Lucasarts and BioWare Reveal Star Wars: The Old Republic as a new MMO to satisfy fan appetites and MMO enthusiasts. The child in me is jumping up and down with excitement over this release but the skeptic isn’t so pleased. Maybe I’ve consumed too much science fiction in my short lifetime, but doesn’t time consuming games like this serve as excellent pacifiers of the public? The same thing goes for television. As we continue to increase access to entertainment we decrease the amount of time available for other pursuits. Granted, this serves as crime control and prevents civil unrest. However, how much time are we losing that could be spent improving our own lives and other’s as well? Yes, it makes me feel happy to be entertained but lacks the fulfillment of true human interaction when making a difference in someone’s life. Can we live life unplugged?
