It's a place for furries and other sexual deviants to hang out and have virtual sex.

Really its just a big open sandbox for people to do whatever they want to do, build anything they want and such.

No, there are no quests, leveling, or skills or anything like that.

You can start a business and make real money. Some have quit their jobs and just play second life for a living.

Its really quite stupid, theyve even gotten publicity on news programs because they have "live" concerts and **** on there with bands, I think I read that KORN did a live show on there or something.

That's all the reason I need to stay far away.

but its not live. its all in a stupid vurtuial world. it just seems kind of silly considering there isnt any point. no mission, no ending. just people running around living vitual lives. thats ompletely pointless, when they could go out and meet real people and have real lives

i tried out second life one day.

I logged in.

Entered the world only to see bloody real life advertisements EVERYWHERE.
Logged out immediately.
Uninstalled from my PC.
The End.

I haven't tried it myself (nor will I ever, unless IBM makes me since they're pushing Second Life pretty hard right now, to my dismay), but I've read quite a bit about it. Basically you login and get some land (you may have to buy it, I can't remember for sure) and then you can start modelling objects in 3d to sell. There's some way to convert their virtual money into real money (and vice versa of course). But no, there's no real point other than trying to duplicate real life in an MMO, which frankly sounds boring as hell to me. I mean sure, you can be someone different, but in the end it's still based on real life so there's not much to do if you're not a sexual deviant (see my next paragraph). Although the flying penii that attacked a press conference somebody held in Second Life once were pretty funny.:D

Of course, then there's the "adoption centers" which are places that perverts meet to fulfill child rape fantasies (apparently some people get off on being the child in that situation too). Essentially it's like MySpace only much worse.

that stuff sounds horibble. its like al thos people in MMO's that are guys (or girls) and pretend to be the other sex, just to be perverted. ugh. disgusting

I think it's free to download and try, but you have to be over 18.

Ok, there is Second Life as it was envisioned, and Second Life as it is.

A friend of mine brought me into Second Life because he was ranting and raving about all the creativity he was finding. During the Muhammad cartoon BS, some guy turned his avatar into one of the comics, the one with Muhammad with a bomb in his turban. He even made the bomb explode sending people flying. There were tons of hillarious things like this.

You can create anything you want in the game. You can create 3D models, upload your own artwork to texture them, program them to do whatever you want. I made a giant floating eyeball with 3 mutated pupils that followed me everywhere and would ram people on command then return to me. Things like were the purpose of Second Life. To try to exercise your creativity in a virtual world.

I only played for a week because everyone else I met was a furry, trying to sell cybersex, or roleplaying being an elf-*****/13 year old anime *****/catgirl *****/40 year old virgin's wet dream.

But I suppose that is fairly representative of the internet as a whole.

I just downloaded it out of curiosity and I made a pretty horrible looking character.

It looked like a deformed naked pregnant... man...

With a long black mullet and way too much makeup.

My understanding is that it's like a MMORPG without the gameing aspect. It's kind of like the Matrix with much worse graphics. People log into it to be/do something they can't/aren't in real life.

Did you run into any of the bad loading times that I've heard about? Like you'll be standing somewhere and stuff keeps popping in around you as it downloads from the server? Apparently in some places it's really horrible, like in malls where it will take minutes for everything to load.

I didn't play it much, but yeah I noticed it took a while for things to load in. For example, textures will be horribly blurry when they first show up, but they progressively get sharper as they download.
