somebody had a show about wow addicts awhile back, like dr phil, or one of those guys.

i'm not too much of a gamer, so i've never had a problem getting sucked into it. i enjoy it, and have fun when i play, but i only play a few hours a week. work, family, brewing, life in general keep me busy enough. my wife has an account too, and usually we'll log on together a few hours a week, and play together. it's actually been good for our marriage, because it's something that we can both "geek out" on, and enjoy together. of course, we're both super geeks anyways, we also host a biweekly dungeons and dragons old school tabletop roll playing at my house with two GM's and 6 players.

I used to be completely obsessed with everquest, so I know how a game can suck you in. Although, when I was playing everquest, I was in the air force, single, and stuck in the middle of west texas with nothing else to do. Now, I am married with a life, and I am able to enjoy the game in moderation. I mostly play so that I can "hang out" with my good buddies from the air force that live all over the country. We have a good time. Its all about moderation.

F no.. I pretty much hate all video games, I would rather do something out side. Why pretend to do something when you can go out side and do it?
