I know guys that stay up until 3 in the morning to play it. I don't feel like getting addicted, so i'm staying away.

I saw a WoW map at Future Shop for twenty dollars. Twenty dollars. For a ******* map about a fictional place. What the ****.

Think that's ridiculous? People actually will pay 120 dollars to have a person play their character and level them up to level 70. Why play the game if you're going to pay someone else to play it for you

A guy I know was paid something like that for a weapon. He told me he was lucky to have found the weapon anyways.

Video games are nice and all, but if you are "addicted" to them (i know it is easy, but still 120 bucks wasted on some fictional game?) you have a problem.

Put down the controller and leave your home. If you don't have any friends, make some. It isn't that hard, just say, "High my name is....., and i can get beer." If that doesn't work, just go sit at a park or something.

I plan on buying this or the Star Wars equivalent once I get a new computer. I got the Star Wars one a few years ago and my computer's graphics card couldn't handle it, and at this point, my computer is like five or six years old and low on hard drive space, so it's not worth it to upgrade the graphics card when for another 400 bucks I can get a brand new computer (don't need the monitor or that crap) that's a million times better.

How is it a waste of money if you have fun playing it? I used to play, I just didn't think it was a whole lot of fun. As long as you don't make video games your life, there is no reason not to play them. I have a feeling some of you guys havent realized that you just need to be yourself and not worry about what is "cool." You can be a huge video game nerd and still have a social life. Hell, I built my own gaming computer, I post on countless message boards, and I still find time to go out, meet people, and get laid.

People who **** on other people because of games they play are just insecure little bitches who need to learn that just because something isn't seen as "cool" by the people they hang out with doesn't mean that people not in your group can do it and still be considered "cool" by many others standards.

I'm sure there are too. However, I'm not one of them. I think two of the biggest things that get people kicked out are WoW and online poker. Both are a lot more addictive than drinking for most university students.

I always told him that if he spent that time working out, or learing to play the piano, or whatever, he would be the most talented person in the world. It's cool to do things recreationally, everyone needs a release, but when it takes over your life that should tell you something.

I stay away from it because I have a tendency to get addicted sometimes. Like Socom. That **** is whack. I couldn't even sleep I was always so excited after playing it. I needed more. Luckily for me, my brother was even more addicted, so I wasn't playing at all times. Then my headset broke and I haven't touched it since.

They also have an original series called Sam & Max and if you ever get the chance to play it, it's ******* hilarious.
