    Heh, I used to play WoW for about... yeah ~50 hours a week seems about right when I came back from England. Decided to take 6 months off working, fiance was in another country for a while.

    I dunno how people manage to do it while being employed though. :)

    Um, just to be clear. I didn`t take off 6 months off work TO play World of Warcraft. I took some time off to relax and bought WoW.

    Why do some men still pickup women figures in games? In Linage2 a friend of mine picked a Dark Elf female char so that he could look at her behind whyle fighting but has far has i can think he was the only one giving me a real reason.

    I used to play Wow, not really as much now, in all honesty the actual game play isn`t that good, it has to be played with other people, I have to constantly talk to people at all times, the fact that it`s an MMO is it`s only redeeming feature.

    Heh I dunno why people complain about female characters being played by males. They don`t necessarily mean anything.

    Most of my characters are male, but I do have some female characters (E.g. I think the female trolls look better than the male, and wanted to try a Troll character).

    Thing is, sure, I`m not a female. That character is female.
    I`m also not a Troll Shaman/Orc Hunter/Undead Priest/Blood Elf Warlock/etc.

    I think the reason people complain is they`ve been hitting on someone (or given them lots of free stuff) in the hopes of some hot cyb0r only to find out they`re the wrong gender. ;)

    (Any girl gamers out there who play male characters to not be hit on? I know I found that annoying playing my female char.)

    I`d usually make my WoW characters according to their class, not what I look like. For example, my paladin had golden hair and a serene espression, while my warrior had a brown, military haircut and a battleworn face. Case and point, that first guy from "city of heroes" got his guy down perfectly.

    I`m supposed to care why exactly? Some of them sort of looked like the people, but only because of things like hairstyles and accessories (glasses, jewelry, etc.)

    I was glad to see the guy with the respirator being able to play, it has to be tough to live like that. But I`m sorry, the fat guy who was listed as a "student" who played 55 hours a week (he was #5) is just sad. He needs to get out and get a life. He`ll be dead by the time he`s 30 if he keeps that up. Playing games online is fine but he can`t have time for a social life in the real world if he plays that much, and he has nothing holding him back like the guy with the respirator.

    I don`t get anyone who can spend over 40 hours playing games. That`s like a normal work week, but you`re not even getting paid for your time. Just seems like a waste to me.

    Though I do like to play sims 2 occasionally.

    Uhh, do you have ANY idea what MMO means? MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE, that MEANS you have to interact with people, and no, you don`t need people for everything, there`s plenty of solo content and plenty of group/raid content, unless your Nihilum and beat everything the week its released :P

    "How can anyone spend xxxx hours playing games?!"

    The average individual American watched four hours and 35 minutes a day of television last year.

    That`s over 32 hours a week for the average American.

    I can`t source this, but ages ago a friend told me he didn`t understand how I found time to go to the gym or pray (Muslim 5 times a day thing). Turns out he spends more time watching TV *commercials* than I did for both combined.

    In fact, here`s a fun exercise I did for a while:
    If you can do push-ups, or sit ups or anything fairly strenuous, try doing them during the commercials. As soon as the commercials start, till when they stop. Kinda like a drinking game.

    If you can`t do it, perhaps it`s a sign you watch too much TV.

    If this is no fake, then it`s amazing how some look identical and some completely different!

    i`ve been playing WoW for awhile now.. and im a female and my main`s a female char.

    It kinda sucks cuz you tend to get hit on a lot.. and there`s a lot of creepsters out there. I have made male characters on some servers to avoid the getting hit on.. but it`s still kind of a problem on vent.

    I personally don`t have it that bad.. but i`ve heard really bad cases with girls getting majorly discriminated on raids and such just because of their gender. i think thats pretty messed up.

    also i can sometimes see why guys choose to play female characters.. i just hate it when they pretend to actually be female.. they need to fess up instead of living a lie.. even if it is a video game.

    I recognize the second guy, Tommy Graves aka War Catalyst in City of Heroes. Don`t think I`ve teamed with him before, but I know the name. Cool seeing so many "City of" players. There a site you can go to called CoHFaces, it`s the same deal, the real life people behind the characters, though suspicion (okay, and common sense) leads me to believe some of them aren`t really who they say they are.
