    I used to be probably a little worse than this guy, but in Lord Of The Rings Online.

    I’ve heard a lot about WoW but I’ve never played it.

    “Battle of Wesnoth” is about as close as I’ve got to it.

    I spend HOURS in a B17 bombing the shit out of Berlin. It’s great fun.

    I use to love playing WoW but when they came out with only online games and the need to purchase time etc. I gave it up. Can only afford 1 or 2 hr late at night if I am lucky so what was the use of purchasing 1 months worth of time if I was only going to play 1 day, in total, at best. There are so many muppets out there playing this game 24/7; one wonders how they can afford to???
