Should games like World of Warcraft come with a health warning?
I`m curious what people think, even if you aren`t a player of this game or other MMORPG`s you`ll probably know someone who is, either in your family, friends or boyfriend/girlfriend/husband or wife etc.

Sure. I've never played the game, or heard of it. But if there's a question about whether or not it affects your health, then there should be a warning on it, no matter how miniscule the possibility of it happening may be.

It's terribly addictive >.< trust me...health warning is a bit far the ESRB warning should suffice. I believe its "Teen"..so yeh...some guy got kicked out of or school actually because he played it so much he failed yr 12..im managing my WoW time
(ESRB is the same thing as G,PG,M etc. for movies..except its for games)

No, what is the health risk behind playing such a game?
16 yrs ago - Tuesday 6/27/06 - 4:22:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh God yes! Like YT! Addiction warning!

They should warn people about how much sleep you'll lose over that game

Addiction.

Seriously. It's more than a normal game.

The online community and "world" feel to it as well as building up your character and new worlds appearing all the time.

There's been cases of people getting so addicted they ruin their lives over it.

Really?!?!

I dont know anyone who plays it, I thought it was like any other videogame.

Why? Does that big bald green thing with an axe in the picture jump through the computer screen and chop your arm off if you play for too long?

I'll answer for David, the problem with playing WOW is, time passes, you really can lose hours without realising it, I know for one, how much he plays, how it affects him, one day he'll go too far and snuff it

Please end your life, you stupid c*nt, seriously, grow the f*ck up, that's just ridiculous.

Lmao.

I have played MMORPGs before, those take your life away. If you want to play, you have no choice but playing for many HOURS each time. You alaways feel compelled to play more, or play a certain amount of time so you dont leave your friends in a bad situation. MMORPGs and YT are not in the same league at all.

It does come with a warning. Final Fantasy XI always displays a message saying to play the game in moderation, and WoW has a similar message in the instruction manual, plus it regularly appears in the tips as you're logging in.

Another quality response.

Pielle I know where you're coming from, apart from most of my friends play wow, so there's no reason to leave it

I'd probably enjoy a game like that, but knowing how obsessed I get about certain things, I'm staying away from it. And to answer the question, yes.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 8/10/06 - 6:21:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Never even heard of it. I find it hard to relate, how could someone get so addicted to something? It's beyond me.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 9/10/06 - 8:51:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. That game is so addicting.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 10/21/06 - 7:11:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
The only people addicted to those games are people that detest their own life so much they need to escape from it and create a new reality of their "Life".

That's why I play Final Fantasy.

Blizzard actually does have a disclaimer about playing too long. because there was this kid in Korea who played so much that he thought he was his character and he jumped out of his window and fell to his death. Also when you log in sometimes the tip of the day is, "Remember to take all things in moderation, even World of Warcraft." But yeah, the game is highly addictive :)
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 10/30/06 - 7:59:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know so many people who are addicted. I refuse to play it because I know I'd get addicted.

I used to be addicted to WoW, it affected my life, my friends, my family, but now I am proud to say, "I BEAT WORLD OF WARCRAFT!"
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 11/3/06 - 5:08:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Also, I have been clean for 4 months now!

I just got a 14 day trial for it. Haven't started, but I think the whole "I'm addicted....to WoW" thing is a little retarded. It's as stupid as saying your addicted to weed, or LSD.

No.
