    My personal opinion is that one large element of it is that it can be difficult in the 'real world' to feel a sense of success and fulfilment and these virtual worlds offer a way to be successful relatively easy without the risks involved with failure. It's a safe way to get a (fake) sense of self worth.

    Run a corp, or even worse running an Alliance in EVE Online, nothing compares to that.

    Well just got my renewal for the TV license. £142 :eeek:
    Now concidering you could play WoW for a year on that money. You just gotta ask yourself one question. Which would give me more hours of pleasure.
    Makes more sense me clicking a mouse button for another herb to gather than clicking for another TV channel in the desperate hope of finding something worthwhile to watch.
    I don't play WoW btw. Started playing Runes of Magic. Its free to play and grindtastic :D
