    OMG, how does one spend so much time playing this game? You would think that people would get out and be social, or do other things than play a game. It just seemed super excessive to me.

    Does anyone else think thats excessive?
    I think you spend as much time on these forums as he does in WoW. Is this more productive?

    pssst...... don't say that....
    The unemployment rate in Germany was horrendous 20 yrs ago. Little bit dependent on the states too, some had as much as nearly 14% . Talking about Western states now. It's a lot better nowadays, despite more EU workers competition. But that's another topic altogether

    You might consider that sad, a waste of my lifetime, but you don't get to decide that now do you.

    I consider watching football boring, yet pretty much every male in my country that I interact with asks me if "I saw the game last night".
    Every party I've been to has bored me to tears, The alcohol doesn't really help for me.

    The difference is I don't go around saying how sad and pathetic these people are, how they are throwing their lives away on things that in my eyes are worthless and a waste of time. It's simple really, if you're not hurting someone with your actions thene it's nobody's damn bussiness what you do.

    I could spend 5 hours a day planting twigs in hexagon shapes in my backyard, if I enjoy doing that it's none of your concerns. Because it doesn't effect you or anyone for that matter.
    I like you. (In a completely non-creepy way)

    Do you happen to be family of Salandrin?

    P.S.: I've played for 8 years and my ratio isn't too far off 7 hours/day either.

    First of all, I usually only browse these forums while I am at work, as I have a job that allows me to do so. Second, reading a forum, news sites, educational sites etc helps me to develop my brain and become better educated. Playing a game doesn't do that, let alone playing over 7.5 hours per day for nine years.

    I am not dogging the dude for playing that much, I just find it amazing and quite excessive even if it is part of what he does for a living.

    Is it the right example to set for his kids / other kids / players? I don't think so. It sends the message, "its okay to sit and be sedentary for the majority of your life," and that example encourages kids to do the same or to think its okay to do so and use "its my hobby" as justification for it.

    Again, your hobby could be to rob a bank, but does it mean that its okay to do and to set an example for others to do? No.

    Apparently your brain is not quite there yet, as you keep haunting these WOW fan forums with regular XXX commentaries every few days. This one just being the latest.

    Ever thought that people who enjoy themselves have a happy life ?

    From the posts you make (teasing), I don't think you are very happy or you wouldn't want to spoil the fun for others.

    I probably have a couple of years on you and after playing for more than 40 years, guess what ? Games were a part of the best things I did. Epic sometimes as playing 3 months at 6 hours a day a board wargaming "War in the East" back in 1979 with 4000 pieces.

    It "educated" me more than reading 20 books on Operation Barbarossa.

    And my bank works for me these days, so, I have all the time in the world "to develop my brain" (sic).

    I think it is time you start playing instead of spreading a cancerous mentality in a WOW fan forum. It is never too late to change. Start by playing, this should help already.

    Substantial evidence suggests that being an avid gamer leads to depression.

    You can find a blog about just about anything leading to depression.

    I have about 720 days played on WoW in the past nine years and I finished highschool, graduated 6 years of college, began my career and bought my first home while doing so. I feel comfortably fulfilled in my life, thanks.

    7.5 isnt that much really, try 14 hours.

    congratulations on wasting at least 900 days of your life

    I have almost 400 days played. Now granted, I worked from home as a telemarketer for a year, during which time I would play wow with the sound off for the full 8 hour work day because I had my telemarketing script memorized and could rattle it off without thinking, but still 400 days is a long time. In spite of the huge amount of WoW I have played, I have managed to get married, hold down a job, finish most of my Master's degree (still working on it), and still find time to go out with my IRL friends, so I think all the "you have no life" hate against people who have high /played time is unfounded. Live and let live.

    Besides the obvious addiction, it's also quite unhealthy both physically and mentally.

    Why do people consider going out "having a life"? For all I know, everyone on this world has a life. Maybe you just got the definition of life wrong... or you're just stupid. I'd bet on the latter. You really love your attention, even if in negative light, don't you?

    While the average human has a lifespan of 25-28 thousands days, a thousand of it spent on video games doesn't really seem like much to me. The whole idea of "you play video games so you have no life" is silly.

    8 hours sleep, 8 hours work, 7.5 hours WoW.
    The missing .5 is when there's server manteinance.
    Also, does 7.5 mean 7.50, or 7.30?

    Yes it's a perfect example of someone being OCD. But...there are far worse things this person could be obsessed over than World of Warcraft.

    I knew a R14 on my original server who had 400 days shortly before the removal of PvP titles (original ones).

    And if it concerns you that people who game excessively or do any sort of hobby excessively, for that matter, then go out and be constructive with your concern; reach out to these people and build a network to get them out of it rather than pester and rile them up on the internet all day.

    Nope. But MMO's are seductive to those who have a history of mental illness whether it's depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, attention deficit, etc. It's the nature of the game design that provides a euphoria and place to feel like part of something you aren't in real life.

    Games do not cause depression. Games do however improve hand eye coordination and critical thinking skills. This has been proven in multiple studies.
