WoW has much more casual content then before, instances are very quick in the new expansion. In fact, I think they are going to scare away the grind addicts.
I agree these games (starting with MUDs for me) can ruin your life, but thats a personality thing. I'd probably be shacked up with some crack ho running to buy drugs an stealing peoples XBOX's for money if I wasn't running Karazan.
Amen brother. I've blown money on Tabula Rasa, AoC, Warhammer, EQ2, and LOTRO. LOTRO would actually be worth it if I didn't care about PvP. WAR would be worth it if I didn't care about anything but PvP. TR, AOC, and EQ2 are just junk.
