It happens. Just saying that to all the people that bash their gums saying don't blame the game etc..
A good friend of mine and I decided to buy World of Warcraft roughy 6-7 months ago after debating wether or not to share a account. After getting seperate accounts we both played on the same realm for a while. I got to level 38 within 1 or 2 months and then started to get tired of the game, bored basically. By the time I was 38 he was 52. He had spent twice the time I had spent over the same time period. Theres the reasons; "I leave it on when I'm downloading or having my tea". ********.
I have never progressed from level 38 and will never as I have deleted that god awful time wasting character, unistalled the game. I don't plan on going back ever mainly for the reason that it has absolutely crippled my friends sociability skills. Not crippled as in slightly faultered but crippled as in that crappy game has made my friends sociability skills completely die. Now he seems more of a burdon to be around than anything else. Stands next to me but doesn't say hello. Walks beside me without striking a coversation. This probably doesn't sound bad to the most of you but it is. Imagine one of your best friends seemingly not having anything in common with you or even have the desire to make small talk over the period of 3 months.
It has gotten much worse over the last week. I often see him with no desire to communicate with anybody around him, even though he is friends with everybody at school. It has gone to the point where You can actually feel people not wanting to talk to you because he is next to me.
Any advice lads and lasses?
