Whelp, congrats gang, you've led another lamb to slaughter.
I had never played a MMORPG before this one, and had honestly felt like I never would. They didn't seem like my bag.
But based purely on the enthusiasm from this forum (and Gamespot's review, I guess), I leapt in day before yesterday and have done little else since. I haven't WANTED to do anything since. Hell, I DREAMED about WoW last night. This is a wonderful game. Everything else can vacate my HD for a while, I'm hooked.
So, I guess this is to say Thanks! (my girlfriend says Thanks, too, but there is a completely different tone to her voice)
