Well written.

I would love to see a wider shot of that place, looks fun. LAN partys are fun and social like internet cafe's and not very far apart.

At LAN party's gamers tend to have the same sleep skipping habits. I always thought it to be because the only big New England LAN party is only twice a year if your lucky. So you don't sleep to get it all in.

I never actually thought about what it would be like to play in a place like that but I'm sure its akin to a casino.. They pump in the oxygen and don't allow daylight to keep you sitting there way longer than you wanted to.

Its also probably hard to quit for the night when you look around and see 30-40 more real people still going strong.

My interpretation of the opium comment is it's a parallel to Karl Marx's comment that religion is an opium for the people. Perhaps the Chinese government see MMO's as a new religion....
