Default The Great Scam, an EVE Online Tale

Quote:
All I could think about during the day was returning to Eve. Calculus equations, physics problems, the musings of long-dead authors, all these things meant nothing to me now, for I was well on my way to becoming a virtual pimp. I drove home like a maniac that day, darting in and out of traffic and speeding through crowded city intersections. I sprinted to my computer and started Eve, my heart warming at the gentle glow of the galaxy sun. I netted about 1.5 million more credits by 7 PM, when HardHead logged on. He wasted no time in messaging me.
an entertaining read about EVE Online

Addiction is a dangerous game?

Play it and never let it play you?

I read up on EVE after reading this story; and I must say that it sounds very interesting; but the cool thing (for me) would be to walk around your own ship as a 3D character. it seems this is not the case in EVE, you are your ship; you can never leave it and wander around... :/
