I won't disagree that this game doesn't form friendships but I'm not sure how you would classify it as anything but a game. I play on a soccer team in an adult soccer league. I've formed a lot of friendships through playing soccer. But it's still a game.

We've had people that met in CH get married. WoW has ruined marriages and brought single people together. People have gotten murdered over MMOs and some obsessions related to MMOs have caused the death of children.

There's no doubt that MMOs have impacted many people's lives. But they're still a game.

Absolutely it is a game, but as everone else has stated there is more to it. My argument isnt that its not a game. My argumentis that it is not JUST a game.

Said this before, games are also people's passion, to some talk more than just "a game" and what's wrong with that, who would one be to judge of that, could be just a game to you or more to others.
People's perspectives are all different so I don't see a "right answer" anywhere.

This game looks like it's going downhill. It was fun in the past while it last.

To say the game “is not just a game” doesn’t mean your saying it’s not literally a game. At the end of the day every sane person can acknowledge that this is in fact a game. Look at the statement with more meaning and you will realize that this game isnt just a game, it’s a hobby or a place to meet new people. To say that CH is just a game is to look at the game so blatantly that you don’t realize the role that it plays in your life. A place to relax, find some virtual success, or meet new people it’s not “just a game”.

I love applied science and gaming. There are some really amazing things happening with technology, psychology and games.

You should watch Jane Mogul's "Gaming Can Make a Better World". Games bring people together. That's why they're used as bonding and trust building exercises.

The ? is not if it's just a game or more than it. The ? is morality vs immorality in game. One plays the way he lives. (hi scammers).
