    I have had a WOW account a few times in the past and have felt it was really a great game, but a major commitment to continue playing.  The fee, coupled with all you could do, really cripples you from playing other games cause there is only so many hours per day to play games.  for the devoted WOWer, do you just play this game or do you find time to play other games?

    Right now, I'm paying for college and don't have much spare cash, so I've just been playing WoW, because it's cheap and I still get enjoyment out of it. Sure, I COULD renew my gamefly account or something, but I'm having fun with WoW.

    Whenever I play WoW, it's pretty much the only game I play besides something I can pick up for a few minutes at a time like TF2.

    Only play it if you can at least get some friends to play with you, otherwise you're sinking your time and money down and you'll eventually get bored. Happened to me before, but now suddenly all my co-workers want to play haha.

    @xanaty: Or like I tell everyone else that doesn't have the commitment or cash, go to a WoW private server. It's legal, but it's different than the public Blizzard server. Meaning less support.

    For awhile I did pretty much just play that game. I don't mind so much though because it was a great experience. Now however I'll go back every now and again to play a little but I don't feel I need to be on daily. We'll see how much this changes once Cata is released!

    WoW is a great game and worth the time and money as you can get countless hours of entertainment out of it. When I go through a WoW phase I end up saving so much money because I'm not dropping $50-60 each time a generic FPS comes out.

    WoW gives me the best entertainment value I need. It also saves me TONS of money because I don't go out looking for a new high buying that week's $60 release.

    I really don't like when people think they are somehow special for never playing WoW or are better than other gamers. World of Warcraft, when it was first released, was an amazing game- not only on the merits of being a good MMO but a good game in general and everyone who didn't play it then missed out direly. 
     
    When I used to play it consumed all my game time plus study time so now I try to balance it with other games.

    I play other games as well.  
    At one point I was playing 2 MMOs at once (Wow and CoH/V).   
    I usually only log into WoW for a few hours a week so I don't get burnt out on the gear treadmill like I did during vanilla and TBC.

    For a long while now I've not been able to stick to playing one game at a time, unless studying etc. makes it impossible I almost always play multiple games at a time. I have honestly been mildly addicted to World of Warcraft in the past but I've found I tend to play MMOs far more casually than the average player.

    @Clinkz:  I don't see anywhere in my comment where I said I was special. I was just doing that lame quest. Sorry, I didn't know WoW was so precious to you that a innocent comment saying I have never played WoW would upset you. I guess you would be really offended if I told you I burned a trial disc I got with a game.

    Well I got bored a few weeks back and due to budget I decided to pick WoW back up for a bit.
    12,99 to play WoW for a month beats 30 for a crappy game.
    Got most of the games I wanted and the others need to come out or stop being expensive.
     
    But I do play Xbox360 on the sideline and The Witcher, so no, I play other games too.

    I've been playing other games instead, mostly. I'm tired of getting 'geared' so I can meet the insane GearScore requirements to even do anything in the game. Level 80 is depressing. I might just give up and start an alt.

    Playing with a group of mates was the main attraction but as more of us stopped playing I gave it up. Cataclysm looks to good to simply ignore so I might jump back in to at least check it out.
