So by now it should be no secret that I do, in fact, play World of Warcraft. I don’t know if it’s more difficult to admit that or the fact that I’ve been playing it since it’s release date on November 23, 2004. Either way, 5 + years (give or take a few breaks) seems like a bit much to play the same game. I don’t know if it’s the freedom to go anywhere and do anything, or the fact that I’ve become acquainted with several people through the game and just enjoy playing with them as opposed to the 13 year old kids that cry on Xbox Live. Either way, I’ve given thought recently to how I would go about weening myself off this past-time, since I’ve been about as successful trying to quit cold turkey as I have been with cigarettes. Then I remembered a banquet I served for Al-Anon, and learned something from my mother that day – People will often free themselves from an addiction by replacing it with a new one. Sure as shit, every person in that room who was proud to be sober for x-amount of time was sucking down cigarettes or chugging coffee like it was going out of style.
Onward. I realized that the easiest way to slowly kill my addiction was to replace it. Recently, I discovered the substance that WoW only served as a gateway drug for:

What you just saw was Lego Evil Dragons and Shit try to ruin the Lego world, and all the noble Lego-people (knights, racecar drivers, astronauts, construction workers, ninjas, pirates) setting aside their petty squabbles and banding together to defeat this purple and black force. I, for one, cannot wait. Every time I hit that point where I want to stop playing a particular game (i.e. Grand Theft Auto 4, Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, Left4Dead, Left4Dead2) a new game comes out that piques my interest.
On the topic of Video Games, I also present you with a mash-up I came across as well:
