If you play online games could you answer a question? -for WRP

As many of you know I'm researching the postivie effects of video games. I would love a quote from someone about why you enjoy playing Online Video Games (ex, World of Warcraft, Ragnarok, Halo, etc) If you could also talk about the social aspect of these games that would be great. Thanks a bunch

I like video games, and the ones I play most are shooting games like Halo or Call of Duty. Almost every guy I know has played Halo, so it's definitely something to talk about when you have nothing else to talk about. Despite what people think, playing video games together can be a bonding experience, b/c you can laugh at eachothers mistakes and chill with eachother.

I think online games are much differen than typical video games because you have the opportunity to role-play and interact with others. Even though people may not be themselves while playing World of Warcraft, it still gives the player a chance to socialize. I enjoy online games, especially World of Warcraft, because it's not reality. I don't play the game all the time or allow my brain to melt while playing them, but it can be a nice break from the world. Also, there are so many possibilites that can happen in video games; its so different from everything else. Its fun to join a world that doesn't really exist and pretend to be someone you're not.

You probably wouldn't benefit from a quote from me :) but I would like to give you a link about World of Warcraft because you mentioned it and it may be an interesting article for you to counter in your paper. http://us.i1.yimg.com/videogames.yahoo.com/feature/wedding-woes-the-dark-side-of-warcraft/1186366

Some games like Guitar Hero or Rock Band aren't only fun to play. they help with things, ex. if your running a backhoe playing those sorts of games could help with how good you run them. Personally i play games just to have fun, and to chill with my friends. P.S. visit vide0gamebuzz.wikispaces.com to talk about games.
