    has found as many different routes to fascination as a hive mind can handle. Certainly some elements of WoW are like being in an interactive animated children's storybook. The whole idea of questing and role playing is to live your fantasies and make them real and here that can range from starting a bar fight between goblins and gnomes at Fizzle and Pozzik's steambarge, to assembling mats so you can advance far enough in a profession to make something cool like a flying machine or a huge profit in the Auction House.

    There are also some subtle nudges to be more aware of the exploitation of the environment by corporate raiders like Venture Corp that pollutes everything it touches, along with the introduction of concern for species extinction all mixed in with things like easter egg hunts.

    In that same game you can equip with a fairly wide range of armor and weapons, buffs and debuffs to engage in wonderful melees with a role of killing monsters or healing, both equally valued.
