Well i watched this documentry about Online gamers called "second skin" it was pretty interesting tbh, it was strange to know the reality of being addicted, there was plenty of people on there which have lost marriages, lost jobs, friends, all because of online games. there was even one guy who actualy shot himself dead, while playing Everquest, killed himself at his computer desk. there was also some nice change arounds which you seen people addicted, they lose all electricty and power and have no choice but to stop playing and because of this, this person got a job, done his house up, and lost about 4-5 stone. i got some stats off the documentry here 50 milion people play an MMORPG 1 in 3 female gamers date someone they met in a virtual world for every 1 female gamer there are 10 males Half of MMO players say they are addicted (25 million) 1 in 5 say they are residents of a virtual world 4 out of 5 are in a guild there are over 100,000 gold farmers in china Nearly 50% of online gamers value there online friends the most 1 in 3 gamers have told people online a secret they have never told anyway in real world 25% of mmo gamers are between 12-19 15% over 30 60% between 20-35 (pretty random stats, i probably mist a few which would of put them together better) it was all about how people are moving towards online gaming, because online gaming takes them away from the harsh reality of the real world, and how every year the online gaming community is growing missively each year, is the world and real world communitys this bad, that people want to get away from it all and live in a box ?, and value there online "friends" they have never met more. Do you know someone whos addicted, or know people who have dated through online gaming ? i cant explain it all myself, but it was a good documentry for pc online gamers, it was over a hour and a half long.
