WoW or World of Warcraft is an interactive rpg game, where people are able to interact with other's all accross the world, as well as entertain themselves with 'quests' and other activities. The characters start out with level 1 then as you play you reach higher and higher levels which is partially what entices people to go farther. I personally believe this game can be addictive, especially the auction house and the Darkmoon Faire. The fact of the matter is, an individual is able to escape the stresses of this reality and fall into a fantasy reality where they can travel anywhere, make as much money as they want easily, buy stuff, talk and meet others with their same interests and have fun. Before I started playing I thought it was stupid, but I do love wow.
