Friends without borders: the social significance of video games

As one of the most widely used tools for connecting with friends, video games have become another type of social network.

As one of the most widely used tools for connecting with friends, video games have become a social network. At FITCHIN, we focus on gamers and their larger communities, working non-stop to improve how community members interact with one another, as well as their favorite teams and streamers.

Social interaction is one of the most important aspects of human life. We are social beings, and we need to be part of groups and communities. Video games drive socialization by bringing together people who share an affinity and belong to different games’ gamer communities. On top of that, they allow group members to interact no matter where they are.

Video games can also encourage social interaction in people who struggle to relate to others. People with shyness, insecurity, anxiety, depression and even autism spectrum disorders can all find a safe space in video game-based relationships. Video games let people be themselves without having to worry about meeting others’ expectations. They can respond as much or as little as they like and respect other gamers’ time.

Moreover, video games help people improve their planning, empathy, decision-making, problem solving, logical and deductive reasoning, frustration tolerance and creativity, among other life skills.

Friends without borders

At FITCHIN, we focus on gaming communities and your experience as a community member because you, the gamer, are the essence of video games and esports. Belonging to a community free of borders means being part of something bigger than ourselves.

The globalization brought about by the Internet allows someone to live in Colombia and be a Giants fan or live in Indonesia and follow KRÜ, Furious or Leviathan. What’s more, fans and followers from all over the world can connect and share in their fandom. Enter FITCHIN: a hub that unites and empowers people and communities. We can play games with people in other countries and continents—ping permitting, of course.

What's next

No one can predict what will become of video games or their prominence in society, but there is one budding reality that everyone agrees will be the next stage: the metaverse. Video game metaverses like those in Roblox, Minecraft and Fortnite have been spaces for social interaction for years, most of all for children. Metaverses allow players to meet and interact with friends and strangers alike.

The evolution of metaverses, especially alongside blockchain technology, promises to take that experience to the next level. In these virtual worlds, gamers’ presence will be embodied through their avatar, which they’ll take from metaverse to metaverse to connect with their peers and socialize in unique ways, thereby enhancing their sense of belonging to their communities. At FITCHIN, we put fans and gamers in the driver’s seat so they can reap all the rewards of the metaverse and gamer communities.
