From the standpoint of a person in the same situation; whether or not to play WoW based on the opinion, I'm going to point out a path that actually hasn't bee mentioned yet. Play whichever one you like. If it's Xbox, then great. Play with your friends, be a cool kid. If it's WoW, then equally great. Play with your *online* friends, be cool there. Just dont let the schoolfriends know you play WoW. If they don't know, then they cannot classify you as an 'uncool nolife gamer'. I'm afraid to say that, in thE school I go to, at least, this is your best option. It sucks to effectively live two lives; one online and one IRL, but it's the easiest method. Honest. @Robin I'm afraid to say that for the first time in a Drama Mamas article, I'm going to have to disagree with you. Telling the 'cool kids' that they don't know what WoW is like will do eff all. They'll tell you that they aren't sad, and don't play sad games, or they'll ignore you completely. Worst case, they'll ask you to show them, and take the opportunity for even more laughing when you do. You said that their opinion doesnt matter. I'm sorry, but I beg to differ. Their opinion may be entirely incorrect and uninformed, but the opinion if your schoolpeers *does* matter, as a schoolkid. You spend your life there; they are the people you have the most contact with. You can try and ignore them, (contrary to the old adage) they won't go away. You can argue with them, they'll be having the time if their lives. The only way is to influence their opinion, either by doing the cool thing or by telling them that you are. These types of people normally have the thought processing ability of a lump of granite; it shouldn't be too hard. (All this from the perspective of a 15 year old UK schoolkid. And I have to agree eh the other commenters; some of the 15 years olds posting here seem extraordinarily mature.)
