"Increasingly, new communication technologies allow communities to form among players as we or they share in the gaming experience."--Williams and Smith
Modern games help the lonely find the loner. Much like myspace or facebook, any type of medium that enables communication is bound to form a community of sorts. And I think that everyone is guilty of flowing into some click. For example, Joe (spitwad 38) gets on his Xbox everyday at 2 p.m., Kenny (meatball007) gets on his at 2 everyday. Together a small community grows. I think that important not to isolate society. By having communicapable devices, aliviates lonliness. Communities are also formed by word of mouth. I know I constantly talk about it, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a very popular game at the moment. I know how many people I've talked to about the game, and how many people they've talked to. That builds a network of people interested in the same game. It continues to grow from there. The growth never ends. I would like to discuss more about communities built by games in the future.
