Each player is another human, sitting in another part of the world, desperately trying to accomplish an objective before you do. However, while many of these interactions may be fleeting and inificant, some have a long-lasting impact on us and blossom into legitimate friendships. Unfortunately, the nature of these friendships means that we can quickly lose touch with the individuals on the other end of the heet. We asked the GameRevolution team about their experiences with striking up friendships with other players online, and how these relationships fizzled away, burnt out, or were cut short due to tragic circumstances. Pete was thoroughly obsessed with the army, but not in an aggressive Mike from Spaced kinda way.
See our ethics statement. When the COVID lockdown kicked in, I asked folks on Twitter to send me stories of how they are coping with loneliness, and how video games can help.

There in the base, I met the rest of the group, from all over the world. We made memories within the community as a whole.
We always stuck together making our bases and causing as much trouble as we could on the servers that we chose to base on. We all had a lot of different personalities from different backgrounds.
I have pictures of me meeting everyone for the first time as well as some in-game screenshots of memories we all shared. Discord or Reddit are also great ways to find a good community. Any place where you can find a good discussion about games, you will be able to find good people to talk to or play with.
