Reality Sucks

Second Skin is a visually stunning documentary about video game addiction. Following the lives of seven avid gamers, Second Skin offers an insight into World of Warcraft and Everquest players who devote a significant amount of their social life to virtual reality.

This documentary lets the gamers speak for themselves and refuses to push a single interpretation or agenda. Highly recommended!
