WoW != Romantic Relationships

So says Digg (or at least a commenter).

For what it’s worth, my wife respects my burgeoning WoW habit so long as it doesn’t infringe on our Lost and Grey’s Anatomy-watching (yes, I went there).

Also, actually playing the game for hours on end has delayed the next installment of Tales of a Wow n00b. Stay tuned.

    I think the real lesson of this statement is that digg commenters are idiots. I mean seriously, read a little of the digg “community” and you quickly learn that digg is about good for headlines and nothing much else. Sad, it didn’t used to be that way. They’re up there with YouTube comments these days.

    My wife chose to join me in Azeroth and we have a great time playing together. Been a great experience for us both. Ignore digg, as usual, only the link is useful.

    My husband and I play together. In fact, when he’s overseas and phone calls are insanely expensive (much more so than hotel internet connectivity) we often get together online and play so we get to actually *do* something together while he’s gone. Playing together for 2+ years… and it’s never caused us a single problem.

    Hmm, what was wrong with that comment?

    WoW is such an incredible force that needs to take steps in order to change the perception of not just WoW players but Video Game players in general.

    Of course, you can sit and ignore my piece of advice.

    Agreed with Tom – the only good things about Digg these days are the links, naturally.

    I bought my girlfriend WoW for Valentine’s Day the year it came out, and she and I have both been addicted since. In fact, I wish she’d slow down with the alts a little bit to let me keep up. :D

    I agree with everyone on here. Maybe I should have put a question mark in my post title to add to the humor and properly define my sentiment.

    I LOVE the game and I’ve found, more than any other game I’ve played, a real sense of camaraderie and friendship there. It really is a community and I can definitely see relationships, even romance, occurring there.

    Not a romantic relationship… but my husband and I met several people in our guild who turned out to live nearby, and who’ve become some of our closest friends. We visit, play tabletop games, have dinners together, go to concerts… It’s a lot of fun. And since we live an hour and a half away from the family we’ve become closest to (yes, a whole family–the father and both of his kids play Wow, and the wife plays tabletop with us), WoW makes a great place to meet up more regularly, like for an hour after work.
