Do you think it is a waste of money to spend your real life money for computer games like, world of warcraft, stardoll, ect?

It depends, I might buy Star Wars: The Old Republic when it comes out. I usually don't like to pay for online games but I might just buy this one. It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

I am not a computer games person. Actually, I don't play a lot of computer games or playstation games or other kinds of games. My one weakness is just The Sims. Even with the The Sims games, I just borrowed the cd of my friend. I find games on Playstation, computers, etc. too expensive. I'd rather buy other stuff like shoes.

I do did waste money in online games before I knew this earning opportunity online. I do buy load in order to play online games but those day are over I grown up now and learn my lesson that they are just a waste of money.

Yes, I would. Games are a major source of R&R for me. However, money is not always going out of my pocket. There are instances that money does come back specially in MMORPGs where new players who want to keep up with the rank would go for real money trading which is deemed illegal for most. However, if they are your friends , a friendly price is expected.

The only thing I can say is it is much better not to get involve withcomputer games...lol well base on my experience once I get addicted I never stop on buying specially items that I will need (on the game) and I can find myself busy with the game and I never finish anything...lol but If thats makes you happy and if you know how to controll why not?

It depends. Some people may think as u. Others may think not. For example, think about a busy father who wants to keep his child busy. Video games have a high value for such person. However, about 90% of video games are pirated.

I wanted the sims new game since last year when it came out. I have not bought it yet being the price is still high. Yes it would be a waste of my money if I bought it now. I would play it so much and beat the board fast and be mad. I will go check ebay right now for it thats a good thing.

hmmm this is a rather good question but the thing is see i would buy a computer game like WOW but then i would get addicted to it and then like sort of not go out much and stuff become like a computer geek lol but in the end lifes too short and do whatever makes you happy so for me computer games entertain me so i would say yes buy the game :)
