“Nearly 40% of men and 53% of women who play online games said their virtual friends were equal to or better than their real-life friends, according to a survey of 30,000 gamers conducted by Nick Yee, a recent PhD graduate from Stanford U. More than a quarter of gamers said the emotional highlight of the past week occurred in a computer world, according to the survey, which was published by Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press' journal Presence.”
