<rant>I play computer games, but it annoys me when two or three WoW players will start talking in the computer lab about the quests they`ve done or are going to do because:
1. I don`t know what the hell they`re talking about.
2. They talk about it as if it was real or mattered.
3. I still have to hear about it.

Alot of stuff on the list isn`t accurate, but it`s really funny lol.

The money thing though, money is not hard to get.. In fact, I wish getting money in real life was as easy as getting it on WoW :P

The person who made this obviously has never played WoW. It`s completely wrong and stereotypical. I don`t devote my life to the game, yet I get to see everything the game has to offer. I think WoW is a great game, but I don`t play it all day, every day. I haven`t played it today. I only played for an hour or so yesterday.

Sometimes, I start to wonder where the whole "every WoW player is an addicted 10 year old nerd" stereotype came from. WoW has it`s fair share of idiots, but you`ll find that the concentration of them is no greater than the entire internet itself.

granted, i`m guilty of occasionally doing a day-long play session in MMOs (like WoW or EQ2, Pre NGE SWG, and so on) but I at least have a job, my own home, a fiancee, and alternative hobbies.

When people start taking these video games as far as these bigots do, it`s time to turn off the PC and wander into the world outside.
I`m a gamer, and I support sitting in for a weekend and having a long play session with a guild or a new game until you beat it or finally reach end-game.. but sometimes it`s just too much.

If you`re unemployed and sit at home all day above the age of 17 to play World of Warcraft... You need to have your PC rights removed. It`s called addiction and while there`s no physical substance, it is still harmful a`la obesity, poor diet, poor circulation, lack of sleep, eye damage, hand/wrist injuries, and so on.

Go outside! You don`t even have to play a sport.. just go take a walk!

ergh....

I really don`t understand why some guilds take themselves so seriously and `high n` mighty" to have such long application processes as the ones exampled in the article. It`s a frickin` GAME!
These people sit in their basements all day at 45, ignoring their mothers` screams to come eat while they act like their World of Warcraft guild is "too good" for the average person. It`s disgusting.
I was referred to a guild once in WoW, I applied via forums (simple app thankfully) but upon being `contacted` I had to go through some lengthy process where, like mentioned in the article I had to sit on the sidelines in raids and watch the fights. If i aggro`ed anythingw hile waiting, logged out, talked when not spoken to, or tried to join in, in ANY way (even healing a member who was dying) I was cast out and rejected. What.. the.. F..
I can understand trying to `screen out` the gold diggers, idiots, and morons but some guilds just went too far. Ridiculous.

"Hard as it may be to believe, sometimes a WoW player may have a significant other who does not play WoW. Sometimes this person (usually female in these cases) tends to be a crazy, unreasonable harpy who wants their husband/boyfriend to spend time with them sometimes instead of going on WoW raids all night."

ROFL

I will never play this game. Ever.

My boyfriend`s little brother will literally play this from 1 in the morning until 1 in the morning the next day.

It`s quite sad.

I`ve vowed to never play World of Warcraft since my cousin started playing it a while back.

He spends almost the entire night and the entire day playing it. And that`s pretty much all he does now.

WoW was fun and I experienced MOST of what was said, including all the sex parts.

I`m surprised they didn`t link to http://epicslut.ytmnd.com/ , where the chick prostituted herself out for an ingame thing. the mount is nice to have, but know how many people DIDN`T sell their body on the corner for it?

I`m glad I quit as well, seemed quite a many of people quit right before LK released, but how many more joined? It`s funny that blizzard is unlike so many other companies when it comes to losing customers. tell ATT or any cable or phone provider you are cancelling service and they will start throwing promos your way to get you to stay, while WoW just says, "Sorry you decided to quit".

Ironically, someone reading the article that never experienced the game would probably want to try it.

Holy ass... I never thought that being a real wow nerd would be that sad. I`ve tried the game but I still prefer going out, perhaps drive around a bit or somesuch activity than playing wow, it was kinda boring anyway

And just what the drat is wrong with being nerdy, bitch? Being a nerd is awesome, and way better than more popular things to be like, for instance, a retarded whore like the celebrity in your avatar.

Sorry if this comes across as mean or offensive but I tend to take offense when someone tells me that I should be kicked in the drating dick for being nerdy.

P.S. WoW drating SUCKS ASS! I`m nerdy for other reasons. :P
