 I posted this on the mmochamp forums and thought it was one of those things i just had to share with the world as if I were some kind of non herp-derp player.

Referring to why we keep playing wow...

The people. Nethaera said something about where else would you get such a diverse community to come together and the truth is i really don't know. I've played with MDs, lawyers, PHD students as well as insurance claims adjusters, assembly plant workers, the unemployed, and a slew of college and highschool students. Men, women, young, old, it doesn't really matter because we're all enjoying ourselves under a common element. One of my best friends in game would probably hate me in real life because of the simple fact that our politics differ significantly, but we'll be on vent for 3 or 4 hours in an evening and even if subjects we disagree on do come up we can have an intelligent conversation over it. And thats the other thing that keeps me coming back. Despite the dimwitted and unintelligent, the trolls and white knights, there are a few diamonds in the rough that stand out and every time they speak I'm just awestruck at how amazingly intelligent they are. I joke but if you had a dozen of the most intelligent, common sensed, goal oriented people from each realm join together to create a think tank, they could save the world, if they weren't to busy saving Azeroth that is...

  1. It's true. I have found a lot of friends (and my current gf of 3 years) through WoW and other MMO's, and I keep coming back because of the community, not the game.

    However, the game isn't too shabby either.
