Probably THE best MMORPG on the market today, and will continue to be for some time. It has a great combination of PVE/PVP content and is updated fairly consistently. The next expansion is due out (hopefully) sometime this year.

The one killing flaw of this game, however, is the community; it's the reason nobody's bothered curing cancer. You will NEVER find a ruder, more condescending group of arrogant, elitist jackholes than in WoW, and on any WoW-related message boards in particular. You ask a simple question, and a dozen of them start blasting you for something completely unrelated, such as the quality of your gear. Of course that's assuming you even get a MEANINGFUL response from them to begin with.

In-game is hit-or-miss, too. You'll find plenty of decent people that play casually most of the time, but other times you'll either have to deal with some pipsqueak 10-year-old with a microphone or one of the elitist jackholes above; both take the game WAY too seriously, and both will make you wish there were laws that keep these kinds of people from breeding.
You want an example? Go to the World of Warcraft boards at http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/child-forum.html?forumId=11119&sid=1 , pick a realm, and lurk around. You'll want to play some polish roulette immediately afterwards.

Jesus Christ, honestly, this game is perhaps the worst incarnation of addiction ever invented - unlike drugs, which affect you physically, you get high, this affects you mentally. You get hooked by getting a free demo, what the hell eh? it's only $2.00... Then you play... and you don't stop.

It essentially awards you for running around in an imaginary world, whilst your addiction grows IRL <- Wowspeak. You are engrossed with beating this thing. You are rewarded a piece code, are accepted by new friends (all addicts by the way) Oh and did I mention these rare items are rare - As in it's like gambling like a slot machine, you're playing for a chance to acquire a rare item in the game - which may or may not drop in a certain location. So essentially, every minute you waste is a a few cents given to Blizzard the Company.

The addiction is hard to beat, because you become engrossed with trying to hit the level cap. It honestly takes 48 hours - 2 weeks of not playing to jump start you back into real life... You'll come to realize that in WOW you were essentially doing four things over and over, without ever really advancing. Buyer be ware, you will become addicted.

NOTE:
Methods for escaping addiction (A Guide from personal experience):
1. Run out of Money - but still can't get fix, you either do something desperate or illegal. If you still need fix go to private server.
2. Play until something breaks and stop.
3. Stop playing.

Literally, you need 48 hours for the withdrawl to settle.

Most WoW gamers lose touch base with their real life. And need to find it. Playing on a Private server will speed up the addiction process resulting in:

- Finding out how quick the game can be
- How useless it is/Monotonous.
- Ultimately Saved Time (you level faster so instead of wasting a year to hit 60 you do it in a week.)

Also I should mention, that the only people who don't bash WoW, you lay anti claims to those who are against WoW, are World of Warcraft Players themselves, and thus addicted. They cannot see what they are becoming, ignorant to everyone's help and what really is going on.
My friend had an 89 Average and was a shoe-in for an Ivy League University... He got World of Warcraft... He dropped out of applying, and lives at home with his parents. He has 5 Level 70's...

HM: "What the hell do you guys do?"
MW: "We play World of Warcraft, why what do you play?"
HM: "I play a little thing called real life..."

A mmorpg that weak minded people get addicted to and once addicted they will become a fat sociopath living in their mom's basement who piss in a cup and shit in a bucket, this is because they are unable to move due to them been consumed by the huge mass of body fat.
Addicted and Fat Wow Player: "Mom can you empty my cup and bucket for me?"

Disappointed Mum: "You really should stop playing that game and get a life"

Addicted and Fat Wow Player: "But World of Warcraft is my life"

Disappointed Mum: (Sound of the house door slamming)

World of Warcraft is THE most addicting game EVER, but doesn't completely take away your life until you start playing 5h+ a day. I personally have played it for over a year. When you first get WoW it seems really exciting, but as you continue pllaying I found it became quite tedious.

I recently stopped playing. Last year I was a complete nerd, had no friends, yet managed acheiving high A's in all my subjects. I noticed when I stopped playing as much my social skills improved and I even got a bf, but i'm now failing 2 subjects(0.o)

That said wow effects diff ppl in diff ways and you shouldn't go just on one person's expirience to decide if you want to play or not
Around the time I started playing, a man died for playing World of Warcraft for 72 hours strait without sleep, hydration, or nuetrition
