Well I finally gave World of Warcraft a try. The game’s website offers a free 10 day trial. I decided I’d give it a go. So on Monday I downloaded it and went through all the upgrading. I played for maybe 5 hours total yesterday. I got a couple characters up to level 6, one to level 3, and one to level 2. I just wanted to get a feel for playing some different characters in different spots.

It’s alright, but I don’t see myself playing much anymore, even throughout the rest of the free trial. I tried joining a group on the game because some dude kept following me around asking me to. I didn’t really dig that, I’m more of a solo guy. So the game, to me, seems like you just kill things to level up so you can finish quests that will give you better equipment to help you kill stronger creatures to make you stronger so you can complete tougher quests. Just repeat that process over and over. I do see how that can be fun and challenging, but it just doesn’t do it for me.

I am a video game fan, never been one to play them on the computer though. I’m more into console sports games and the games now known as hack and slash. I like some role playing console games as well, like the Final Fantasy types. I also enjoy the multi-player party type games like Mario Kart, Tennis, and Party…speaking of that, Anson, Tomp, Brandi, we need to get our Mario Party on soon. World of Warcraft is a beautiful game and it’s ridiculously huge, but after I hit level 6, I lost patience in leveling up and realized it was only going to get worse.

So as for computer games, I’ll stick to Hexic, Bejeweled, and Text Twist.
