When a friend of mine failed to get into any of the grad schools he applied to, his Warcraft play time went waaaay up, like to 8 hrs a day. "It's terrible because it makes you feel like you're really accomplishing something." It's been my substitute for accomplishment at some sad times, too. As for the social aspect, did they have the subjects dungeon crawl for six hours with 2 kids whose conversation consists entirely of "lawlz" and 2 farmers who don't speak at all before having [Giant Wah-Wah of Power] ninjaed? Just wonderin. And, yeah, I AM playing Warcraft in another window- just a mana break, gotta go!
