Yes, ashamed as I am to admit it, I am guilty of effectively pissing away three years of my life playing Blizzard’s hugely successful online role-playing game World of Warcraft.
Now, I have never really been a fan of Massively Multi-player Online (MMO) games. I play games online from time to time, but I usually prefer the single player, story- and character- driven experience. EVE, Star Wars Galaxies and others never managed to suck me in, but for some reason WoW kept me interested. This week I wanted to try and work out what it was that made WoW different.
