I picked up the eagerly awaited MMORPG World of Warcraft up on the way home from work. Then I waited while 3.9 gigabytes of data was installed from four cds, I registered, found my wallet so I could sign up to pay $14.99 a month, downloaded* a 20 megabyte patch, waited for it to patch 11,393 files, created a character, and then found all the game servers down. I finally found a server to play on, got on it 3 minutes before it went down for "maintanance" and managed to kill a rat. So far I'm feeling pretty good about my $49.99 (+tax) investment.
* They use Bittorrent for downloading updates which is pretty neat.
