Recently, I brought up a controversial topic, though at the time I didn’t realize how controversial it was.
The gist of it: I said Second Life is not a game. It’s a place you may find games or play them when you’re logged into it, but the world itself is not the game.
Based on the furious responses, you’d have thought I brought up politics.
This isn’t just my opinion. The creators of Second Life say it’s not a game.
“Second Life is an online multimedia platform that allows people to create an avatar for themselves and have a second life in an online virtual world… In many ways, Second Life is similar to massively multiplayer online role-playing games; nevertheless, Linden Lab is emphatic that their creation is not a game: ‘There is no manufactured conflict, no set objective‘” – WIKIPEDIA
What SL is: A virtual world. It can be used for fun, education, artistic expression, or communication with friends. There’s really no limit.
