My Wife is disabled, and I would agree, that mmo games can be a total waste of time & life, however I have to say that these games also supply enjoyment, for people, as you dont get judged, for being in a wheelchair.. if you follow me here.. to many times, I've seen people cross the road, or look away.. Lame maybe, but im afraid alot of people are like that. In game she can be whoever she likes, with knowone any the wiser..

Ho.. I should add, my hobbies inclued Jumping off mountains, with some silkfabric above my head.. Hoping I hit a good thermal.


Jumps of the box.

MMO's are for the online sociability. I made a LOT of friends on WoW. Just like our chatbox on WatercoolingUK. Except I can kill people with ridiculously powerful fireballs and pyroblasts. Which is fun!

I can't stand going to the pub all the time, there's nothing fun about it, too many idiots that think that just cos they're capable of causing trouble, they will and do.

I'd rather play a game with hundreds of like minded people who all enjoy the same thing.

Of course the die hard hardcore raiders spoil it too. As well as the gold farmers and grief parties. But that's another story.

absolutely. it's total escapism as well as great for social interaction with likeminded fellows. Albeit,you may have to contend with the occational 13 year old making pen*s jokes but on the whole it's good, clean harmless fun.

Check out the youtube show the Guild funny and in some ways surprisingly accurate about hardcore raiders ;)

This thread has taken a very profound turn, but i think its much needed as MMO'ers get alot of stick!

Unless you have played it and got adicted, you cant really comment, its easy to say "go out more" blah blah blah, but what if you are really insecure and got bullied at school and dont really have anyone you can "go out" with.

Wow offers somthing that people in this possion hold on to because it does not matter about race, looks and popularity.

One example, my best mate has been playing wow with me for years now, we both got in to a guild and made many friends, we got really friendly with one guy, made an arena team etc etc, after about a year we found out he was a guy we know from school who we never talked because he sat on his own in the library every day. Strang eh? I now go over his house quite alot and like to take him out with me. Propaint met him at I34 :)

Wow gives sociability (if thats even a word) to some people that real life cant!

So dont be so quick to moc, just because you lucky enough you have friends you can do all this with.

Guys that's enough. I play WoW and i've had enough of this being turned into an argument by narrow minded players / non-players alike.

welshD1k, friend you need to calm yourself, you're extremely defensive on this subject and while I can appreciate that, it has blinded you to the truth that some people simply do not understand the point of an MMO or that they do understand but are taking the pee just cos they can. Relax a little, step back a bit and see it for what it is before it ruins friendships here. Hope you're ok mate.

Freshage, since this post has been moved to 'off the wall' i'd like to see all the other non watercooling related threads moved here, so of course the post counter isn't abused on any subject rather than singling out 'warcraft' related conversations.

Cheers.

I think of my woman being an undead lock. She sucks the very life from my soul destroying me slowly... ROFL.

Although, she could be a GM. As she can swap classes. I think mostly she's a rogue. Hiding then hitting me with a kidney shot.

ho ho what fun!
