Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Ever wonder how some people seem to be in the upper ranks of players? A good game and a lot of time on your hands can lead to some interesting results. I never ever played any game this much, but some of my friends might challenge me on that. Especially when it comes to my Halo and Halo 2 mad skillz.
Read http://soulkerfuffle.blogspot.com/2006/10/view-from-top.html when you get a chance. Scary... The story is of course about the game World of WarCraft (WoW). See http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/index.xml for the game site.
There is nothing new about addictive games. There was a lot of press about Everquest long before WoW shipped. See http://everquest.station.sony.com/ for information on that game.
I wonder how many people who used to play EverQuest are now playing World of WarCraft. Hmmm...
That is precisely the reason why I only play H2 once a week AND why I have moved Disk 1 of Civ4 to a inconvenient location. I won't pick up AoE and Halo Wars for the same reason.
I may be the worst H2 player on the 'Net, but at least my family knows what I look like!
Funny you should blog about this...I just started playing WoW and I'm hooked. Sad, sad, sad...but true.
Kai, did you start playing September 7th? :)
Strikes a cord with me. Tried WOW and went back to Everquest 2. Wow didnt do it for me. I Make sure I ration my time.
