    Default WoW, it just sucks the life out you

    Did it for me, and I merely ordered a 10-day trial from a website and spent few of my waiting hours watching World of Warcraft videos on youtube. Never again.

    It was terrible to care about any of the game concepts at a time.

    I already imagined a smell sweat in my apartment, concept of time eluding, desire to live normally weakening.. weakening..

    So my alarm ran and I said to myself, wake up foo!

    Still, half the day is spoiled by having remembered all that Uhh now I need an emergency dose of LIFE

    Why oh why am I weak for such useless pursuits Blessed be those who always have a good grip on reality. It's impossible to lure certain kind of sensible people to the trap named Wow

    The game is woven to snare the fly.
    Honey is always sweeter when stuck to the feet.
    When that happens, you cannot move.

    I finally found a happy medium with the game. I used to be extremely addicted to it, to the point that I would get home from work every day, log in until I passed out at around 1:30AM, and then 12 hours a day on the weekends.

    Now I play about 3 hours a week, and I am really enjoying it. I am still able to have fun without losing myself to it. I guess it's all about balance.

    I was playing all the time (seriously, I mean like 30 hours a week) until like March. It was because I was so depressed, and the game has an (1) easy reward structure and (2) socializing without having to go out and (3) persona customization where I could be whomever I wanted and be accepted.

    Once I changed my living arrangements and started extroverting a lot more (and having opportunities to do that), my playtime dwindled quickly to 10 hour a week, then down to nothing.

    Now I force myself to login every 10 days or so, for an hour or two, just to stay in touch with people.

    But yes, remember that the game is designed to be addictive, especially to the novice crowd.
