I agree with you, at least a little. I wouldn't go as far as saying the game ruins lives, it's more so how people let it become such an important part of their lives. in this case, I agree and have no sympathy for the OP as they clearly don't understand that their wedding is much more important than any video game should be. OP, YDI on this one.
World of Warcraft is partially why my first marriage didn't work. While my ex-husband and I both played, he wanted to spend money we didn't have on in-game content. He also decided that us questing and doing raids together was proper "together time." He wouldn't take time off the game to spend time with me nor communicate. Games are fine, and fun, in moderation.
My ex-boyfriend was once three hours late to pick me up from work (in my car, which I had allowed him to use to 'put in job applications') because he was in an instance and his group needed him (a PUG, people, seriously!). Many people would call this another example of WoW ruining a relationship, but in my experience, an idiot jerk will use any opportunity to act like an idiot jerk. In some occasions, it just happens to be WoW. I don't blame the game at all. In fact I now play it frequently and have a great relationship with another gamer. Games like WoW can be beneficial to life and relationships, when played in moderation. Check out Jane Mcgonigal's Ted talks on the subject. They're very inspiring. But I guess my point is don't blame WoW for the actions of the people who play it. OP deserves it, not for playing a popular game but for losing sight of his priorities and failing to be there for his fiance on what should have been one of the most memorable and important days of their life together.
I had a roommate who lost jobs and had cars repossessed because of this game. I would go to bed at 11PM after working all day then going to night college classes while he played this game. Then I'd wake up at 5 AM and he'd still be playing. Come home at 4 PM after work... and he's still playing. THAT is the very definition of an addiction. And addictions ruin lives.
You are a liar because actually it doesn't ruin most people's lives. Wow players are just as responsible as anyone else. It depends on how you use your time on the game. Stop making ignorant stereotypes and the people who thumbs up your stupidity are just as moronic and clueless. Besides, you don't even play the game, just listening to problems from a few irresponsible players. Shut the fuck up.
I call fake. WoW isn't even that good anymore, no way you could've forgotten your own wedding.
Your level-95 Paladin is not impressed.
I hope for your spouse's sake that either this is fake or that at the very least you had the wherewithal to come up with a better excuse than "I was playing WoW".
"Sorry I was late honey. On my way to the wedding, a large green man told me I had to save the world and handed me a set of armor to help me relinquish the evil... but the real reason I'm late is cause my tux got wrinkled under the armor and I had to find someone to press it.." Problem solved.
wow you were to busy playing your game to show on time for your own wedding, I guess some one isn't getting played with tonight on their honeymoon.
I feel bad for your wife. She must be pretty low on your priority list for you to forgot about your own wedding.
I bet you didn't miss the bachelor party. You probably ordered pizza, played dungeons and dragons and completely ignored the strippers.
At least you weren't screaming at a 9 year old kid on call of duty to stop being such a noob. I'm not saying I don't like call of duty because I do
