Jimmy the Greek writes, "in view of the WOW expansion The Wrath of the Lich King, I feel it is my duty to blow hate all over MMORPGs like a zit on a mirror, or load on a porn star's face..."
Judging by the blurb, looks like we're ready for family reading time!
He definitely knows how to make me feel all warm and squishy inside!
im rated r, and sometimes nc-17. then there are the times im rated xxx.
"I feel it is my duty to blow hate all over MMORPGs like a zit on a mirror, or load on a porn star's face..." How does a zit hate on a mirror? And how does a load hate on a porn star's face? It would make more sense if he said "I feel it is my duty to blow hate all over MMORPGs like 360 fanboys does on PS3 fanboys, or Hiphopgamer does on R2 reviewers..." I just stoped reading there because this was very stupid and poorly writen imo.
WoW is one of those habits that scares me away from even starting them. I think I will just wait for the Star Wars MMO
mmos are a dangerous beast. very addictive
It all depends. I play MMO working, having a life, reading, watching TV, having friends etc. You can play maintaining your life. It's similar to drinking alcohol or smoking weed. If you do it wisely, it won't change you. BTW, author writes "MMOs" but mentions only WoW which makes some points totally invalid.
Holy freaking crap, the estimate that they've made around 4 BILLION in subscription fees...that just blows my mind.
Blizzard makes more then the GDP of many countries!
I hate the fact that Activision are taking their sweet time to reveal the Ps3 MMO they've been working on with Blizzard
Agreed, about damn time they announced something!
Sounds like this guy was addicted at some point to WoW, or another MMO. Ending up in loosing something very special to him. Mostly because he was a tool. And judging from his article... he still is! People can spew their hatred toward games all they want. MMOs aren't going anywhere but up. They'll be around for years to come. What I want to know, if he's having sex with his wife... but chooses to waste time on a topic that obviously means nothing to him. Is the sex with her all that great? She's bored and cheating me thinks.... ...HOLY CRAP!! I got it. His wife plays MMOs. That's where his hate is coming from. So when she is having sex with him.. is it him in her mind. Or that little Gnome. I bet she would pay for him to have plastic surgery and get elf shaped ears.
i dont play mmos and neither does the missus. we have dressed up like elves, gnomes, trolls, superman/lois lane, the likes for purposes of sex.
Hmm.. so what can be considered more dangerous? Role playing in a game as beefed up, muscle-bound man built like a brick sh!t house? Or doing so in real life risking an aneurysm, hernia or worse?
im gonna go out on a limb and suggest youre a virgin. the answer to that question is pretty clear if you werent. sex, or video games... hmm i cant make up my mind... id rather have sex of course
Sex or video games wasn't the question. Here let me re-word it for you. Which is more dangerous? Role playing in a game, as a super strong person. Or doing so in real life, doing something you may not be fit to do, risking injury. The sex part really had nothing to do with it. More of, what you are doing while role playing.*Which wasn't really directed to you. More directed to the general thought of the RP lifestyle* You have about as much backing behind thinking I'm a virgin. As I do thinking you're really not married... Not that it matters either way.
"Before you say, "Jimmy, I play MMORPGs and I'm not grossly overweight," first stop and think how much of a sh*t I actually give about you." imagine how much we give a sh*t about this blog...
Yes we all know that MMO's are addictive but not everyone becomess obsesed by them. I play WoW now (for lack of a better one) and am waiting for the new starwars MMO which will be awesome as anything made by bioware is by guarrenteed to be fun at worst. I balance playing on WoW as well as taking a Degree in Chemistry along with an active social life. Yes some MMO palyers live in front of the screen, but we are not all like that P.S. If anyone in my party even thinks about using leet speak they will be kicked faster than Usain Bolt on crack
what mindless rant about the worstcase that can happen to very instable person, guess what douche, 80% or more are casual gamers with active social lives. i play wow yes, and i have a job and friends i go out cook nearly daily, etc. etc. and i am lvl 70 and bought wow lichking today. so what just because the author is a undiscipled geek, doesnt mean everyone would get lost in an mmo.
the article sounds more like a rant then anything else possibly expressing his own experiences with WoW perhaps? i'll admit that i got taken in by a certain MMO (not WoW) but when it Was CLEARLY pointed out to my by my family the affects it had on me i cut my time on it
Seriously what's wrong with these people who stay up for 50+ hours the night Lich King comes out... haha Amazing, I'd understand it if they were like 12 yr's old on summer vacation but these are grown men with jobs... Al-be-it probably in their parents basement but still!
they are too nerd for me haha
