I had talked in class about my addiction to MMORPG games and how this has led to me having friends from all corners of the world and actually meeting a few of them that live relatively nearby. I want to do a paper, narrative, something about how the internet and online gaming, specifically MMORPG is more of a social network than a game. I am having a hard time creating a narrow enough topic to fit within the paper guidelines and have no idea where to start but have found significant information on the topic. Mostly the topics i found are about how the use of the internet and gaming has made the world alot smaller but many topics about dating websites that im not too interested in. Any narrower ideas would help, ideally i would like to do just talk about how these games are structured and how everyone interacts socially and reflect on the technology that makes it all possible. Does that sound significant enough??
