"If I had super powers in real life... which is not to say that I don't". classic.
I have also seen the game running on arcade machines that didn't have the lights (maybe arcades cutting costs?), which does make the nigh on impossible.
One of the wonderful problems with communicating in type, that you can't hear the tone in what's being said.
I really don't give a flying toss about political correctness, to be honest.
Facebook seems to do ok, & almost all it's users use their real names.
Hell, I'm posting here under my real name... with a photo of myself to boot, yet, I don't seem to be fearing for my safety.
If everyone's using their real names (which would be hard to enforce), harassment doesn't really become as much of an issue, because you have the real name of the person doing it.
The OP here said "I've also heard stories of people meeting someone on an online game and being raped by them in real life"... I can actually see a benefit to knowing the real identity of someone who does something like this... I'm sure the police can too.
I think the biggest problem with this is that it would simply be too hard to enforce... too easy for someone to make up an alias.
Interesting to see that, when comparing Wii hardware sales to Software sales, that there are 7.74 games sold for every console out there.
