Jeopardy Wow

Monday, July 30, 2007

Sometimes it makes you wonder if Blizzard Entertainment called their MMORPG World of Warcraft on purpose, as it has a very convenient abbreviation, everytime someone makes that exclamation of surprise, a lot of people would be reminded of 'that game'. The results in the Urban Dictionary give us some insight into the term and popular thought and have some interesting links with what Wow is supposed to mean these days:

World of Warcraft. A game in which people with little to no life interact. Like the real world ...only not. - Zym1982
A very dangerous computer games that involves, but is not limited to, killing social life, decreasing GPA, developing hermit-like characteristics- I warn you
A game that consumes your life and eventually decays your friendships - Tony
And to end this quote section properly, read this explanation of the term WoW.

But of course... there is also Jeopardy:
