Yup, I used to play Zork as well! Remember the thief?
I even had the little hint book with the invisible ink...

I really haven't played any video games in a few years though. The last games I used to play were the original Warcraft I/II & Starcraft strategy games back in the late 90's (Oh my god that was over 7 years ago now... I'm getting old!)

Now I just play an occassional game of Chess either on my Macbook or with an actual board... (anyone still have those actual boards... ). I love the history, strategy, complexity, yet ultimate simplicity of the game. It's amazing how far some people play ahead on just your first few moves. I'm really just a novice compared to people who play as a sole hobby (or even profession!). A computer AI set to maximum intelligence could wipe out almost anyone on a game like Starcraft. Yet at a "simple" game of chess super computers still have a tough time beating us "Humans".

I'm at level 31 now. I'm close to 32, and I've got a few quests to cash in at Tarren Mills. I do skinning (220) herbalism (208) cooking (176) fishing (166) lockpicking (116) and first aid (200).

Downloaded the 10 Day free trial last night... ALL 10.6 GIGABYTES of it. egads.
So did my wife; we plan on adventuring together.
(Life got MUCH better on my honeymoon when I discovered wife had identical tastes
in video games. Thank you MGM Grand and your classic video game room, LOL)

Think I will try out a Druid first. She's gonna be a Rogue.
Should be interesting.

Any tips for a WoW Virgin?

(oh yeah, I'm a Zork veteran too. Loved it!)

It's an adventure game ... the main guy has all these tasks that he has to do ... back and forth through all these different worlds. Killing bad guys and monsters and collecting treasures... it's not as violent as a lot of the games that I've been "lucky" enough to get to watch so so far I've kind of been enjoying it.

I play WoW too. For those of you who don't like paying, there are free servers. Just search for it :) It is not illegal as long as they do not charge you to play. :)

Lol, I realized when someone said "I'm waiting until I can afford FF XII" that this thread was 2 yeard old. I played FF XII for 5 years, too much drama. Never got into WoW. Right now I'm playing SOCOM 4.
