If you've ever met some die hard WoW or MMORPG players in real life, you wouldn't have to ask

(no offence intended if you are one though... )

SEB pretty much nailed it. I have lost friends over MMORPGs because they become zombies.

My former brother-in-law became such a freak about it that he never left his bedroom. He had 3 kids and they never saw him. I'd go over to visit and he still wouldn't leave his bedroom. He'd sleep all day and be up on it all night. He lost his job and just played WoW for months on end. The only time he got up was to use the restroom a few feet away. He even made his wife bring him food in the room.

I got my daughter a Nintendo Wii for Christmas. She was complaining that she didn't have many games for it. So I mailed her a Blockbuster gift card to rent some games. What did she do with it? She went to Blockbuster and got candy and Wizard101 cards. What is Wizard101? It's a kids MMORPG. She's only 8 years old.

I loathe MMO games, really.

Not me. I can't justify paying $180 a year on top of the nearly $100 to actually buy the game (+ EPs), and then the roughly $115 a month for the FiOS Broadband just to be able to play it without hiccups and not to mention all of the hardware upgrades costing even more 100's every so often, and the risk of frying out computer components as the intensity of the demands on the system leech the life right out of the computer, very prematurely.

Before you know it, you'll be putting in $1,000's up for this one game that, in my opinion, should be essentially free to play after you've paid them through the nose just to buy the damn disks/software/license. Just MHO I'd imagine...

And no, I'm not suggesting that Blizzard shouldn't get their due worth... but I am saying, isn't the $50-70 per game X millions and millions and millions of people buying them enough for them to maybe, oh I don't know, support their OWN servers out of courtesy for their loyal "customers"?!

Nah... for me, they destroyed WoW. I'll stay with II BNE and III thanks.

I liked that dedicated WoW fanatics would justify the $15 per month cost as "maintenance on servers". It doesn't cost that much. WoW is just a cash cow for them and you have to be real gullible to pay $15 per month for a game.
