I've been noticing a pattern lately. Everytime it comes up in conversation that I play WoW, I end up having to hear someone tell a story of person they know who became addicted to WoW.
If I told you that I'm a homebrewer, would your first response be to tell me the story of your uncle who is an alcoholic? I think not. So why is it that I need to hear about your friend Bob who wasted his life away playing a game?
Not everyone who plays WoW is addicted. I am not your friend Bob. I am a unique individual. Don't judge me based on stereotypes.
