Addiction, Entertainment, what is it about games?
What is it that makes us play games? Is it an addiction we slowly build up ourselves, or is it just something we do to entertain ourselves, and then in the end it might turn into a addiction?
Personally I started to do it because I loved the entire atmosphere around gaming, and especially MMOs have caught my eye! I find it interesting because it is an online world, in a different form! And ever since I tried it , I have been playing! :) So I guess in some sort of way I am addicted, maybe to the people there ? Or the laughs I get from it.
I have tried many different MMOs the last 3 years, it started out with World of Warcraft, which I only played for about 9 days, until I found Lord of the Rings online, or rather my ex. boyfriend showed it to me, and slowly I realised I was becoming addicted to the universe and the game itself! Besides that I tried out Age of Conan, but I went away from that after 1-2 months, Warhammer was sort of the same and then when Aion came out, I realised that the only game I really enjoy enough is Lotro. And that's where I have been for the last 3 years by now! And I am still enjoying it ! :) Which leads me to my question of the day!
Question is: So what games do you play?
