Eve Online

I saw this in my newsfeed today. This is from one of the online games that we covered in class: Eve Online. The video just shows how serious people take this game. It almost looks like a news report for a future where we are at war in space.

One thought on “Eve Online

  1. This is a great post about video games and the understanding of the online video game community. Especially games like EVE online that are taken seriously, to the point that currency in the game can be accurately reflected in real life. Just to add to this post, two years ago EVE online had a huge loss in terms of currency and collapse of the virtual economy through an online war. An artcile on Forbes states that the total estimates of the losses incurred by players during the height of the battle range from $300,000 to $500,000, most of that coming from the wreckage of massive “Titan” space-ships, which cost between $3,000 and $3,500 a piece in real money”. This can be put into relation to the post, as video games are peoples occupations, taken seriously, and can even have a giant net worth.
