    Look. I got addicted to MMOs a long time ago. Then again recently. I found myself getting bored of them after not making any friends in the community or caring about guild activities. Not making an investment of your time is the key to not having an addiction. Then everyone jumps on me the first chance they get about this and that.

    Not making an investmentn of your time, perhaps. Some are quite able to invest within certain parameters or time frames.

    Hell, I could probably stand to be a bit more addicted to MMOs. I don't play nearly as much as I'd like.

    I didn't come here to argue. I only posted guidelines for removing an MMO addiction. I see that I'm not very popular for trying to help those people who are.
    So you came into the MMO forum to tell people how to stop playing MMOs? Do you also post twelve step programs in beer forums?

    Yeah but, the thing people don't realize is that MMOs are giant socialization rings. Believe me when I say the internet is not real socization taking place. The shear amount of variety that comes with not using text for your socialzation is phenominal. Emotes are just emotes. The variation of people actions are infinite. I'll agree is socialization, but its what a tug boat is compared to the titanic.
    My biggest hobby is to play video games. I especially like to play them with other people.

    Why wouldn't I play WAR with them?

    Try an experiment yourself. Play war with them. Get invested into the game.

    See if they want to play Soul calibur 4 or play war with you.
    Some of them, yes. What's your point?

    Oh so you had a bad experience so now we all must be wary.

    Get it through your head man. Everyone else is not like you. They don't derive the same enjoyment from the activities you do, they don't socialize the same way, they don't make friends the same way. Your experiences don't dictate everyone elses existence.

    Ok, I'm going to get you down off your cross because I could use the wood to heat my house.
