    MMOs aren’t called “massive” for no reason. Log on at any time of day, and someone will be on too. A study recently found that 76.2 percent of males and 74.7 percent of females had made good friends within a game. But platonic relationships aren’t all…
  2. LOVE IS IN THE AIR!

    Since you’ll be meeting people from all over the world, you can pick up some basic lingo too!

    And helping people feels good. Whether that’s with a raid boss or a life crisis.

    Friends are friends whether they’re online or not. If you have a problem and need some advice, you’re online friends will gladly help you out. The benefit of online friends is the variety of different people in your friend circle. You could be talking to an 80-year-old that has a lifetime’s worth of experience or an insightful 14-year-old.
  7. Hanging out on your time

With MMOs, you either log on, or you don’t. If you’re not online, you can enjoy some “me time” guilt free.
