    Very interesting interview. I’ve known for a while now that I’m not a mainstream gamer. For example i got Assassins Creed black flag for PS3 and was excited to to some ‘proper gaming’. I soon discovered though that i was perhaps not the target demography when i unknowingly went ‘off piste’. I spent a good half hour sneaking around a fort only to realise after i had killed everyone that it wasn’t yet time to attack the fort so nothing happened. So grumbling i went on with the game and stumbled upon a group of pirates. I dispatched them HA ARGHHH, only to find that I’m not suppose to dispatch them until later. It was at that point i stopped playing because i got bored.

    One of my favourite things about second life is that anyone can drop anything into the world. Unless the region is set to no rez.
