So this guy and I have been getting pretty serious. But then again so has his gaming. All he does is sit on his computer and play WoW. When I ask him to come over he says "But sweetie, WoW needs me." I'd continue to attempt at convincing him to come over, but nothing changes. He's starting to say stuff like "WoW is life!" And when we're talking he'll call me a "scrub" and say "get rektd" or "Ohhh shots fired!!" He wants me to start playing with him, but I don't want to start, be a noob and eventually turn into a gamer on the pc because I don't want to get addicted and neglect my responsibilities. I already play on xbox, and that addiction is bad enough. I really care about him but the struggle to make us official, and turn off the game is becoming a nuisance. Especially with the new expansion they had yesterday. He's 22, and I'm 19 with a child. (My son not his) We even fought about this a couple days ago when he said a relationship doesn't fit into his life, it only complicates it and distracts him. But when he thought I was going to walk away (which I wasn't because I care too much) he cried and couldn't help but feel guilty. He kept apologizing saying how it was all his fault, and how he's never has someone care like me so he doesn't know what to do. I ended up falling for him, but being friends is hard for us, and getting into a relationship is harder. I like having him in my life. But is it worth the stress. 3-4Months btw.

I make games for a living, so my life is full of gamers. The problem is not that he plays WoW, I know lots of people that can balance MMO gaming with real life. Your BF, however, does not sound like he is properly balancing gaming and responsibility.
The fact that you have not been dating long, and he is already avoiding spending time with you to game, means that this relationship is not going to last. If he is not willing to spend time with you in the early stages of a relationship, he certainly won't later when the 'newness' has worn off.
This is not about him being a gamer, it is about him not giving you enough attention. It wouldn't matter if he was into sports, or always going out to bars with his friends, or anything. Gaming is just his personal vice, and it is how his lack of commitment to you is manifesting.
The fact that you have a son makes it even more important that you find someone capable of managing their time. This guy does not seem like he will be a long-term solution for you, just more of a developing problem.0
