Through the Blizzard - An Introduction
There is no denying that Blizzard currently hold the MMO industry in the palm of their hands. Tales about the resulting addiction players sometimes face run rampant on the Internet, not to mention the horror stories about players with multiple accounts and their monthly bills. For better or worse, I plan to play for the ten day trial period to discover for myself what exactly draws people back into Azeroth.
Over these ten days I will be documenting my experience. Ultimately I want to find the hook that draws people in, that keeps people fascinated with the World of Warcraft. After this, it's down to see if I can avoid the attraction of this hook, and walk away wiser, not poorer.
