New article on WoW

Torill Mortensen has an article on WoW in the October issue of Games and Culture by Sage, where she stresses the prework MUDs have done in order for WoW and the like to be such huge successes as they are. Haven't had time to read it yet but her argument that "for some, playing WoW is a fully social experience. They adhere to the patterns established by Richard Bartle (1996) with his four much cited and discussed player types and are pure socializers." caught my eye. I'll look into that.
