I played EverQuest for six years. Loved it. I played a lot of MUDs, Meridian59, UO, CoH, etc. that I found enjoyable as well.
I paid for a month of WoW, played for one week, said "Meh" and cancelled my account and didn't even using the remaining weeks. My friends that kept playing had maxed their level inside of a month.
EQ may have been overly harsh with the death penalties, but there are so little difficulty in WoW that there was no sense of accomplishment. Top that with higher level players just running their friends and alts through dungeons non-stop for no-risk loot and you've got a true snooze-fest. The art and character animation is the only exceptional aspect that I can think
So, every time I hear about someone addicted to WoW, I think to myself "They must have never played any good MMORPGs". That, or they must be in a guild with really interesting people whose company they enjoy... because the game isn't all that.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
HotHardware is MY cocaine!
SPAM-posters beware! ®
HotHardware is more my heroin than my cocaine. My cocaine would have to be Battlestar Galactica!
Gamer #1: "Did you hear? A study says WoW is just like Cocaine!"
Gamer #2: "Really?... I gotta try this 'Cocaine' stuff!"
gotta love that episode
never really got into world of warcraft.. kinda thing that's a good thing.
I used to play Anarchy online. I eventually got tired of having to have a wizard(Or whatever class that was) to buff me to go into battle and not fail. I tried Wow and like you 3vi1 never payed for another month. MMOs have never really been my type of game though.
Somehow I doubt a lot of these people have even done cocaine. I have not played WOW so I can't say if its anything like coke but how about saying WOW is like cookies instead?
i have played game very much before,and then i often have headachs.
now i play 3 times a week.
i think gameing that is very exciting..

"The organization's target group is adolescents and young adults who are at risk from substance abuse, criminal activity, computer game addiction, relationship issues, family problems, school difficulties, depression, burnout, or neuropsychiatric diagnoses."
With a laser focused "vision" like that, I think they could've put the period immediately after "adolescents and young adults" and said the same thing. Just about every person in that age group would be considered "at risk" for at least one of those. lol
FWIW, EVE: Online is the most addictive game I've ever played. "Deep" does begin to describe the complexities of that game. I've been playing it (at time more than I probably should) for over 2 years now. There's just something cool about 40,000+ users online on the same server in the same universe simulataneously.
Wow, this topic's over a year old...
lol... yea... this one should of stayed buried. lol
Also a lot of the guys I work with play this game, and I hear them talking about it all the time. It drives me crazy lol
I hate that game :-P
