"Hey, gamer! Are you an antisocial, friendless shut-in who wouldn’t know how to interact with another flesh and blood person if one walked up and bit you on the controller?"
I answered "yeah, pretty much." But it links to an article on the BBC website that states that this really isn't true. Between multiplayer gaming and casual talk between people in the workplace about games like Halo 3, gaming can really be a very social experience. I've talked with a few people about gaming, mostly at work, but they have XBox 360's and I don't (I'm still in the last gen, with PS2 and Gamecube) so I'm more of a spectator. But that's fine.
