World of Warcraft Owns Your Soul
Posted on Friday, January 9 @ 18:36:44 PST by Duke_FerrisOk, 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.
