    It was far and away the most antisocial thing we could have done. It was putting a thing between our interpersonal interactions, despite the fact that we were in the same room.

My brother-in-law once had a friend over at his house and they played Halo together, in separate rooms, over Xbox Live. It was incredibly sad but they saw nothing wrong with it. Things like that really make you reflect on your relationships with people.
