Confession time: I watch entirely too many house flipping and home buying TV shows. Some of you might argue that watching anything more than an accidental 10 seconds from channel surfing is probably entirely too much, and I can see where you're coming from.

But for whatever reason, these stupid shows are great stress relievers (the life of a blogger ain't always easy, yo). Except for that Suzanne Whang. Seriously, f*ck her.

Getting back to the topic at hand, Maxim's BFG got two real estate experts to assess the value gaming's most prominent virtual castles. Yes, the real-life housing market is bad enough that "experts" have time to chat about videogames. Neat.

Anyway, the whole thing is incredibly geeky (value is measured in gold coins for crying out loud), but screw it, it's somewhat interesting to think about. Remember, the key word here is "somewhat."
