For me it's just a game, and not even a game that I've played in recent months.

To me it is currently a hobby but it used to be work-that-I-did-not-get-paid-for. Being a GM taking care of recruits/making a roster/making sure everyone is happy/have fair lootrules/be the joker. It was a lot of work. I think I spend about 8 hours a day on it perhaps more. At my regular job I would still be busy with the guild.
I don't think WoW will ever be "just a game" for me.
It makes sense all way round.
WoW is what ever you want it to be.
If you find yourself cancelling and never comming back, then it was just a game to you.
If you keep comming back to it, then you probably should think of it as a hobby. A hobby can be adictive and you are always more forgiving about your hobby than a random game.
WoW is an addiction and a world. x)
A hobby is something you decide to spend your free time on.
Playing videogames is a hobby (unless you do it for a living), wow is a videogame.
The question isn't if WoW is a game or a hobby - I don't even clearly see the difference. The point is that whatever it is, if you rage about it like that dude on the WoW forums, you're probably an immature dork.
It's a hobby if you make it your hobby. Most high end raiders and pvpers do it as a hobby.
Every winner ascends to the top climbing a staircase of losers.
I don't give a FUCK what you think, peasant.
It's both, some people take it more serious than others, though.

It's real life for a lot of people.
It's 100% more than a hobbie for me.
For me WoW is a game but gaming is a hobby.
hob·by1 [hob-ee] Show IPA
noun, plural hob·bies.
1. an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation: "Her hobbies include stamp-collecting and woodcarving."
Playing video games is a hobby.
If you play WoW almost exclusively then you can say playing WoW is your hobby.
Depends on your definition of a hobby. Take the one from Dictionary.com:
This means, yes, WoW is a hobby, even to those people that claim it's 'just a game'. They play it only for pleasure or relaxation and not as their main occupation, so it's a hobby. A hobby is simply something you do for fun and doesn't have a minimum requirement for money or time spend on it, so everything besides work can be classified as a hobbyhob·by
