Hello, my name is Shawn and I'm a complete MMO addict. I play World of Warcraft far more than a healthy peson should. However, despite this addiction, I do happen to have a social life with my friends. Thanks in part to having a flexible schedule with more free time than most, and the fact that my friends are gamers as well. LAN parties are always a blast, and we've even gathered together to play WoW. It's a lot more fun when you're in the same room with the people you're playing a game with, although using a voice chat program like TeamSpeak or Ventrilo provides about the same experience.
Do I plan on stopping or curbing my MMO addiction? Not in the slightest. Yes, I fully admit I'm addicted, but it isn't negatively impacting my life, other than I just don't have much time for as many other games I would like. But I'm having fun and don't mind paying a monthly fee for my entertainment, so it all works out. MMO's are my games of choice because I love being immersed in another world. Not that I need to escape the real world, but its just fun in the same way reading a good fantasy novel lets you escape into an exciting world.
Right now I play WoW, but I might start playing Lord of the Rings Online. One MMO I KNOW I'll be playing is Warhmmer Online. I love the Warhmmer universe and would love to play an MMO in that setting. Mythic has a good track record as I believe they did a splendid job on Dark Age of Camelot. So I'm highly looking forward to Warhammer. But I will have to pick and choose what MMO's I play. There is simply just too many of them being released to actually play them all.
If only I had even more free time and money! lol.
