    I can sum it up, at least as far as I'm concerned. "Addiction"... :gee:

    Hmmmm........., not sure what to think, perhaps that the best thing for myself could be to stop playing multiplayer games outright and not get into whatever may lock me into playing ?

    I think this thought deserves further thinking........

    As far as a hobby. Still cheeper and less a pain in the ass then loading up the golf cart and going to test out a new $174 5 iron for a few hours. And for fresh air I can do my own lawn work and let the kid pushing his dad's lawn mower from house to house find another way to deal with his addiction. And if I get mad a mouse is cheeper then a 5 iron.

    Other bonus over golf or fishing, is knee deep snow doesn't slow down UO. Just a fridge low on drinks does.

    I'll never forget the first time I ran into six under on sonoma and just ..died.. Good time good times. lol.

    I play UO for the mage, it's awesome to me the most complex mage system I have ever seen, it's almost never the same fight twice and you have so so so many options.

    Share some of those pics please... i'm sure there as some very interesting ones in your collection. We should make a thread about uo pics solely.
