Should I Play World of Warcraft?

Postby The Name of Our Great Leader » Wed Sep 28, 2022 2:53 am

Here's the thing: I love video games. Absolutely adore them. However, MMOs have never really seemed like my cup of tea. Recently, I was browsing YouTube and came across an old classic: LEEEEROOOOYYY JEENNKKIIINSSSSS. Obviously I wet myself laughing (it's impossible not to), and thought "man, this seems like a game with real community spirit". I know that this is an old video, but couldn't help but wonder if the game is still like this.

Now, here's some personal backstory. I now have a lot of free time on my hands (my place of work burnt down (not my fault lol) and I got a pretty neat severance package (made redundant)) and was thinking of picking up WoW, but I thought I thought I'd come here to ask some likeminded individuals their opinion first as it seems to be a pretty big timesink.


Thanks :D
I <3 my wife

It's a nice game, try it and see for yourself. Some games are for you some are not, WoW is actuallly pretty nice if your in to that type of game. I have played it in the past and it was fun mainly because I had a lot of friends playing it, for me that makes it automatically more exciting and fun.

The game and writing has gone fairly downhill tbh.
The feminism that only exists in feminists heads is real, and the feminism that impacts society isn't real.

Do you plan on staying together with your wife? If no, then go ahead and play it.

Hi!

General is actually not the place to ask for advice on stuff like this. I've towed this topic to A&F because the topic revolves around a video game, but you aren't really supposed to dedicate an entire thread to just ask for advice.

This seems more like a topic to bring up in one of our chat threads, so in the future if you feel like having a light-hearted chat or need some input from folks, I'd invite you to post there. There's a lot of friendly folk there :)

To give you my opinion: I've played WoW for about a year or two. It's a fun timesink but nothing special from an RPG/Storyline perspective (it's very convoluted, especially if you're jumping now). Just make sure you don't get too addicted and think twice before you spend too much of your money.
