Obsessable interview: Raptr founder Dennis Fong

As the popular misconception of the gamer-loner continues to break down, a number of companies are jumping in to provide new tools and services that connect gamers together in what is already by nature a social activity. Obsessable had a chance recently to sit down with Dennis "Thresh" Fong, once pro gamer turned Silicon Valley serial entrepreneur, to discuss his new gamer social networking service Raptr and its goal to connect you with your friends in realtime as you play across platforms and genres. The full interview touches on why gaming is an ideal cultural match for a social network, the cross-platform habits of gamers, and the value of aggregating your various "gaming identities" into a single public profile.
