MMORPG.com's "Player In Residence" Jaime Skelton writes this look at gamers and their participation in various charities.
It's Christmas, and the holiday events around the MMO world are in full swing. My inbox has been full over the past few weeks with announcements of parties and exclusive Santa costumes, of how to save reindeer or bring smiles back to the fantasy world – and let's not forget the free gifts for everyone. There's hardly a game that hasn't taken up the Christmas spirit, even if that spirit is heavily biased toward the commercialized holiday of candy canes and flying reindeer.
The season, however – no matter how you celebrate it – is not just about a carnival in red, white, and green. Call me a sap, or a traditionalist, but I do believe that the holiday season is about sharing and giving, which is why I love seeing charitable works spring up in the MMO community. We are, after all, one of the most social groups of gamers that the gaming industry has known, and that puts us in a great position to come together and work toward the good of others.
