has anyone, at some time, felt that the only friends they have live in computer games?
I have recently been feeling this way (since a friend of mine died), that the only people that are always there for you are the artificial ones. has anyone else ever chosen the presence of artificial friends over real ones?

We get it. You're depressed.

To contribute, yes. Until about March of '08, most of my friends were virtual.

No, I don't understand how you could possibly do that.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I suppose certain games are designed to make you feel "part of a team" but not quite friends. Online friends yes but entirely fictitious friends nopey.

On the other hand, it pays to be a virtual hooker in WoW. Apparently players in WoW pays virtual WoW currency to virtual hookers in the game. The hooker (probably most likely played by a fat greasy manboy) then sells his virtual currency profit on eBay, Craigslist, etc to other fat greasy WoW loving manboys for real money.

I can honestly say that no, no I haven't.

I have done with books though, but that's completely different, as in, the characters aren't shit.

Upon reading this thread, I thought about the only MMO I'd ever played: Runescape (this was years ago). I just went on my account. It's a hilariously bad game.

Not so much with videogames, more with books.

Maybe some RPGs.

Artificial characters on the computer? Hell no, but the majority of the people I talk to are over the internet and when I used to play WoW I made a lot of "virtual friends" on there, but they were still real people.

There was a time when most of my friends were on FFXI...

Pathetic times indeed but at least there were real people I was talking to.

I would have to say Link. Link was there to kick ass and kill some ****, but he was never really a friend. More like a awesome acquaintance that didn't want to hang out with me.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.
