The Dangers of Monogamey

This is a really interesting article postulating that WoW is a significant factor in the recent decline in PC game sales. While I think there are many factors including the strong console value proposition, the lack of new, original PC games, and the "movie like" production costs of blockbuster game titles, the idea that a game could monopolize a gamer's time to the detriment of other PC game purchases is very interesting. I definitely quit playing WoW after the beta because my wife was a WoW widow, and other of my friends did the same thing. Then again, many of my friends are still WoW junkies ;-)
