I'm not alone

From MacMerc:

About the only game that became so addictive for me that it started to negatively affect the other aspects of my life has been World of Warcraft. I came to the realization that I was spending too much time leveling up in my artificial, digital life and not nearly enough time achieving and contributing with my real life and I finally gave it up. I still miss it. Even though the quests were repetitive and meaningless, the learning of new and imaginative abilities, the interactions with other players, and the friendships I developed made the game very enjoyable.

Well said. This is why I have a 60 day game time card sitting at home, begging to be used. And to think I spent about $100 extra on my laptop to get a video card that would play WoW easily. *sigh* The trials of an addict.

Will Return Nov. 13th

It's called "Part-time" for a reason, I suppose. Man, you get a lot more free time when you're not playing, though seeing at least five laptops on WoW at the local coffee shop this evening didn't help the addiction much.

Inside Mac Games News: Wrath Of The Lich King Coming November 13th:
