All's Fun in Love and World of Warcraft

    The LA Times recently did a story about a married couple who play World of Warcraft together. This is a pretty great article as it goes into the positive affects of playing the game together with your loved one and the possible social aspects you can gain from it. It's a nice breath of fresh air compared to most main stream articles that focus on the bad things that happen when people get addicted to MMOs.
    Besides, noted Brad, "we're sitting side by side while we're playing so
    we can talk to each other. We're talking about what we're doing and how
    our day was while we're playing." (Here's how serious they are about
    the game: They've removed their dining room table and replaced it with
    an L-shaped desk capable of supporting two computers.)
    Frank Pearce, founding member and senior vice president of product
    development for Blizzard Entertainment -- the game's developer and
    production company -- believes he knows the reason why couples such as
    the Murdocks might prefer staying in all weekend playing Warcraft to
    going out.
    "There's a huge social element to the game. We've had this huge massive
    community grow out of the experience," Pearce said. "The community is
    really a big factor that draws people into the game and keeps them in
    the game as well."
