World of WarCraft. A subscription based massive multiplayer online role playing game released by Blizzard in November 2004. It is currently the largest of its kind in the world with over five million subscribers world wide (over one million in the United States). After level 60, there is very little you can accomplish unless you schedule time to play daily. Many have fallen into the trap of playing this game, and needing to get that next piece of “1337” gear to impress “n00bs” in Ironforge.

In order to become powerful enough to dominate everyone in PvP combat without trying, you need to collect the most powerful raiding armor sets. This usually requires large guilds composed of mostly high school and college students/dropouts or fat unemployed people in their 40’s cursing and complaining and making gay references over Ventrilo or Teamspeak. There is often a point system, and a lot of drama involved in gaining gear. These guilds are rarely managed by anyone with any real marketable management skill.

Long term exposure to this game has hazardous side effects to ones life. Before you know it, your friend base starts shrinking. Your wife/girlfriend leaves. You become bitter, and play the game even more to escape while popping down your Prozac with lukewarm Mountain Dew. You had four jobs with periods of unemployment in the past year, and you live in your parents basement while posting up generalized, uncited, bias, unproven generalized and opinionated rants on some message board bitching about how something is out of balance. The few friends you have left (who all also play WoW) at your community college (which you have been in for 6 years only to stay on your parents insurance plan) use terms like DPS in real life conversations.

Most can greatly improve their life situation by quitting the game. It’s not so much of what the game does, but rather what it prevents you from doing while playing. Once liberated from WoW, those extra 30-120 hours a week can be put to productive use.
Yeah, Joe used to be the star quarterback. He also had a hot girlfriend, and a academic scholarship to Harvard. Now, he is in his mid 20’s still living at home always playing WoW. Almost never hear from him anymore.

World of Warcraft. A game which destroys any resemblance of a social life you possibly have. Consumed by this increasingly addictive game, all motivation for extra-curricular activities will be at rock bottom. The temporary happiness which provided an excuse to escape life's problems, will result in weight-gain causing increased acne problems, White skin pigment, friend loss, pathetic school grades, harassment from anyone you considered a friend, and a sense of failure in life. This failure is really accomplishment. This worthless sense of accomplishment furthers your drive to invest longer hours into a money-hungry system which will also make you noticeably bitter and selfish toward what friends remain loyal. This money-hungry anti-christ will provide nothing positive in return to your community or your physical and emotional state as a human being. You will eventually become depressed because you can't believe how much your life sucks. From pointless hours sitting infront of the computer, you could not possibly be a bigger loser than you ever thought you would become. After an extreme case of depression you half-heartedly retract from emptiness which is all you live for. Realizing such a violent addiction must cease immediately, you can only hope to rebuild the shattered fragments of existance you turned your back against, and re-kindle lost friendship which you hastily destroyed over a computer game which you thought would be more full-filling compared to what anyone in the real world has to offer.

WoW
Acronym for the game World of Warcraft, also known as the best male sex drive reducer on the planet. Not only does this game completely take over the users body in the sense that they never do anything else, it also lowers their sex drive to the point where they don't ever want to have sex! It has worked wonders on many couples who weren't experiencing the same sex drive. Woman all over the world love it.

wow
World of Warcraft. While yes, it does turn some people into obsessed losers that spend day in and day out in front of the computer; those people were douches anyway, and if Warcraft didn't do this to them, something else would. probably porn.
