World of Warcraft

May 17, 2006

I’ve recently got seriously addicted to world of warcraft. I really don’t understand what it is about killing unending monsters and completing quests. The gameplay basically consists of doing the same thing over and over and over yet I keep coming back for more. When I’m not playing it I’m thinking about it. Why?!

I’ve played offline RPG’s before and they’ve never managed to hook me like this. Diablo was okay for a while but I never really got complusive about it. I’m guess it’s the social aspects that make it fun. I started a character on a low population server but found it rather dull.

I’m hoping the addiction will reduce after a while because, really, there are plenty of other better things I could be doing with my life than grinding through monsters.

  1. Don’t count on the addiction reducing after a while – for myself, having started at the european retail, it hasn’t, I play roughly 3 hours a day still 😛

    I had a phase where WoW even seriously endangered my relationship with the most wonderful woman in the world, and still it’s something she doesn’t like in my life, although in all honesty it was way out of control when we had that crisis, and I have it under control much better now, it’s more of a hobby and less of an addiction. So take care.

    But me and thousands of others still love WoW, so it can’t be all bad 🙂

  2. Over the weekend I bought the 14 day trial version that you warned me to stay away from. Haven’t installed it yet, I’m waiting for a block of time where I can spend time on it and not have time to play 15 minutes at a stretch. I’m not sure I could afford for it to become addictive anyway 🙂

    tell me about it, guido. my boyfriend said his dad was in the ICU and that he was doing shifts with his brothers at the hospital only for me to find out that he was actually playing WOW from 9 in the evening til about 6 in the morning. it gets real out of hand.

    In the ICU?! Are you kidding? Geez maybe I’m not so addicted after all.

    Well… i cant say i have experienced this game, but i can tell you i will be checking it out for sure…killing endless monster families seems quite appealing when there is nothing else to do… have far to much time on my hands these days with wrapping things up at work as your new neice is only about 7 weeks way now!! Literally nothing to do ALL DAY at work…so even popping virtual bubble wrap is entertaining! Love your little sis xoxoxoxox hehhe!!
