FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

World of Warcraft Owns Your Soul

Posted on Friday, January 9 @ 18:36:44 PST by Duke_Ferris
Ok, so we make all the jokes about all the WoW players being obsessed and never going outside. It's funny. But nothing could have prepared me for the actual numbers from Nielsen.

According to this, in the U.S., 62% of all time spent PC gaming, is played in a single game: World of Warcraft.

Let me put that another, more frightening way. Americans spend more time playing WoW THAN ALL OTHER PC GAMES EVER RELEASED - COMBINED!


The next closest game isn't even close at just under 5%, AND IT'S STILL MORE GODDAMNED  WARCRAFT!

Ok, I can keep it together. Remember to breathe. The rest of the list has some surprises. Bookworm? Cake Mania? Really?

Get right on that WoW addicts, before the casual gamers decide they're going to dedicate their entire lives to a game like you and knock you out of the top slot. You can do it. You don't really need sleep, right?

Oh, and these figures are from before Wrath of the Lich King came out.
