Real-Life WOW speak

My MMORPG days are now long over, but a few years ago, I used to spend several hours a day playing Dark Ages of Camelot. However, when my son was born, I just didn’t have the time to play anymore. Did you know that the more you spend time in those games, the more your brain becomes addled, and one day, MMORPG-speak starts invading your everyday life? Just check out this guy:

Ok, the guy is probably exaggerating for the purpose of the news report, but if he’s not, I predict that he’ll eventually get dumped by his hot reporter girlfriend… unless she is of the same specie that is!

  1. However, when I got my first kid, I just didn’t have the time to play anymore

    When you got your first kid? Was there a sale at the kid store?

  3. The report just makes me angry at reporters.
    And yeah, the guy is more than likely exaggerating.
    It’s just a manner of speech that gets developed in any game. Names get shortened and so do words in general if it’s something people can grab into.

  7. I smell some bitterness since you were not able to play that much. Anyway, at least your paying attention to you kid that’s much important.

  9. lol. yeah, it's exaggerated, especially when he said that a very specific request for a specific type of assistance was how you said "I need help." But it still makes the point that WoW has its own dialect of English. My last girlfriend was just as confused as this woman when my friends and I would start talking videogames, especially when WoW came up.

  11. I considered this a chance to provide some knowledge into what gaming can really be about – passion, friendship and experiences you cannot get in real life. ~ Ben Dressler. Let's face it, the gamer way of life is something that not many people fully understand. … Did you feel like you wanted to produce something that could possibly speak “for all WOW players?” Two things. First of all, the feeling that no person had ever accomplished this before.
