The Most Addicting Game Ever

I played World of Warcraft for about 5 years before i stopped. if you have not played it before, i suggest not playing it. when you really get intense into the game, it will take over your life. it took over mine for a very long time. Hense the term "World of Warcrack". Don't get me wrong, it is an AMAZING game, which is why it is extremely addicting. Raiding, getting geared up, gaining rep with factions, mastering dungeons, its all very fun, but takes a hell of a lot of time do to. This game is a never ending grind, wheter it is acheivements or gear, there will always be something to do. So once again, i reccomend not getting into the game if you have not already. it is extremely addciting and hard to stop playing. Have you been addicted to World of Warcraft??

I was addicted to playing World of Warcraft mainly for the people that I was friends with. I had many people that I would talk to and go on quests and things with. I was the leader of a guild as well until my account got stolen. I don't miss the gaming aspect of it, but I do miss the companions that I had throughout the game working together as a team to reach achievements or play silly games like hide and seek where we would hide in one map and the friends had to find us. I used to give hints to were I was to help them find me. It was fun.

I am playing it again now and ever since i played it, I have never been addicted to it. I play and always bare in mind to put other things first before WoW. I should say, if you play this game, you have to be responsible. Don't put everything left behind just for a game. I played a while ago but stopped when I saw some topics here that I wanted to respond to..got to pass by your post and interests me. I honestly haven't geared my toons yet but I am trying on getting to it. Geared one with PVP but not cata yet, just the ruthless. Hopefully I will get to it even without being addicted to the game. Balance and being responsible is the key here.

I think the key to playing the game and not being addicted is limiting yourself and only playing for a certain amount of time. I played on a regular basis because I had friends I talked to all the time in the game. I stopped playing and don't have the urge to play, but do have the urge to talk to my friends, I miss them.

I've been... two times. Always between the end of school and the beginning of summer, probably because of a lack of will in continuing to study. I never played alone, however, there always were some real life friends to share my addiction with.

To be honest I'm not gonna agree with you.. It's your fault not the game's fault.. No offense but I've played this game for 6 years. I've managed to be relatively good geared in pve and pvp, close to end game, close to the top with achievements, always ready for any new expansion, raiding a lot and also making friends from other countries that came by, i went to them for holidays, knew a lot of people i talk to over the internet. Above all that I was in college which is now close to graduating with high grades (architecture - 6 years) and also had a part time job (4 hours/day). I've done all of those every day for 6 years and I'm not superhuman. I know at least 3 or 4 other people like me. And even more close to the situation, more or less. It's about how each and every one is able to balance everything in their life. It's not addictive if you don't see it more than like a night out with friends. You either go or not, you either play or not, depending on the time you have available, the need and wish for it.. The game is great, it's fun, it's social, it's challenging.. I love it and it doesn't run my life as it never did.

This game is a lot of fun. Other games like it are EverQuest and Guild Wars. It just depends what you like. If you're tired of RPGs, you could try strategy games like Starcraft2 and Age of Empires. Also try out the Call of Duty series. It's a FPS and its awesome. You don't have play for hours and hours unless it's the weekend or something like that. Take things in moderation.

My younger brother was heavily into World Of Warcraft. He was awesome at it and I started liking it. He talked me into making an account and I started playing. I loved it, and I played it everyday for a while. After about a year or so, we moved and I haven't played it since. I would love to play it again. It's a great game and even though it can be addictive I do recommend it. My brother also made Private Servers for WOW and it was awesome. Just me, him, and a couple friends in a world running around killing stuff and leveling up. That game was amazing. I'm definitely going to try to play it again someday.
