114 – That’s What the Lounge is For

I never realized how social an event WoW can be. I also never realized “social” could imply “small group of people in proximity to each other, playing the same game on their laptops in dead silence.”

The denizens of the Residence Hall Lounge are awesome like that.

    Yay. I’m in there, if you pay attention, every so often you might see a blur running through the lounge that nobody is paying attention to… yes, right there… that’s me!

    I actually wrote an eight-page essay on the benefits of video games. Not for class; it was at the personal request of the Dean of Student Life. I kid you not.

    (It was in response to an experimental ruling by the faculty senate to ban video games. Again, I kid you not. It, um, failed. Probably not the least because of the Dean’s behind-the-scenes dislike for an unenforceable rule.)

    I’ve found WoW to be a ridiculously social game- every saturday, I meet up with my guildies and drink beer, talk about the game- and then we found out that 50+% of the people in the bar play WoW :V

    But that’s why you play Magic the Gathering… just not online.
