No Real Lifers

Saturday, February 14, 2009

Every single person I play with in LOTRO I did not know before I played LOTRO - and I have never met any one of them in real life. They are all new in-game friends. That is awesome on one hand. Expand my social contacts. On the other hand, I would absolutely love to play with one of my "real life" friends. (I really don't know what word to use to differentiate here. All of them exist in real life somewhere...) The problem is, I have yet to find one that would be interested. Those of my friends that do play MMOs, well, they've either canceled their subscriptions due to money and/or time constraints or they play other MMOs, most notably WoW.

I'll have to keep trying to win them over from the "dark side." Hehe. Honestly, WoW is a good game, but my love lies in LOTRO. I'd love to share that with some of my other friends.

To differentiate, I say "long distance" and "local" friends. I kind of hate "IRL friends" -- playing the game is part of my life, so they're my 'real life' friends.

It's all real life.

That's a good way of saying it, thanks.
