They’re in your local grocery store, sitting next to you on an airplane, even playing football for your favorite NFL team, but it isn’t very often that we hear about a WoW player winning an Oscar. However, just a few short days ago, Ten Ton Hammer heard about an individual who did just that. His name is Steve Preeg and while he may not be Brad Pitt, he did win an Oscar for visual effects in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. After his star treatment at the Oscars award show, Steve was kind enough to sit down with Ten Ton Hammer and talk about his career along with some World of Warcraft.

Ten Ton Hammer: Obviously you’re a big MMO gamer. When and how did you start gaming? Did you start with World of Warcraft, or were you involved with different games before that?

Steve:
I played a decent number of games, but the first MMO I really tried was City of Heroes. That one didn’t last that long for me because the end-game content is pretty limited, but I started playing WoW pretty much right when it came out, and I’m still playing. That’s obviously a credit to the game design. It’s kept my attention for four years.
