As someone who played World of Warcraft I had some form of personal connection to this article. I often bumped into “Gold Farmers” in WoW, and witnessed alot of the negative connotation that went along with it, and the views “normal” players had towards them. Since my paper was on third world gaming, this is something that has always stood out to me. That image of like 100 people in a room lined row to row with computers, monotonously performing the same task for 12 hours a night, yielding little reward.
