Remember My Cousin’s Friend?
So a few days ago I mentioned that I was at my cousin’s house playing video games like we always do and his cousin lost his job at this place because of playing too much World of Warcraft:
Well I happened to be hanging out with him and my cousin today and of course we didn’t really talk about much aside from video games and to my surprise, he claims to have quit WoW. Admitting you have a problem is always the first step right?
Not so Fast
You would think that would be the end of his video gaming right?
He continues to explain that yes he did indeed quit WoW because he lost his job, but started playing Diablo 3 instead because it isn’t as “addicting.”
Whatever you need to tell yourself buddy…
So I already talked about how WoW has pretty much ruined any other RPG game for me because they just simple cannot compare. I will say though that if I had to choose one, it would definitely be the Diablo series.
It was kind of the same style but it was more based on working together with friends or yourself, as opposed to primarily player vs. player. There is definitely an element of addiction that comes with the game but there really kind of is an end to the game at a point, whereas you could literally play WoW forever and never beat it and never get bored.
I didn’t really talk about the PvP aspect that I love so much. I’ll touch on that tomorrow.
