seems to point out what a lot of us at Kill Ten Rats have known for years, but it’s an interesting read. It would seem psychologists are finally realizing that these MMO games are social activities and, in some cases, can cause a person to become better at social interactions. This is not to say that it holds true for every gamer. Certainly there are plenty of MMO players who it seems will never learn how to behave around others. What I find most interesting are the romantic facts. The study found that 1 in 10 MMO players develop physical relationships with those they have met in the game world. I’d be interested in seeing how that compares to the success rate on matchmaking websites.
