I've never played WoW, but I have played Empire, and let me tell you, it wastes a lot more than 6 hours a day! I've been hesitant to play another round after last time, when I spent almost a full week just conquering the world. Got way behind on my work. I personally like the DOS version best. It reminds me so much of some of my early games. Same beautiful graphics and easy controls.

Yes, Empire has been blamed for many students flunking out of university, and at least one divorce!
