The Addictive Properties Of World of Warcraft And The Road To Recovery

DualShockers writes,

"The average game can capture our interest and keep it for a certain amount of time, but usually games don't keep us from doing what is necessary to our everyday lives.

Very nice article. WoW is definitely an addicting game. The fact that Blizzard is always adding new content is what keeps players/fans engaged. That's why it's pretty difficult to remove them from their thrown.

A lot of other MMOs have made their way to the PC. None, however, has grasped players like WoW has. I wonder what it is that makes people so attracted to WoW when compared to other MMOs out there.

PRobably it's accessability. It appeals to just about every type of gamer out there, from the extreme hardcore to the most casual. No other MMOs have ever done that, no matter how hard they try. I have a feeling Blizzard will hold the top spot for quite a while to come.

I've been WoW free for about six months now, and I intend to stay that way. ;)

MMORPGs are so tough to stay away from, i was once a victim.
