Luckily, that didn't stop Anthony Rosner.

We have featured Rosner once before, when, in his short film, he talked about how isolated he became during his years of playing World of Warcraft. And now, he's here to tell us what happened since then, in his trademark, tongue-in-cheek style: how he faced the release of WoW's new expansion, The Mists of Pandaria, and how his first video, which earned him considerable popularity, helped change his outlook on life.

It is an inspirational tale, for sure. We're gamers—many of us, at any point, could come to face a situation where our hobby threatens to take over our lives. Rosner's example shows that if it does happen, there is a way to regain control—if you're willing to work for it.
