By "external interactions

By "external interactions with an opponent" what do you mean? I agree that gamming interactions do not need to be limited to a online or "IM" messaging. But many games and even video games have added components to them where you can talk as if on the telephone to your oponents. I do not think that these interactions should replace real life interactions but they are great additions in advancing technological communication. These people/gammers have the opportunity to engage in conversations while playing games that they really enjoy. This works great if they have no-one in their proximity that plays the game they do. Can you think of ways to communicate through games that may be similar to comunicating in person?
