Nick Yee’s DAEDALUS PROJECT
Nick Yee performed research on the motivations behind players engagement in MMORPG’s (World of Warcraft, Everquest, etc). The following is an excerpt from a 17 year old male’s experience of WOW:
Needless to say Jio broke down. Toorsk still hadn’t written (it seems he just stopped playing the game) and it wasn’t long before she went out to search for him and ending up dieing alot. It eventually an orc named Morkris calmed her down, and she is begining to get over Toorsk and is falling for a guy who she just found up is already married. This is also making her worry that she is just addicted to attention and will fall for whatever Tauren is giving her attention at the moment. She has alot of issues she needs to work out so she’s a bit messed up emotionally.
