Online gaming is years from recreating the social setting of tabletop gaming.

No, the tech is all there, the bandwidth, the market is all there. The only thing missing is a developer with the balls/money/desire to do something about it.
The tech is most assuredly NOT there. When was the last time you participated in a 7-way video conference that actually worked? I never have, in spite of working for companies that supposedly rely on remote conferencing. Maps and electronic dice are not the social setting, those are the mechanics, and the absolute least important portions of the experience.
