A loser who's going to be significantly richer than any of us in a very short space of time if he knows what he's doing. And he seems to know what he's doing. As he himself mentioned, it wouldn't be the first time an expensive virtual property has made more money than it cost. He's already earned a 5-digit sum of cash from the game.

Okay, I have been playing for two hours and have made a profit of ten cents selling sweat. You can't imagine how humbling it is begging the people in expensive looking armor (While I am in a hideous orange jumpsuit) to buy my sweat for fractions of a cent. I am, however, a bit lucky in that I found a mentor who gave me some basic items worth a combined $4, hopefully once I can afford some ammo for my rifle I can start making a lot more money hunting. Dung, sweat, and fruit seem to be in low demand right now...

RL (real life) is so much better. Games were made to appeal to the hearing and visual senses. RL appeals to "touch" as well as visual and hearing.

Reality provides you with the best graphics card and monitor availablel; it has the best textures and details. The most realistic surround sound, to top it off you have real things you can touch and feel ,eg, woman. So why the hell would you want to exist in a game where all the elements are inferior compared to reality?

Maybe because there is just something about creating a new life within a game and having fun, while at the same time having the chance to make some money in the process?

But I hear RL has no respawn points. What if I get lag out there and die!?

Seriously, if this guy can make more money off it than what he bought it for, you guys have no right to call him a loser.

That's why you try not to die, you go heal up at hospitals.
