Final Practicum Post!

Finally, we’re made it – the end of the Practicum Project! I’ve done a little more playing on WoW, completing more quests and even went up another level. I’m starting to really get the hang of things and look forward to continuing my WoW account after this project. I’ve never considered myself much of a “gamer,” but this experience has truly changed my perception of myself.

I looked at the Wikipedia article on WoW, and noticed that there wasn’t a whole lot to change – these people had the game pretty much down to a “T.” I inserted a little clarification on one of the sentences – a clarification that I pulled from Kyra’s lecture on female gaming. The sentence read: “Reviewers felt that these changes in pacing would make the genre more accessible to casual players,” and after “casual players,” I expanded saying “- those who play for short periods of time.” I know this is subtle,a and for many would not need explaining, but I felt it was a helpful tidbit of information for inexperienced gamers and ultimately adds to the article.
