Okay... I heard many calling IMVU a game and even trying to argue about it!

IMVU... IM... Instant Messaging... Versus Us!!! Ok just ignore the Versus Us... I just don't know what it stand for lol!

But IMVU is a CHAT only, like msn, yahoo and many others, just with a different interface, and instead of smilies you have some funny actions to do. That's it that's all! I'm NOT PLAYING IMVU to have fun... I'm using IMVU to chat and to meet people. Rolling Eyes

And the other funny part, on the official IMVU's forum... I noticed some peoples starting a whole new topic talking about improvements to do in IMVU and it is to add an "adventure mode"....... With dragons and monsters to fight... Personnaly, nooooo comments! Huh...?

Shocked i do have comments Smile
i don't want to fight against monsters... imvu is relaxing time for me (and learning english-time, and meeting people-time,...) i don't want to be stressed out because i can get to the next 'level' or whatever.
So imvu is not a game, yet Confused .

Hah, i'm going to find that forum!
(just read and run away, because they will kill me with their dragons..)

At first for me, IMVU really was a GAME, but i found out that there are many interesting people to meet. It is a good site. It's not a game. It's one kind of contacting people from all over the world. SO HAVE FUN!!!!

I agree....But I also saw many calling IMVU a "game" last night in the forums. It was pretty funny.....Lately though, IMVU feels like a game Shocked

Unless you can get points for killing the "bad guys", IMVU will never be a game. Although, that would be especially great to have when someone's really mean to you. <.<

IMVU is kind of a game though.

You have the metres (even though they aren't working) that tell everyone how many gifts you've recieved, how generous you are.

Now they've introduced the gems to tell people how cool, hot, smart, or whatever a chatter you are.

You can become a developer and if you're in it just for fun you can watch your sales rise or fall. You can, if you wish, compete with others to be the best.

Things like that do make IMVU a game.

mmm well if they could turn it into a game where you can kill annoying avis I would be all for it.Im talking about the perverted dumb*** ones who come in ASL you then either start trying to molestyour avatar or start hitting yours for no reason.I think it would be great if you could just pop their little pixel heads off and get credits for it.And the amount would depend on how annoying these people have been over all in their chat lifetime.


Ignore me just woke up and still working on first cup of caffeine. Razz

It's a bit of both. The whole idea of dressing up your avatar is a game.

But to be honest there is nothing when you sign up that says anything about a game. I remember the letters IM popping up everywhere.

Dammit.

It's not a game.
If it where, it would have to have a goal and a way to lose.

And since there is no goal (Besides from earning credist and making friends) and there is no way to lose (besides meeting a n00b), IMVU is not a game.

A lot of people probably think that IMVU is a game because of the 3d graphics and actions. There are a lot of roleplayers around, but roleplaying happens in any chat!

Lets compare IMVU to MSN for a second..

The avatar is your display picture, the scene is your background and the actions are the emoticons.

CoraJean and xlooneylisax, please try to stay on topic. This is a serious debate.

Imvu is time consuming which is just what I need till I turn 18..Lol (that is when I go job hunting) But I just love how all the people look diffrent...You will never see someone look the same and I like that...Everyone is their own person and that is how it should be

A game some call it. Well No it's not a game at all .
It Is a virtual world of chat where people can play "dress up dolly" but Its a chat clent, And it should not be looked upon as a game ever. There are the Players within Imvu But they are an entirely different type of player. And these people should be given a wide berth.
So, Game ? well what other game has the ability to take your heart and wring it dry? Because If the Person controlling the puppet isn't carefull. And I speak theough sad experience as someone that performs Imvu weddings I have seen a few of these end in disaster with broken hearts on many sides.
So I hate to hear Imvu described as a game. Games are toys, toys are for children And the people within Imvu predominantly should not be children but rather adult.
Its sad though that the adults are no longer allowed to be Adult within IMVU the majority of the adult content in the ap catolog is removed as fast as its submitted so why have the access pass you might ask I certainly ask that question.
Games are not censored and altered willy nilly and games don't have constant almost daily rule changes that the players find really hard to follow.
Players of a game know the game, and know the rules, and know the game pieces.
IMvu is ever changing, the boundaries change, the Ideas change.
Indeed the Allowed changes to the dissalowed at a moments notice Promises to the players are broken for business purposes.

I see sadly that IMVU are indeed introducing a new part to the chat experience a games service where you pay in credits to play the pathetic nonsense that they are putting out I say pathetic nonsense as I looked at one where you had to shoot at trees and was charged a piffling 3 creds to play but I dont think it would hold the attention of a 2 year for longer than 10 seconds so happily I will steer clear Of the Pathetic Games section.

The most important part of imvu is the members. The people that we meet and chat to and form friendships with. These friendships and understandings are not games. These friendships are built on honesty and trust and respect for each other. And those Qualities the Honesty, Trust and the respect are not toys.
They do not belong to a Game they are precious components of what and who we are online, and ultimately lead to some of the best freindships ,any of us will ever make in our Lives. I have heard many times online that for many its much easier to make friends online than in real life these people don't come here to play, everyone is in a chat client like Imvu for a specific reason whether it be to pass the time in lonely hours to socialise to have fun and engage in chit chat indeed even to seek out and find a soul mate they come together in clients such as Imvu And There and Second life and Moove and what ever other medium they endorse these clients are not and never will be games because they ultimately affect real human emotions. And as we all know Those should never be played with.....Ever.

A game ? I definately think NOT.
