I thought Darkon was going to be cool, but this looks even more interesting. It’s a documentary film about the ways, positive and negative, in which MMORPGs like World of Warcraft, Everquest and others have affected people’s lives. You’ve got the addict, the shut-in, the bloomer, the romantic, it looks like every popular kind of story associated with the genre is represented here, and the people look pretty real.
Sometimes I think I have a problem when I get deep into TF2 or FFXII for a weekend, but this is an entirely different lifestyle. I look forward to checking it out. Plus, you get to check out other people’s rigs and setups, which is always interesting.
