I have a few things I purposely didn't do in WoW I've since regretted. I have a few other things I put off and have since regretted doing so. Should gaming leave you with regrets?
For instance I could have stuck with a retired character and had a few of the retro achievements that are nigh impossible for me to get on the characters I play now. But I had grown tired of that character and the new characters have been overall more fun for me. Isn't that what its all about?
Recently I've come to the realization my guild, without anyone really coming out and saying it officially, seems to have given up on clearing ICC.
Now where I stand is:
*I can try to find another guild to accomplish this goal/achievement
*I can keep showing up hoping it will just happen
*I can give up and become very lax with it
To be honest I want to do the third option. Down the road will I regret it?
This is where WoW may not change but I have to. I have to not care that I got Achievement X or Y. Or I'll end up with the biggest regret of all. Knowing none of this means anything all the while making it mean too much.
One time I got a perky pug on an alt. Not because I grouped up with 100 random players on purpose, but because I was enjoying tanking heroics and I queued up over and over again because I was having so much fun with it. And one day "Ding! Achievement unlocked!"
Are lifestyle games unhealthy?
