I rarely play video games but I enjoy them once in a while. I've always said one of the best ways to get to know someone and break the ice on a date is to play video games.
It`s a great way to get a feel for the other person when you`re in stressful and challenging situations. It`s just a thrill! You learn so much about the other person. How they react to problems, how well they work with other people, etc.

know why else it would work? same reason as if you met a girl at a concert or at a baseball game, you have a common interest. This is probably the main reason.
You can make really good friends through gaming though. Last year my TF2 gaming community had a meetup. Most of the people I had never met before IRL but we were all so immediately comfortable with each other it was as if we'd known each other for years (which I suppose we really have).
