You gave yourself away by that specific answer. I'm a geek at heart, too. I play WoW , well not lately, but my acct is still active. I don't know anyone in RL who plays anymore and it's so much more fun to play that way. I miss the LAN parties, battlegrounds and even getting ganked.
I was trying to dumb down my answer too. Haha. OH I miss it too. Its been years! I still wonder where all my free time went, and everyone else`s. I can barely scrounge up a third player for Settlers.
