players are everywhere. They’re in your local grocery store,
sitting next to you on an airplane, href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/61225" target="_blank">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 href="http://tentonhammer.com/node/64550" target="_blank">heard
about an individual who did just that. His name is href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1762344/" target="_blank">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 target="_blank">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.
