Is online gaming making us more antisocial?

I Snajper I writes: Let me just say straight off the bat that I love playing online, especially with people off this site and others. But something happened last weekend that made me think about how my gaming has evolved with the advent of Xbox live.

I popped in Call of duty when up popped the message that some of my friends were playing this too. So I sent a message and was invited to join their party. When I joined it was a private room and the guys in there were playing their own rules (only pistol hipfiring, etc) That was all fine and I had a blast playing for the couple of hours or whatever.

Wow, clam down man.

Anyway, I think alot of people mistake the term "antisocial" as someone who never scoializes when really it means to act against the law and display violent, criminal like behaviour.

Now, if the title was; "Is gaming making us schizoid?", then yes, in some ways I would agree.

Face it, online is where its at. This guy didnt mention how crappy the split screen multilayer in COD4 is. You cant even create yur own classes for split screen battles.

I like playing online as its still easy for me to play wth my friends from back in the day even though we live in different cities or states. I may not sit around with my friends like I used to but it wouldnt happen even if I wanted it to as Im no longer an 11 year old kid like when I was playing goldeneye.

Games have moved on, and I think its time for this guy to grow up.
