I'd say go for it. I have played sine it came out, and even though I have taken some breaks, I still find the game enjoyable.

It's a good game at moderation. Don't burn yourself out like I did. I used to be part of a hardcore raiding guild up through Ulduar, but after achieving Deaths' Demise and that legendary healing mace I felt like I had seen everything there was to see in the game, and quit (sorry guild!). Had I been a casual gamer for only a few hours a week I'd probably still be playing. Wait, I'm not sure that is a good thing.

In any case, it's been so long that I've played I have zero interest in WoW anymore. I'm looking forward to SWToR, just until Guild Wars 2 comes out. GW2 is the only polished MMO on my radar that isn't trying to be a reskinned WoW.

Quote:
If you are a newcomer I wouldn't bother at this point. Wow's heyday is long gone.
I find it the exact opposite. I quit because I found the game stagnant (every content patch is the same old mechanics but reskinned), but then I had been playing since the beginning. Newer players who have never experienced WoW should find it plenty entertaining, especially if they play casually and don't burn themselves out on the extremely repetitive content.

Now? No.

4 years ago? Yes.

If you have an extremely addictive personality you're going to have problems with any good game. I played WoW for years, always casually, and always had fun with it. But like I said, haters hate because the addictive types are the ones always broadcast and shown around as the example.

I don't play anymore, but I also have 3 kids now, so yeah.
