Seriously, one of the main reasons I don't think Blizzard is Illuminati (A very vague all-encompassing word to me really) is because for all it's
faults, and it's layers upon layers of ways to become addicted, I think it's pretty obvious that it does benefit 15 million people in the fact that
it teaches critical thinking. There is no way around it...I've played for three years, and if there's one thing that has transferred itself from
the virtual world to the real life world, it's that I tackle sticky situations far more effectively than I had been capable earlier, so much so that
I am compelled to afford this transfer at least a respectful awareness. And if there's one thing the Illuminati can certainly do without, it's
critical thinkers. In my mind, this one fact alone has the merit to completely wipe away this theory.
Perhaps Blizzard is actually the exception, an example of the free-market system actually working for a change. The producers of this game understand
markets and demographics as well as or better than the other guy is all, and the keep the program running with as much novelty as they can muster for
they know that's what the average consumer wants most. Brilliance is a word that seems to come to mind...certainly not "Illuminati".
Of course, I don't see any Illuminati condemning it either. I'm sure they might appreciate the credit (and the pocket change) of such a clever
distraction, but if real life wasn't so screwed up to such a large swath of civilization, I doubt Blizzard would have gone anywhere more than their
own garages...let alone BlizCon™ LOL
