WoW: OH GOD RUN AWAY [Jun. 8th, 2009|09:14 pm]
So Greg & Jerry have started playing World of Warcrack.

And I have been persuaded to give it a shot as well.

Now, there are two things to know about this game. First, there is a lot of running from place to place. A LOT of running. The game is as much about exploring the territory as it is about fighting the bajillions of monsters that inhabit the territory. And the second thing is that, due to the aforementioned bajillions of monsters, eventually You Will Die. And when your character dies, you reappear as a ghost in a nearby graveyard. You can either get raised from the dead there (for a small penalty), or you can do some more running to get back to your corpse and not have a penalty.

So now you can appreciate Tale of Thargen, Brave Orcish HunterCollapse )

The question is, why is this so much fun?
