Ive been nagged with the question "Do I play WoW?" so many times I wanna punch them out, find a chick, some friends, a life, or all of the above....

If you cant hold a Job cause you wanna play WoW and bludge while wasting Taxpayers money then thats fine, just dont expect to make friends out of a "Game"..

End of rant..
that is the way it is these days, I grew up on a healthy diet of Wolfenstein, Crime wave, Commander Keen.

Then I leveled up to DOOM and the likes Quake I/II then Unreal then UT and so on an on.

WOW really does make a mockery of what PC gaming once was, well that and COD and all the little 10 an 12 YO's.

Ahaha I grew up on Worms 2 in the 2000's, then when I got a Celeron D computer I was into driving games like Ford Racing 3, Juiced Original, GTR, GTR2..

Doom was the shiz...

WoW, CoD just made PC into a profit gouging system imo, Buy 2 Month Game card for $60, Buy 3 Maps for $15, Buy Weapon unlocks on BC2 $8....


BTW I thought PC attracted the "Mature Gamers" well atleast in BC2 anyways.... Ive played against people with Wifes and 2 Kids sorta Blokes and they were fun to play with then I came across the BO community and my God it was horrible, noobs raging through crappy mics with there pre Puberty voices...

I took Black Ops back after 3 days..... The S*** console port, the community, the buy this map pack for $15 mentality...

You think BO was a crap port, have a raz on Aliens vs Predator, my mate MR Jonny Death Weed finished it in 15 Hrs. Sad I know, but that is all the PC industry is going to hold for us. I am shattered because I loved the first one back in 1999.

So you could imagine how livid I was to find out that CRYSIS II was going to consoles, not to mention how much consoles have held the PC gaming community back.

I have upgraded to my second set of DX11 cards (5770's then 6870's) and the only game that made full use of them yet is AVP.

Yeah tell me about it... Sucks at times on PC but Crysis going to console??
I dont play Crysis but on a High end rig the graphics are awesome...

Im on my third DX11 card too.. also on my 4th Card..

9600GT, 5750 (Broke it within 3 days -.-''), 5750 (OC likes crazy), GTX460 Current..

The thing I find funny about people is that they will bash people who play WoW for buying an expansion pack once every 2 years, or pay $15 a month to play, but will buy the new Madden every year, or new FPS every other month even though they are all EXACLTY the same.

Irony at it's best I tell ya.

What else is funny is that WoW is way more supported thatn any of these FPS that come out today. There are constant updates.

I am married, have a kid, work full time and have a good life outside of WoW and yet i still manage to tank for one of the top guilds on our server.

Not everyone who plays wow is a loser who has no life. Gotta love the stereo types that people come up with just because their friends had no self control.

Blame the people with the addiction, Not the game developers for making a good product.

4.7 mil copies? Does that include digital sales through the Blizz site? That's where I bought mine.

Either way, I used to bandwagon hate on WoW too, until I started playing, and I thoroughly enjoy it. Started playing while I was in the service. Now I'm working on a degree in Physics and still play a few times a week, usually between D&D games lol.

And contrary to popular belief, I'm not fat (6'3" 225), I've been laid many times, and I don't play for 14 hours a day.

I lol @ people who rip on WoW/other MMORPG's. Honestly if some people find the game fun then I don't see what the problem is. FPS isn't the only genre.
