Game Jumpers, posted by CJ Ovalle

Some of my friends are game jumpers.

I’ve followed them from game to game; I’ve played Everquest, World of Warcraft, Everquest 2, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Tabula Rasa, City of Heroes/City of Villains, Guild Wars, Hellgate: London, Lord of the Rings Online, Age of Conan, Aion, Champions Online, Eve Online and others I probably just can’t recall off the top of my head.

I resisted Warhammer Online and their disastrous foray into tabletop Warhammer, which they enjoyed but dropped after a few weeks (and some of them spent hundreds on the game). Ouch.

This time around, I’m playing with my wife, and that’s been solid. We’ve gone back to the only game she enjoyed in the past: World of Warcraft. It’s a strange thing- there are definitely times when I don’t like Blizzard (the gay gamer issue, the bnet lawsuit, the strategy guide lawsuit), but they also do a few good things with their fans and have generally made a fun game. Several of my friends have joined again as well, but I’m not sweating their leaving this time around, if (and when) they do. (I’m certain that Star Trek and Star Wars will be too tempting…) We’ve got a solid guild (for librarians and library-interested people!) and we’re having a good time. ^_^
