I am considering subscribing for a month to understand what all the fuss is about. Apparently, if you haven't played WOW like me, it is a gamer sin beyond measure. Tell me, what makes it so special, and why I would want to play it, I need to understand.
It just gets to be addictive for people, because people like to build and acquire things, in this case you start out small but as you get more into the game the more things you do and collect to make the character better. I play it in spurts as well and I will pick it up again when draenor comes out, but once all the big content is beat I just stop playing until the next patch it out with new raid content.
