The Dangers of “World of Warcraft”

Paging Joi Ito! Paging Catspaw! Paging our CEO Elliot! Are you aware of The Dangers of “World of Warcraft”? The comic below will show you what they are!

(If you hadn’t figured it out, the comic is a repurposed “Dangers of Alcoholism” comic from the 60s or 70s.)

Pfft. Elliot’s figured out the way to avoid such family troubles due to WoW: bring the family into the game with you!

I don’t know anyone that plays world of warcraft. Least they don’t admit it. Now I can see why

This is awesome. I shared the link on my forums. xD I used to play WoW, and it was fun. I think I get to play again this summer… I may have to re-consider. Lawl.

all you nigga need to get a fucken life and play cs fuck WOW WOW gay ass fuck u geeks ass fuck oWN U GUYS IN CS damn TWEAKERS BRAKE THE GP AND SMOKE SOME WEED AND GO OUT U MORONS TWEAKERS

reminds me of the D&D propaganda(or whatever the fuck it was) that was given out by Christians(I think)…fucked up shit….

Just so you folks know, I am not the creator of the comic; I just found it and posted it here. Any misspellings and grammatical errors are that person’s, not mine.

Still, it’s hilarious, isn’t it?

Interesting art. It’s Kurt Schaffenburger, but it looks like Vince Colleta inking. [/comic geek]

Oh yeah, funny stuff, too, I guess.

Lol WoW is an alright game if you don’t get addicted to it. Whoever says its a crap game imo probably sucks at it.

[comic geek back on]
Wait! That looks like Wood inking! I was fooled by the last panel. Woody, forgive me! [/comic geek]

…Hey, why are all the WoW addicts suddenly looking like they feel sorry for me…?

liked the comic, good find!

on a side note about comment #14 from one ‘Writer’

I went to your site. You’re going to blog about being a blogger. My, how…postmodern. Yet incredibly boring.

good luck with that.

not bad, but the “effected”=>affected misspelling almost ruined it for me. also, was it supposed to be “Mary got worse then John” or “Mary got worse _than_ John” ?

@Clown Soup

Please show me one person that actually types “W.T.F.” or “R.O.F.L.”

Yes, it’s grammatically correct to have the periods in there, but you really need to find something more significant to fuss over.

Anyways, coming from someone who has never played WoW, that comic is funny and sad at the same time. I’m sure it’s a fun game all in all, but to think people would go to such lengths just to be able to play it…

In defense of “Clown Soup”…

“Mary got worse THEN john”?
WTF? Learn English!

THAN

And, in other words, grow up spelling and grammar trolls, you are boring, unwanted, and usually just plain wrong.

This comic blows dick. Maybe if the person who made it could use some actual humor and not spell common words wrong, it would be better. Fucking stumble button wasting my time taking me to this site. May as well make it worth my time and bash your site for blogging it. Thumbs down!

The problem with a game like warcraft ( or similar MMO’s ) is that it becomes an escape from real life for many people, the toon is more realistic then it appears to be. I know a “real world” couple that plap together, and it did not improve their relationship 😀 or social life for that matter.

haha great, but you used “effecting” which isnt even a verb. “Affect” is the verb, “Effect” is the noun, but great nun the less.

I’m a WoW player and I found this to be hilarious XD

I loved the panel with the car “FOR THE HORDE!”, I cracked up at that ><

whoo cairs if tha speling iznt korekt. its stil priti funi. yoo giys neeed too ztopp wurying bowt thyngz lyk speling gramma and.

Most boring and stereotypical comic ever… How can people find this funny, it’s beyond me. It only proves that the person who made this comic has an adversity against WoW, but has no idea about the gameplay itself, and likes to inflict the bad thoughts about a game on everyone else.
No, I’m not a WoW fan, but I played it from time to time. And this game, just like any other game, only affects people with a lower IQ or those who can easily be manipulated and impressed. And they aren’t that many.

Also – the comic has some grammar mistakes such as ‘effected instead of ‘affected’. Plus, it’s not Azroth, it’s Azeroth.

Get your shit straight if you’re posting something.

See.. the glory of this thing is the fact that is was PROBABLY made by someone who plays WoW. It’s probably healthy.. That person makes us WoW players look good. They should be able to laugh at themselves. I do it all the time. 🙂

FOR THE HORDE!
Awesome.

ok… to all you people leaving comments like “this comic is like 2-3 years old”….. yea SO WHAT… the telephone is 200 years old and u still use it moron

Wow is ok if you play it once and a while like any game! Its a great game and I play it. Its the people that wont even go to sleep, or wont do things with their family for it. Then it becomes a problem like in this! It did make me laugh a little!

I don’t think playing WoW poses any threat or danger. Playing WoW something one should not to be afraid of. It is just a matter of control and living a balanced life. There is no such thing as WOW addiction. It’s a matter of CHOICE. Choosing to play WoW.

lollerskates

youre trying to act intelligent, but its makes me want to kick your mother in the face. you have no friends so stop trying to impress people with words like stereotypical. and grow a sense of humor you pathetic piece of shit. its meant to make you laugh not to dis the fuckin game. asshole. and no, im not a hypocrite for calling you an asshole because im just stating the obvious.
and this game is bad for you because its making you inactive. also youre only using the right side of your brain. the left side is used for organization and such, but since the computer is brainwashing you and youre spending the majority of your days playing the game using your right side, the left side becomes inactive thus losing all motivation for organization.
you fail.

anywho, its was funny =)

That is too funny. And its soooooo true. I just broke my WOW addition of three years; and yes it was an addiction. As my guilds got better, the amount of chatter and goofing off done in chat diminished. And I found that that’s the part I enjoyed more than the actual playing. So I joined Facebook instead. And if I hadn’t, I would have never reconnected with the Accordian Guy.

@mason

Btw, lollerskates didn’t post that, he quoted from some guy, “One”. That’s why there’s a “/quote” there.

And yeah, it was pretty funny.

Omg I’ve been playing wow for 5 years and my grades are always 19+ with the best mark being 20. Even if you are addicted to wow most people don’t suicide because of it, nor do they forget their families. (In fact wow found my a gf so I’m happy)

My husband was a total WoW addict when we were dating, and it caused serious relationship issues. It just took up too much time! Now, we limit game time and don’t do any scheduled guild stuff that means we can only hang out with our real-life friends at certain times. Plus, we play together sometimes, which is really a lot of fun for us.

This game has destroyed a very dear friends life, he was fired from a union job that he was employed with for 21 years! He has lost his new truck, his mortgage is now 2 full months behind, he has no food, hasn’t showered in about 6-8 weeks……it’s awful! This man is truly a great person too! It’s killing me slowly to watch his life crumbling before my eyes.
I need advice and help! Please …

When I saw this comics I laughed my a** off!But the “I’ll show you PVP bitch!” just rofl’ed me to death,although doctor says I’m going to be alright XD Keep ’em comming dude :))

One – Sounds like the comic book guy from the Simpsons.

Allison – You cannot help a person unless they are willing to help themselves. Sorry to say this, but you might protest all you want however, it is his choice in the end whether to keep playing or not. It almost sounds like he has an addictive personality and hasn’t found the right balance yet. Some people get passed it, others don’t.

I enjoyed this comic a lot, it reminded me of the GI Joe parodies from FenslerFilm… Even though I play WoW, I thought this was clever, haha. PvP Bitch was brilliant.

I saw this a few years ago, and for some reason it popped into my head the other day and I had to find this comic! It still makes me crack up, even after the tenth read. 🙂
