Under the username, "SnowMoonHowl," I roamed around the different worlds that this world had to offer. After a couple of minutes of playing, I have not only realized how strange this world is, but how much it tries to blend in with the "real" world. For example: How much an avatar can represent the user.
Yes, I do not dress and look like my avatar, but it is what I felt was right for me. The rest of the avatars had wings, and weird clothing that you wouldn't normally see in our own society. Many of the women also just walked around naked or barely dressed. And yet, in games like this, it becomes the norm instantly before our eyes. Walking in the game, no one questioned my clothing or why I wanted to wear it, they just told me I looked great and went off with the rest of their daily second lives.
Another interesting thing is where you might be able to go. This place has so many sub places that you can visit, depending on what you are into. I visited a club, out of curiosity, and all I saw were avatars dancing with each other on the dance floor. Which just made me think about the fact that each of those avatars, is just another person on their computer, WATCHING all the fun, instead of going out and experiencing it themselves. I also learned that even in the game world, the club scene isn't for me. Instead, I spend most of my time in Wonderland, sitting on a bottle of 'Shrink Me', thinking, while sitting in the "real" world, sitting on my computer, watching my avatar, and thinking. (Weird cycle)
The last thing I noticed is the social interaction. On my first hour in the game, another avatar approached me (I will not state his username out of respect). He just started talking to me and made it very clear that he had an interest to me. Something I still don't understand, due to the fact that it was obvious that neither of us looked liked out avatar. We talked a bit and he added me as a friend. After asking me more than once, I finally agreed to go with him to the beach (I guess the place he felt more comfortable being). There we sat and had one of the most interesting conversations ever. I will not say any specifics, but he just kept bringing the conversation back to sex and drinking. And all that time, I just kept wondering if he wasn't just some 8 year old kid or 40 year old woman, just bored at home.
