Too Much World of Warcraft?

   29 August 2006, early morning

Any down time in my life is now spent playing World of Warcraft. This past week has been particularly bad since I don’t have Shima to keep my playing in check. Yesterday I must have played the game for something like 4 or 5 hours. I feel like I’ve become my 12 year old self, rushing home from school—now work—to play video games. Things are different now however. Final Fantasy you’d play to a conclusion. Super Mario you’d play to some conclusion. World of Warcraft has no end. The game keeps going even when you aren’t playing. It’s interesting and incredibly captivating, but also incredibly addictive. Still, I think it’s a better use of my time then surfing the Internet for 4 or 5 hours, which is probably how I spent much of my time before when I was home.



  1. I don’t see how it’s any different than people rushing home from work to watch their favorite primetime tv shows or whatever it is that normal people do after work. What do normal people do after work anyways?

  2. I go to muay thai and boxing classes and let fat guys hit me.

    That’s normal, right?

  3. There is nothing wrong with Muay Thai.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
