A Starcraft Geek
Starcraft? Witchcraft? Heheeh... funny.

I wouldn't call videogame addiction evil, but possibly problematical.
As for the word \"starcraft\" ominously resembling \"witchcraft\" -- what about handicraft (hey, don't those women have what are called \"sewing circles,\" just as witches' covens are called \"circles\"?) or woodcraft (hey, that one even starts with a \"w\" too!)? What about Kraft Cheese 'n' Macaroni, is it evil too?
While the husband's videogame hobby may (and I emphasize *MAY*) be a problem, Jill's hypersensitivity to links with E*V*I*L though linguistic coincidence is pretty hard to take seriously.

No, Heroes of Might and Magic is not evil. It is addictive enough that it ought to come with a warning sticker ... but that's about it.

I wouldn't say, given her context, it's a problem...at least yet. It's not interfering with his life...just his wife's view of it. Of course, I'm assuming early to be 5 or 6 in the morning. If we're talking, like, Midnight, and getting hours and hours in, yeah, it's a problem.

Are you Jack Thompson's wife or something?

:p Starcraft isn't about magic using starlight. It's about space warfare. No need for shallow condemnation at all! IF you have a beef with the space warfare thing, that's OK, but none of this wrangling over "-craft" and "evil pictures".

Actually, I think DemonBuster has condemned all of those things. Because they sound like witchcraft. Maybe even Kraft dinner.

This sounds like a nice, quiet husband escaping from Fundycrapland every chance he gets. A nice relaxing diversion from stupidia.
