Second Skin Trailer

Second Skin takes an intimate look at three sets of computer gamers whose lives have been transformed by online virtual worlds. An emerging genre of computer software called Massively Multiplayer Online games, or MMOs, allows millions of users to interact simultaneously in virtual spaces. Of the 50 million players worldwide, 50 percent consider themselves addicted. From individuals struggling with addiction to couples who have fallen in love without meeting; from disabled players whose lives have been given new purpose to gold farmers, entrepreneurs and widows, Second Skin opens viewers’ eyes to a phenomenon that may permanently change the way human beings interact.

This came out a couple years ago, but looks like a good one. I could never play an MMO, takes up too much time. Always have wanted to try one though. This docu looks great.

  1. it’s on netflix’s instant watch, I gave it a go last weekend and was genuinely impressed with how they were able to present the people as they were instead of how the director of the documentary saw them.

    warts and all.
