Reader Discussion – How Do Games Connect You To Community?

With Miiverse closing down tonight forever, it marks one of the first major communities from a console manufacturer is shuttering.

The last few hours of the community are interesting, with a number of people lamenting the end of a community they spent years with and mourning all the time they invested into a service that has now shut down.

It has gotten me thinking about how many communities gaming has gotten me into, and connected me to people. People I know today I met through gaming over a decade ago, either playing games with them or talking about games with them.  I am still part of communities that have gaming at their core.

How about you? How has gaming connected you to communities or helped you find lifelong friends? Let us know below in the comments!
