Did anyone see the MMORPG documentary Second Skin at SXSW?
I'm curious because the story from the official weblog seems to be that gamers are wildly enthusiastic about the film. The Escapist says: "gamers walk away feeling like they had seen seen their life story, with
slick editing, a peppy soundtrack, and the seductive polish of an Apple
commercial." On the other hand, this opinion at Gamasutra says: "As the lights dimmed, I was excited to explore how interactive media is
changing our experience of ourselves. But instead, I just wound up
feeling sorry for the losers playing World of Warcraft." Eric Zimmerman's comment (scroll down on that link) seems to accord with that: "I was distressed by a film that seemed to be a parade of gross stereotypes, most of which were clearly negative."
Who is right?
