For this next blog entry I’m going to talk about a game I used to play, and problems I went through to play it. I started playing the online computer game World of Warcraft in high school after I got my first laptop. A couple of friends told me how fun the game was, so I took an interest. My mom had bought my laptop as an early graduation gift because I was going to go to college right after high school.
So now that I had my own computer I went ahead and subscribed to World of Warcraft and set up an account. I wasn’t good at first and it took awhile to understand how to play the game but it was fun. However once I got better at it and began understanding what to do the game became addicting. I started to play every day. After about four months of playing “WOW” as some call it, I found out that excessive playing can burn a laptop up. This was a problem that I didn’t want to happen because I needed my laptop for school. I talked to my brother about the problem and he said I could have his old desktop computer. However the computer was out of date and needed to be cleaned up.
The memory was full and I needed a lot of RAM to install my game on it. I erased everything on the hard drive, updated the operating system, and installed a larger hard drive for more space. I then installed my game and came across another problem. The desktop had windows 98 and I needed a more up to date/newer version of windows in order to play the game. I went to Best Buy and bought the newest version available of windows. After successfully updating it all I could now resume playing the game. It took a lot of time to get it all set up on the desktop but it was worth it and probably saved my laptop from taking a shit on me. I eventually leveled the character to its max and quit playing the game.
