So, people can make up stupid religions based on a book about a guy who walk on water, but not on a game with a community of millions in all ages and kinds? Good to know.WoW is just a game? Well The Bible was just a book. It doesn't really matter if it's "just a game", I'll say the same that I counter "u waste ur time on a game lolz" comments with, does it really matter if it's a game if it grants me enjoyment? I can't really say I regret years of gaming, merely because gaming gave me enjoyment, so it fulfilled it's purpose thus worth my time like any other activity of enjoyment. Some watch TV for fun, some get drunk, in the end it doesn't matter as long as it gives you what you expect it to.WoW is a game that has become so massive that it's more then a game now. People make it part of their lifestyle, fit gametime into their daily schedule, raid, make friends, it's like a second life to manage, because you've built yourself a community inside the game just like you would in real life. Second life wasn't meant like it sounds, but I guess you get it. Everyone knows what WoW is, it would be very hard to miss something so exposed. Not that I look for religion in a game, or religion at all for that matter, but WoW is universal enough to be one. Never saw a need for religion to go along, but as I grasp it the main idea is to unite and believe in something, how does WoW not unite? Christianity has existed for 1000s of years, if WoW kept existing eventually it could become as grand, but WoW hasn't existed for 1000s of years, just a few. Yet it's so massive, we see all kinds of people enjoy this game.. the ones you would never expect to play a game. Celebs, old folk, kiddies, oh and those guys that use WoW for research even. WoW has covered just about all age groups and people types, that may not be news regarding MMOs but WoW has shed more light on it.Wall of text crits you. You die.
