The lack of a tiny bit of social interaction between strangers is the reason gamers are misunderstood by non-gamers.
'In my youth, it wasn’t uncommon to have a group randomly congregate around Street Fighter. A tiny micro-culture would appear, and unspoken rules of sportsmanship would be understood. Everyone waiting their turn, watching for weak points in the previous match winner’s gameplan. Placing a quarter on the glass would signal that you were next in line.' I miss those days. :(
