WoW Larger Than 145 Countries

Blizzard sends along the latest subscriber milestone for World of Warcraft, announcing the population in their MMORPG has passed the eight million mark. According to the 2006 estimates from the CIA World Factbook, if WoW were a nation, it would be the 94th most populated country on earth, ranking between Azerbaijan's 7,961,619 citizens, and Burundi's 8,090,068. Word is:

Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. announced today that World of Warcraft®, its subscription-based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), is now played by more than 8 million gamers around the world. World of Warcraft has also achieved new regional subscriber milestones, with more than 2 million players in North America, more than 1.5 million players in Europe, and more than 3.5 million players in China.

That is ridiculous. That many nerds out there with nothing better to do in life than pay to play a treadmill game?

I hate the way MMO's have no ending, and are clearly designed to extract money out of you and get you hooked. I think when people reach their 30's these kinds of games really don't appeal anymore. We tend to see through it too quickly. I can understand a month or two, of which you would pretty much see and do everything, but years?

F That!
