I hate WoW. It's true, you can't blame the game for the crap people do with it, but it's designed specifically to be so addicting. It really does screw people over.

However, in roleplaying, I'm more constrained by reality, so I make my choices more intelligently, also with more of an eye of my character. I play video games to have fun and discover worlds, with, hopefully, some good character interaction.
