Social Networks of Video Games and Gaming

Online social networking, groups, and web sites are interacting and reaching out with no geographical boundaries or limitations. The intersections and crossroads have united many who otherwise would never had met.

The numerous social networks that surround the Video Games and Gaming World are not only growing by leaps and bounds, but also attracting extremely loyal and tenacious fans. Mixing, melding, and forging the uber pwnage of video gamers and the interaction of a social networking togetherness you only get with an online cooperation formed into a web site.

Chat rooms and forums; in game chat and party groups; and guilds and clans design the social aspect of the online gaming industry. From the simplicity of the flash based games like Ogre Island, to the complex downloadable PC console games like World of Warcraft the online gaming world has come from a diverse beginning.

The earliest PC games of Solitaire, Backgammon, Pinball, and Hearts warped into a series of Doom style RPG’s. Most of this original game play was solitary. With the invention of Its Your Turn’s creative ingenuity, we began to take solitary turns together. One player at a time taking his or her play turn and sending email alerts to the other as the game progresses. Ultima Online was a major player in the MMORPG sector of social interaction in gaming. With the emergence of Blizzard Entertainment came the opportunity for gamers across the nation to connect and compete in mass PVP wars complete with a pre game chat feature. This feature allows you to socialize and chat with other players before actually entering game play to better know your opponents and allies.

Soon after came the outbreak of in game chat. While chat boxes early on were extremely basic only allowing simple text and minimal emote options, they have evolved into a major beast powering the gaming industries social connection and actually spawning new ideas for development. These new chat features include multiple chat channels and hundreds of emotes which are text commands that create sound and motions. Examples are: /hug, /wave, /dance and for you Age of Empires players /boo which will play an audible audience of “booers” dissing your opponent.

Game developers are increasing the time spent on statistics figuring out how to leverage and apply growth to social networks by introducing new and competitive games, creating a subset of gamers in the social networking arena of the Internet. Global reach has unlimited the geography factor by initializing influence to an audience if infinite proportion. While gamers have always been cloned into a bundle, class, or faction of their own, seemingly separate and disconnected from the masses involved in the online social networking movement, I say gamers are the force behind the socialization age of technology.

In your quest for virtual worlds, social networks, and online community interactions, keep your Eagle Eye Hunter ability activated and begin to notice the explosion that is online video games and gaming.

Avatars United Social Network for Video Games and Gamers

Avatars United

Avatars United

What an outstanding Video Games and Gaming Social Network! Avatars United is loaded with gamers from Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, Second City, from IMVU and Meez, to Gaia Online (and soon to be Ogre Islanders). With Forums, Events, Worlds, Photos, Videos, and more, there is never a dull moment over at Avatars United.

This Video Games and Gaming Social Network is a creation or compilation of Avatar based toons or characters from the Virtual Worlds of the Internet. Our individual personalities created and envisioned in our toons are our online personalities here on Avatars United. With the frowning upon of “Reality” based photos, videos, and bios, this is a unique and well thought out concept by the creators of Avatars Online.

Wavecritter recently created the new group Ogre Islanders, so stop by and give Avatars Online a look )

Wavecritter’s Vacation :)

Hiya everyone 🙂 I have been vacationing on the island. I have been sorting through the multiple blogs, social networks, radio shows, and other sites I have spending time on and have whittled the list down to my very favorites as to focus on the ones I can better manage. I absolutely love to post on different Blogs and Social Networks and enjoy doing reviews on these sites 🙂 I also enjoy Video Games and Gaming, with a few favorites and am currently working on a few very cool sites along these lines.

Let me tell you a bit about my venture and vacation over the past four weeks 🙂

This is one of the coolest places I have ever been with a couple of large towns surrounded by various smaller ones. The people of this community are the absolute best and interaction with them is always a joy. There is always something new and exciting happening so be sure not to blink 🙂

Visiting the various landscapes of the island is an adventure in itself. On one side of the island are lush forested landscapes and farther to the east are desert lands, some sprinkled with palm trees and beautiful water features. Areas so vast that you may not come across another person for long stretches of time and towns packed to the gills, where you interact and make countless friends.

With so much to keep you busy, there is never a dull moment. If you enjoy some great fishing spots, this is the place for you. Ready areas to cook them up are available for your pleasure and experience as well. I become an expert in one of the activities they have to offer having fun and gaining experience along the way. Parties and groups get together regularly to travel into charted and uncharted territories. Get points with the island owners by ridding the towns of unwanted visitors and enemies using your gifted skills. A most relaxing and fulfilling vacation spot.

The towns are equipped for travelers from across the globe with banks, vendors for countless items, transportation, and food. The weather is always beautiful on the island as it hasn't rained in some time, seemingly never 🙂 Always a friendly experience with helpful characters and visitors.

So…where am I talking about? Hmmmm….what is this island and where is it located? The Caribbean? Off Key West's Coast or Florida's East Coast?…

Nope 🙂 OgreIsland.com Come and visit Woodly, Wavecritter or Wyverex and give us a wave (type in /wave) to say hello 🙂

Like Our New Banner Here at Blog Talk Radio Video Games and Gaming?

Banners are fun to make at My Banner Maker. It is a free site to create your own banner anytime. We threw one together on a question from a friend about how to put a photo or image onto the description area here at Blog Talk Radio 🙂

It’s not real difficult to place HTML coding in your description area. Just go to settings, then onto My Options, Page Profile Description Box, and insert HTML code for your photo or image or banner. Add the < br > after the code, before the text (no spaces on the br code), type in your text and there you go.
