Before I started playing Warcraft I told Fiancee “I have an addictive personality”. He decided to chance it anyway. Since then I believe he’s come to regret involving me in his WoW addiction. He says it’s taken over my life and is preventing me from doing the things I did before. I say I was bored with the things I was doing before and it’s only taking over while it’s more interesting. (I can quit anytime I want too. I just don’t want to).
Regardless… is it ethical to recruit others into my addiction?
I have a friend.. he is what we’d call a WoW groupie. He’s interested in the game.. and has in fact come over to our house to watch us game.. but doesn’t play himself. Knowing what I know of the addictive nature of the game is it wrong for me to try and recruit him into the game?
I have another friend… she’s playing other games.. her husband plays EVE. She says she tried out the game but found it to be “boring. And I died alot”. Should I let it go at that? Or should I invite her to come try it out with us. I’ll admit.. parts of the game are boring.. and I sometimes wonder why I bother (esp with leveling fishing, kill 10 rats) but the people I play with make the game much more interesting.
Fiancee occasionally becomes bored with the game. He also become very frustrated with our guildmates. I want to keep playing.. but I don’t want to seem to drag him back into the game just to please myself. Should I even try?
