Frosty,

Saying you can't develop friendships through gaming is like saying you can't do it over the phone or via letters/email. I have two good friends that are happily married to people they met online, and will laugh and point at you for that statement. You don't have to stand face to face with someone to become friends. I have many friends in real life, and I have even more online. Many of my old friendships from the past are kept alive thanks to the powers of the internets. Seems to me that you are the one lacking in friendships at this point.

MMO's can be a waste of time if they are played too much. I play them casually, which costs me in the game, but I still have fun, and manage to do my 26 or so real life hobbies as well. Everything in moderation.
