I played about World of Warcraft for a good 7 hours or so, the other day. I’ve got a human, level 12 Mage, and I’m bored already. I don’t like the fact that you never win / or it never really ends. It’s like immortality – kinda defeats what makes life so precious and beautiful. You lose yourself in hours of online playing and all you have to show for it is a level 70 Paladin/Mage/Warlock/Whatever with magic or minions and a few “rare” cyber “artifacts”. And the fact that you can’t manually “up” your own strength/stamina/mana/abilities is retarded.
As a girl, I get how the level 30 apparel should appeal, I mean have you seen some of those enchanted boots!? Still, I just can not see myself slashing the same “rodents, bugs, crabs or leather-wearing-hairy-club-swingin’ bad asses” for more than a day. PvP you say? Errr No, I’m not about to have my fashionably-challenged-mage pwned by some WoW obsessed 40-year old weirdo – I’m not going to end 10 level 1 n00bs to make me feel better either.
I like RPGs… I guess I am just not built for immortality… I choose life.
