So Gravity over at pwnwear asked a question in his blog, and I'd like to address it here. He wrote a post about whether or not you play games other than WoW.
I wondered, how unusual am I? The best comparison would be to others in my circumstance: married with kids and a responsible job, do you play other games with any seriousness?
I'm in a similar circumstance to Gravity. I'm married with kids, and have a full time job. My daughter is a 4th grader so we have all kinds of extra cirrciular activities she's involved in like Soccer, Band, and Awana.
I've been playing WoW for over 4 years now. In that time I haven't really played any other games with any kind of seriousness.
Now occasionally, I'll fire up an old game I have like Civilization IV or Knights of the Old Republic. It's like visiting an old friend for a while and those games are still fun even years after their release. I still fire up Madden 2008. Actually I would have kept playing and buying the new Madden every single year, but EA decided to stop making Madden for the PC. I guess they decided they didn't need my money anymore.
I play around a little bit with Warcraft 3 and Starcraft, but I'm so behind on those games that I just get dominated on Battlenet so I don't play them much anymore.
I'm pretty much a One Game Man these days. That may change in 2010, but we'll just have to wait and see.
