My brother used to have the same issue. He was so ashamed of WoW that his girlfriend of two years didn't know he was spending 15+ hours a week playing it, or that sometimes he'd not schedule dates because of raid night. He maintained the charade for over a year before finally coming clean, and still felt embarrassed when he was caught playing. He DIDN'T feel embarrassed that he picked up Modern Warfare 2 at a midnight release and played online for 20+ hours straight, because excess of Xbox wasn't as uncool or nerdy as excess of WoW.The general crowd here, as well as the answers provided by our lovely columnists are right, Do what you love, and don't do things for the approval of others, or else you will feel like you are missing out and eventually resent the people who's approval you're seeking.
