CounterPoint on WoW

As a sobering counterpoint to the last post, I offer up this article, Videogame Widows.
"Kristan's husband, Allen, began his love affair with World of Warcraft one afternoon about a year ago, when he opened a demo CD for the game and started playing it non-stop. Kristan, who is 23, assumed he'd eventually get bored. Today, the 26-year-old gets home from his IT job at 6, inhales dinner and plays the online fantasy game until midnight. This he does every evening, except for weekends -- when he plays from 9 a.m. until 2 a.m."

Thanks to Karen for the link.
