Okay, Seriously, this is fubar. I cant believe people put WOW as the # priority in their lives. I play alot on my downtime from that place called WORK where i make a living. However, im so irked about that guy who said people will want to have their kids play video games instead of sports one day. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? That loser obviously couldnt handle a game of touch football in highschool of course he would say something as asinine as that. I understand if its something you do all the time and you go for it. Realistically some of these people really have some messed up concepts. Why dont we all just become robots and stay glued to our computers instead of socialize outside of a WoW UI. We all belong in our own considered social circles, and finding one that fits you is great, but this is just outta whack. What if there were no computers, no video games? How would some of these people that take this to the next level cope with their lives? I mean just look at these players that are trying to justify themselves. No GF/BF, No JOB that can sustain self fufillment where they can safely say this game is NOT on their list of priorities. Almost No anything except for a nice computer and a box of frozen hotpockets. Live the lives you want to live, but making a video trying to justify these means is just plain ridiculous.I mean if i saw on a resume that this guy had RAID LEADING EXP in a top guild in WC, I'd laugh at him. WoW does not reflect on RL situations. It doesnt prepare you for anything. All you do is theorycraft on how to down some boss that will always be the same when you come back it. If you die who cares. Doesnt exactly work that way in the REAL WORLD. If I invest money here for this company with these other people that agree, and LOSE IT ALL, I'm pretty sure said company will tell us to take our 25man Raid Leading and shove it where the sun don't shine, and of course you are all fired.Sports vs Warcraft...Seriously that guy needs to get the hell off his computer and learn that sports will always dominate. I play alot of games all the time, same with sports. Honestly, watching this video makes me want to quit this game before it starts screwing with the next generation of kids. Time to take off your diapers and put on big boy pants.

Well, nothing like a sports fan putting down gaming. In my world, if you are not a gamer, you are nothing. I work in a high tech field, everyone around me is a gamer, and they all hate sports. We have LAN parties on Super Bowl Sunday to avoid it. I got my job by being a gamer, because I was well versed in tech. Sports does not always dominate. Most of the people I know avoid sports like the plague, and not because there is anything wrong with it, but they simply do not like it. Schools in my area have a hard time finding enough interested players, and have cut programs because of it. Do not get me wrong, someone who doesn,t work, because they want to play games might have an issue there, but I also know many generations of people who have never had a job, but will bet on the Super Bowl and play fantasy football til their mouse wears out. I'm sure there will always be sports fans, but they no longer control the universe. Geeks rule the world, Gamers control it. Get used to it.
