First time listener here. regarding WoW, I have seen some of my friends play it and it looks ok, but unfortunately I haven't played it, I'm affraid I might get addicted to the game (like my friends), and I just don't know if the monthly subscription is worthy, but I might give it a try

I've never played WoW for fear of my life going down the toilet of video game addiction. But my brothers play now, so I guess I could rationalize it to keep in touch with them.

As for your couch? Maybe you could pile up xbox 360 shipping cartons to fill the hole.

BTW, the xbox live situation is infuriating. I don't have a 360, just the big old black and green POS, and haven't been able to play halo 2 in weeks. The DLC stuff would make it even worse.

I have been playing World of Warcraft for almost 2 years now. The reason for starting up is because several friends of mine kept urging me to try the game. Even before I ever started, I thought I would hate this type of game. I was into FPS games before (ex. Counterstrike ) and never would have picked this up if it wasn't for my friends.

WoW has it's ups and downs, but the only real reasons for me to keep playing is the invention of the Arena system and widespread popularity of the game. If you have never played WoW, the Arena system is basically the Player vs. Player aspect of the game, which has me attached to it because of the new competition that it has brought up. PvE content only goes so far for me as I've seen almost all the game has to offer in that aspect, but PvP is what has kept me playing.

The other reason that attracts me to the game is the popularity of the game. At my High School, there is a large group of people that actually play WoW, some you would suspect that they would never be caught playing a video game. This is great because I've made great friends with people that I probably would have never met otherwise.

World or warcraft was a great game when I first layed my eyes on it. I would go to my friends house and be there 24/7 sleep overs and everything. I even ended up buying a crap computer and used it to play in his basement with him. We played for HOURS we did quests and leveled. The addiction level was through the roof! Then I asked myself If I was really going to pay monthly for this game. After about 4 days of thought I decided it was not worth paying MONTHLY for. So I went out and bought a game at BestBuy. Before I mention the next part you should know that I really only play online games to play ONLINE. Anyways, I went to best buy and saw Counter Strike 1.6 on sale, thinking that it would be an OK game I bought 2 of them gave one to my friend and we still play to this day (Source though). The point of this is that I did not buy/play WoW because although it was extremeley addicting it the monthly price was too much for a MMORPG. Seeyeah Later!

I've never played WOW before because we had dialup that would only connect at 24.6 on a good day, usually got 21.6. Cable or DSL is not available and we found out we are in the Spring EVDO network and now have had wireless broadband for a few weeks now. Now that we have a great connection I'd be willing to try out WOW and see what its all about. (not to mention it opened up the Xbox Live and Wii Shop Channel floodgates.)

Why are Mr. T and William Shatner are on tv commercials for this game?
If its free, its for me!!



    Too many games...

How about a hammock between the couches?

I installed WoW once from a free trial disc but never played much. I think it took longer for me to install, download the patches and update than the time I actually played. I liked Warcraft III though so I could see myself playing more if I put some time into it.

I have played WoW on trial with my family actually, my uncle and cousins kinda got me sucked into it so... yeah. and about the couch thing, you should totally get a gaming chair with speakers and put it up on a platform to be even with the couches and yeah use it when you game.

I've never played the WOW games. Everyone says the suck the importance out of all other aspects of life, leaving WOW to be the only thing left. Terrifying.

I have always wanted to play WoW because i had an addicted roommate who got kicked out of college playing it. The gf is against it but I say it is my life and I am gonna take a stand.

For the couch situation...put one couch behind the other and raise the back one...instant leveled seating.

I had to ditch WoW for college as well, so this would be the perfect opportunity to get old characters back into fighting shape and try out the BC content

Yes, I have played World of Warcraft. I actually have a subscription right now. I like it, not as hardcore as some people though. My highest is a lvl31. I play on and off.

And double sided tape.

I've played World of Warcraft and recently (December) activated my account from the trial again. I only have a 47 mage at the moment and would love to win the expansion.

I've never actually played the game even though I'm a huge Blizzard fan. Something about paying for a game more than once always rankled me. However, if I snag this swank copy for free, I'm gonna bite the bullet, pick up the original and sign up.

I used to play all the time. I used to raid and I loved it. I was in a guild that was the first on my server to kill C'Thun, the legendarily ridiculous boss of AQ40. I like the raid aspect of the game the most.

never tried world of warcraft, but if I win, I'll buy the first wow, and give both of them to my brother. Why? because he is the biggest runescape player ever. If I pay for the first month or so, I'm sure he'll pay the rest, and I can say goodbye to the monstrosite that is runescape

I haven't played WoW because I've always been afraid of it taking over my life...but, for free, perhaps that's the price the pay for giving up my life. I'd give it a shot.

I use to play wow hardcore until it took over my life. Then I quit for about 8 months but recently started playing again casually. Not having to buy the expansion would rock!

I played WoW for over a year and a half with a large group of friends that I have known for 8 years now. We met in EQ1 back in 2000 and were in one of the top guilds on our server there for years. When WoW rolled around we were ready for something new.

We spent some time on one server for quite a while but eventually people either stopped playing or went to other servers to play with real life friends. In the end there were about 6 of us left and we started on a new PVP server as Horde. We met some new people and spent 3 months building the top guild on the server. Three of us were officers and things were going swimmingly, but toward the end of those 3 months, a few of the officers and the acting leader (the "leader" was more or less a figurehead) usurped the rest of us, disbanded and formed a new guild and stole all of our members out from under us. They implemented ludicrous loot rules that benefited themselves, and a few weeks later the new guild was dissolved. That killed the joy that we found in WoW. That's why I don't play it right now.

That was two years ago this month. We all play EQ2 now but have been considering going back to WoW, so I figured that I'd go in on this contest.

Also, you should bridge the gap between your couches with beanbag chairs and then cover everything with a slipcover. It'll be a riot whenever some unsuspecting person goes to sit in the middle.

I sampled WoW on my friend's account. I played Asheron's Call for 3 years (I was young and stupid!), but the pacing is just so slow. I also can't take the fact that the people with the smallest social life have the baddest-ass gear. This is why I play Guild Wars.

Also, you could always use your plethora of bad Xbox games as a couch section filler.

I've never played WoW, but I would definitely pick it up if I got the Expansion Pack.

Also, you could use the Rock Band box in between your two couch pieces, although it may be a bit too big :P

I play of WoW for a couple of different reasons. My first reason is because that my friend Nate got me hooked after the playing the trial last month and most of my other friends play it. I used to make fun of those who played it but now I see the error in my ways and all the fun I missed. Another reason is because I use WoW to relax and get away from some of the stressful moment in my life. It also allows me to meet others and go have fun with them and forge new friendships. If I win that whould be awsome!
