I saw that on another forum I belong to and it's insane. I never got into WoW and I hope that I don't get sucked in.

I played for a little while, it is far too addicting and time consuming. Better to hang around this place on my free time. ;-)

i started playing this summer. Initially it was all the time, but i then got burned out after 6 weeks or so. I'll probably start back up at some point when i'm really bored.

Thing is, it's most fun when you're playing online with friends... partying up for quests, raiding, or whatever else.

I've almost tried it several times but then I get too distracted by everything else. It really does seem like a novel idea though and it is pretty popular. I don't even play Spore enough as it is. My little civilization is quite depressing to look at.

i am not a fan of the graphics and the fact that you can jump in an MMORPG is disgusting. this isn't a platformer.

also i am not a fan of the art style.

you're complaining about jumping? With the variety of the landscape, it's kind of necessary once in a while. Just seems trivial to me.

Anyway, the game is like 5 years old, so the fact the graphics have held up this long is impressive, and a testament to it's design.

You aren't a fan of having fun either, are you.

Are you being serious?

I don't get WOW myself. I tried the free trial and found myself just running around aimlessly doing nothing. What was I supposed to do?

Now Half Life 2. That is something worth talking about ;)

That episode was hilarious. I asked a few of my WoW playing friends and they said that's how they act. Pretty entertaining.

FFXI is older than WoW and has held up much better.
