If you have lots of spare time then yes

WoW is basically like having a job, playing the game is like working. so dumb

Yeah I've pretty much decided to just save the money to upgrade my computer for BF3. I just don't find this game to be very rewarding for the time put in.

No, stop, save yourself. Please. Do. Not. Start. Playing

Heres what playing WoW is like

run around for 5 hours collecting enough bark or whatever to craft a magic sword, then group up with a bunch of snobby xenophobes who will cry because you arent doing enough [insert Wow buzzword]. then run 20 miles to the next zone and collect flowers or gold dust from angry skeleton men. repeat 20000x with little to slight variation and attain a false sense of accomplishment until youre level 90 or w/e and have become a hollow shell of a person who cant interact with real people. ok peace lol

thats how people get addicted. they use it as "something to do" then once they invest so much time they feel attached to the game & feel that if they quit they have to face the harsh reality of how much time they wasted so it triggers a defense mechanism everyone has faced at some point, denial.

my advice, if you're going to play a mmo; never use it as a way to pass large chunks of time.

Hmmmm, I think the WoW uninstaller leaves all the game files behind because that was a really quick uninstall!

Single best MMORPG ever made. Nothing compared period until RIFT came out. WoW is an amazing game if it's what you like. I personally just quit after 5 years. I would go back if my friends were still there. Instead we made a CoD clan and started RIFT with my fiance. Anyway to get back on subject, try it out! It doesn't hurt to try imo.

Millions of people still play, and if you have fun with it $15 isnt much compared to what you'll save from playing all the time lol. I played for 6 years and got burnt out. Blizzard is secretly making there 2nd MMO no. Codename: Titan! Fantasy MMO's have been beat to hell and back. Visually WoW is lacking. SWTOR it seems is what alot of people are going to go to. But if your having fun, thats all that matters.

That'd be the WORSE choice you're about to make if you choose to start WOW. It's basically an addiction and people are struggling once they got started. If you want a life and a girlfriend, DONT even think about WOW...
