It's amazing what people believe in sometimes isn't it.

It's not really a belief system, is it?

I gathered that it's more of a communal thing. People follow religions so that they can be a part of a larger community of people in the same religion. With games like WoW and Second Life, the same sort of social and communal coherence can be achieved.

"It's amazing what people believe in sometimes isn't it.

Yeah like PS4 being on par with a High End PC.

(BF4 = 900p TW3 = 900p)

So yeah it is amazing how a large group of people with similar thoughts and beliefs can wish upon a star and loose sight of reality as they find a little too much joy in one thing.

and this includes WoW Second Life and anything else deemed a religion.

yup , Just look at every single belief out there since the dawn of man. Even flying spaghetti monster is a religion.

It's as real as religion so why not.

Oh no... more religion. Look where it's gotten us all. No offense to those who follow a religion..
