A LAN party?

Adam and his friends introduced us to a new phenomenon (well, new to us at least). He and 3 of his friends have congregated in our basement with their computers, monitors, power cables,  and a local area network (LAN) switch for the weekend. Once connected through this switch, they all play a video game together just as if they were in separate locations.

Probably makes sense if you like to interact virtually with people even though they're sitting right next to you. I guess it would be like me texting Wendy to ask if she could pass the pepper. Fun to do once, just because you can, but I don't see any practical value in it myself. Maybe I am not as much of a geek as I thought I was...
