Sometimes I could play through many of the games I've tried and never get to know anyone. I'm just not really looking for attention.
But if someone's willing to talk, I'm game. 8D It's also like being at the right place, at the right time. I stumbled upon an awesome server in Team Fortress 2 a week into playing the game and stuck with them since. They've kept me coming back and I've made some great friends there.
