Main topic: Gaming as Socialising (23:14)
Part of the fun of gaming is not actually the game itself, but the hanging out with friends that it causes. Whether you are friends outside of the game, or get together just to do this
particular thing, or barely know each other, there is a whole realm of interactions that the game is part of, but is not necessarily all about the game. As part of our “Why we game” series we talk about the socializing that goes on around and about the game.
Todd: Plugging Hammers of Misfortune (The Grain)
Reek: To the beat up guy on the red line: You didn’t get anything in, just go home.
Timo: I am a hideous leper.
Tom: Stark Trek is way too fucking blase about revolutionary technology.
Megan: When I watch bad reality TV, I’ll do the exact opposite.
