Vice or Guilty Pleasure?
Occasionally I’ll get blog inspiration from WoW Insider. They recently started featuring guest blogs posted through Blog Azeroth. This week’s Blog Azeroth’s topic is recognizing which of the 7 deadly sins you commit the most while playing WoW.
We all know of the Seven deadly sins (Wrath, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy and Gluttony) and we all succumb to aspects of them at one time or another, but is there one particular sin that affects you more than the others when you play World of Warcraft? Are you a bit too prideful about your armor set? or Do you look upon someone with envy when they have a piece of armor that you don’t have yet?
Oh wait, this post is about MY deadliest sin! Can anyone guess which one it is? Anyone? OH YOU KNOW IT!
ALL THE NERDRAGE!!!!!!!!
Yes, I probably exhibit every sin, but there is one sin that is the deadliest for me by far, and anyone who knows me will wholeheartedly agree.
There’s something about the 9 thousand people in a zone trying to jack my node, or the 18 thousand people in the zone trying to do the same quest, or the difficulty of new encounters at the beginning of the expansion, or learning my class all over again and HATING it, or the HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE Rivendare kills for that #$*&% mount, or the underwater Cataclysm zone where I CANT FIND THE GODDAMN CAVE…JESUS EFF CHRISTMAS!!!! This game seriously pisses me off! FOR REAL!
But I’m not unhappy. Usually. I still have fun. I love this game. I’ll never quit. But I do have a tendency to go from zero to a frothing bitch and type in shouty capitals without warning.
(oh Cali! I KNOW you just got that reference!)
So yes, my deadliest sin in this game is Wrath. Arthas has nothing on me baby. You DON’T want to see me wielding Shadowmourne on the rag.
Be afraid. Be. Very. Afraid.
