“Second Skin takes an intimate look at computer gamers whose lives have been transformed by the emerging genre of Massively Multiplayer Online games (MMOs). World of Warcraft, Second Life, and Everquest allow millions of users to simultaneously interact in virtual spaces. Second Skin introduces us to couples who have fallen in love without meeting, disabled players who have found new purpose, addicts, Chinese gold-farming sweatshop workers, wealthy online entrepreneurs and legendary guild leaders – all living in a world that doesn’t quite exist.”
This documentary seems very interesting to me, why? Because I was one of these people who spent hours in front of the computer playing mmorpg’s and fps’s all the time, until my mom had to disconnect the internet. I still spend about 14+ hours on the computer a day, I just don’t play games on it, I usually edit, lurk, design, blog, and cyber bully most of the time. Now I think im off to play some halo 3 online, peace!
