From The “Some People Take Stuff WAY Too Seriously” Dept.

MMORPGs are engrossing, even addicting at points – the king of them all, Everquest, has been referred to as “Evercrack” because of this. However, at some point, you have to realize that they’re just games. I have seen others lose sleep, fail classes, eschew most human contact, even forget to eat for a few days. What I haven’t seen is anyone willing to stab someone to death for an in-game dispute.
