    So Gravity over at pwnwear asked a question in his blog, and I’d like to address it here. He wrote a post about whether or not you play games other than WoW.

    I wondered, how unusual am I? The best comparison would be to others in my circumstance: married with kids and a responsible job, do you play other games with any seriousness?

    I’m in a similar circumstance to Gravity. I’m married with kids, and have a full time job. My daughter is a 4th grader so we have all kinds of extra cirrciular activities she’s involved in like Soccer, Band, and Awana.

    I’ve been playing WoW for over 4 years now. In that time I haven’t really played any other games with any kind of seriousness.

    Now occasionally, I’ll fire up an old game I have like Civilization IV or Knights of the Old Republic. It’s like visiting an old friend for a while and those games are still fun even years after their release. I still fire up Madden 2008. Actually I would have kept playing and buying the new Madden every single year, but EA decided to stop making Madden for the PC. I guess they decided they didn’t need my money anymore.

    I play around a little bit with Warcraft 3 and Starcraft, but I’m so behind on those games that I just get dominated on Battlenet so I don’t play them much anymore.

    I’m pretty much a One Game Man these days. That may change in 2010, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

      Before WoW, I used to buy about 5 games a year. Since I started playing WoW, the only games I’ve bought are the expansions. Well, except I did just pick up Torchlight, but only because I was wanting a Diablo like experience and I couldn’t find my disk for Diablo II, but I don’t play it nearly as much as WoW. Maybe only one or two hours a week, if that.

      And, to put it in perspective, I’m a single female gamer, with no kids, so I can’t even blame my family – I’m just a bit of a WoW addict, and actually, my guild is very much like a family to me. And, yes, contrary to popular belief, women do play WoW. In fact, my guild is probably 40 – 50% female (of the active players), which is apparently unusual, but nice.

      I play Portal once in a while, and Halo PC (the original, in solo campaign mode) several times a week, but otherwise it’s “All-WoW, All The Time”

      I’m married, one wife, 7 indoor cats, 3 outdoors (the house is full. VERY full), no kids at home, although my oldest son is technically Guild leader for my raiding guild (I am leader of the leveling guild). As you can imagine, I really have no time for more than one game.

      My situation is a little different. I don’t classify my self as a gamer. But one of my earliest memories as a child is; “I’m never stopping two things; watching cartoons and playing video games.” That sounds hardcore but hey I was 5.
      I grew up an only child and as a backhanded slap from unwitting family members they would give me board games for presents(bday& Christmas). I love board games but no one to play them with. Try playing 80’s version of Trivial Pusuit with a grandmother who is on yhe fringes of deminsia.
      Anyway I was introduced to D&D while I was in elementary school and was fascinated. But I was still in the same rat trap….no one to play with.

      Fast forward 20 some years and WOW comes out. I’m married, no kids, but I travel all the time and hours are sometimes in question. But for me WOW is THE ONLY thing that tickles all my fantasies. Im sure there are other mmos out there but I’m not risking it to find out.

      WOW has the fantasy element, can be played for 5 minutes or 5 hours, solo or in groups, with someone or against someone…….it has everything that “I” need. So to answer the question….No I don’t play any other games(I’m writing this while my server is down for maint.)
