Sadly, I don't think that is a joke site. My god, some people are just helpless, lol.

Finko, just because you substituted your WoW addiction for a LOTR:O addiction, doesnt make you any less of an addict! ;)

I think it's not the addictiveness thats the problem, being addicted to a game like chess wont cause you the same problems.
Compared to chess, your playing a game thats pretty narrow and repettive. You are only using a very little amount of your brains so to speak.

Games like chess work with major achievement and award (emotional ewards and personal awards).
Mentally the game works with endless repetition of minor achievement and award (emotional awards).
Drugs work with no achievement and award (emotional award).

I think a game like WOW leans more to drugs then to chess.

Healty games are games that require a continous investment (the greater the achievement, the greater the award). Playing professionally or in a clan I would consider 'heatly gaming'.

(Not wanting to sound parent like, just play your damnn game: have fun)

What bothers me most about that site is people point a finger at WoW and basically saying "My life is a shambles, because of WoW'. Which is garbage. You're life is a shambles because you're a shitty husband, lazy student, bad parent, etc. WoW does a nice job of exposing a person for what they are, I guess ;) Makes people realize that their priorities aren't where they belong perhaps.

No doubt there is an addictive nature to the game, but not unlike anything else that people enjoy imo.
