I see it as to each his or her own preference.

    Congrats you've discovered video games are a waste of time, thanks for the video.
    Actually going to the movies is a social experience, a real social experience, which in case could ever so slightly be more productive because you could theoretically make new friends, real friends, or build existing relationships up.

    I italicized real each time because yeah, WoW can be social blah blah blah, but at the end of the day those people you were playing with chances are you will never build a relationship outside of WoW (though it is a possibility you could, im not disregarding that) and your boundaries are questing raiding and pvping with your said 'friends'.

    Best way to put it, WoW friends help you progress your character and be more social within the realm of WoW. So in WoW, yes you are more social, but anything outside of it your online friends will not be able to help you be more social or progress your real life struggles and responsibilities. Real friends will help you become more social in the realm of the real physical world, which can make you more sociable both in the physical world, and in WoW (since WoW is after all, a production of the real world, surprisingly.)

    Also, yes all video games are a waste of time, but the way WoW is, and he explains it in his video right at the very end, WoW makes you more addicted the more you play, and don't even try to deny WoW isn't addictive. His example put it best, no one put in thousands of hours in Super Metroid trying to collect every item/etc.

    I agree 100% with everything he said.

    Nice review, but needed more numbers.

    On a sidenote, if "buggerchimps" or "sodomonkeys" ever show up in this game, I will swim to Australia by hand to personally give Yahtzee a wedgie powerful enough to make his testes crawl up his arse and spit out of his ears for inspiring the idea.
    I can't help but feel my "epic" experience being diminished when I wage battle against mighty Ordos and 10 people in the raid do nothing but /jump and /fart ...

    I always loved that review - because he actually said a TON of things I've always said... particularly about those damn blasted NUMBERS.

    Stop looking at the numbers, and you remember you have a sword.

    There was another video he did about another MMO, I forget which one - but he had the best line ever in there:

    Cows go "Moo", Dogs go "Woof", MMO players go "PVP is unbalanced".

    Actually there's quite a few he likes. Silent Hill 2 is a major one he often touts as being great (as somebody mentioned above). Grand Theft Auto III he loves to death too... which is rather surprising since his review of GTAIV was rather glowing.

    That was pretty hilarious. Kind of a sad way of looking at end game raiding though.

    Haha pretty funny actually.

    It's kind of good to get a complete outsider's perspective on WoW, makes me realise a lot of things I take for granted. Like how much time you invest just to level a character.

    No punctuation at all, if you will.
