What drives 50 million people into virtual worlds? What do they get out of it that they are not getting anywhere else? Is there a lack of understanding for the new generation – the Digital Natives? In the mainstream media, synthetic worlds are mostly portrayed as a fringe phenomenon for social outcasts. Sex, violence, addiction and antisocial behaviour are often at the core of news reports. Login 2 Life explores the lives of several people, who live, love and hate, make money, friendship and even share intimacies within digital worlds. Are they groundbreaking pioneers of a lifestyle that will be commonplace in the near future? A future where digital life is a natural part of being?
