Summer is coming up and I have most of it planned out. Work, Swim, Box, and Party. But I would also like to fit in some gaming in there. I play a lot of Gears of War now but it’s getting somewhat boring and repetitive. There are some Gears tournaments that I’d like to join but I am not able to form a team that can compete at tournament levels. And there are no games that I am looking forward to this summer. So I’m thinking of joining a game with an established community and with a good gaming record. Enter: World of Warcraft.
The last MMO I played was Everquest 2. I found this game very fun and I never got to the point where I rather play the game then go out with my friends. I felt the $15 a month charge was perfectly acceptable since the game was so fun.
I don’t really recall why I stopped playing. I think it was just because I didn’t have access to my computer for a couple months.
I never jumped back in and since last year, all I’ve been hearing about in terms of MMOs is World of Warcraft.
Now, I’ve heard plenty of stories about how it’ll consume your life and ruin your relationships and make you quit your job and will make you lose/gain 50 pounds. But I’m wondering how it is as a game.
What is there to do? What is there to do when you max out your character’s level? How annoying are the server down times? How annoying are the people? Is the monthly fee justified? Will a softcore gamer be able to enjoy the game? Is it too late to get in the game?
Any extra points anyone wants to make will be appreciated. Pros and Cons to getting the game will also be appreciated.
