    So in WoW or w/e you don't have live, social interaction with other humans?
    I am not sure that's accurate.
    I may be wrong.

    There is also human interaction within video games.

    It's not at all accurate. It's called a multiplayer game for a reason. People interact with each other all the time. The only difference is that it's not in person like an old-school boardgame. (I don't play, btw, but my brother used to)

    Or, you may want to re read the post and what I was responding to.

    Exactly. Real names are seldom used and there is no live contact with body language etc. I can;t see why this is so difficult to understand.

    But there's still human interaction, I don't get why you have to hate.

    Of all the people I know, work with, am friends with, am acquaintances with and the conversations we have, video games is never a topic.

    Again, I exist in the real world.
    I have never played a video game.

    Possibly because it's not what you said in the last post. You said "no social interaction with real people" which there actually is quite a lot of in any given MMO. Is it the same as sitting around a dining room table with a bunch of people? Of course not. But neither is talking on the telephone, and no one in their right mind would argue that that's not a social interaction with a real person.

    That's a sad admission.
