Oct 7th 2011 8:08AM My paladin was my first max level character in vanilla, but when I realized I would only ever get to spam Flash of Light in MC & BWL, I leveled up my lowbie dwarf priest that I rolled before anyone knew what Fear Ward was. The rest, as they say, is history.

Sep 24th 2010 6:07PM You've had two separate people lie about *dying* when they couldn't play WoW for a period of time?! Ok, well the cousin one I can almost believe if the cousin was like 14 or drunk/high at the time or whatever. The parents one though ... well to paraphrase Robin - that's kind of f**ked up. Hell, lying about dying is f**ked up too. This is by far the most out-there Drama Mamas I've read so far. It should go in its own brand-new column called Insane-o Mamas or something.

Sep 14th 2010 8:50AM Sadly, for about 98% of employment opportunities, lolikitty is right. Unless your job is one where experience with video gaming would be viewed as an asset or even a pre-requisite (if you were applying to work at Penny Arcade, perhaps), it will be viewed negatively, or - at best - with indifference.
The reason for this is not that WoW (or other video games) are "unworthy" hobbies. First, your hobbies don't often belong on a resume unless your potential employer specifically asks for them. Second, video games still have a social stigma associated with them for the majority of people age 35 and older. Right or wrong, that stigma exists and the people doing the hiring are 35+ about 9 times out of 10.
This won't change until the generation that grew up with games like EQ & WoW comes into more positions of power within business. Even then, video games are still just a hobby and have no bearing (positive or negative) on your ability to, say, write a presentation, balance a budget, or put the right cover sheet on your TPS report.
