But there are plenty of counterexamples. They just tend not to be under 30 yrs old INTx types. Often in MMORPGs, I would find that older gamers would tend to congregate together, primarily due to enjoying the overall level of emotional maturity to be had. These groups tended to include husband/wife pairs who enjoyed gaming together.
The main problem with people who are passionate about gaming is that just as they become very good at gaming (no matter in how emotionally mature a manner), they necessarily omit from their lives other levels of social experience that most people regard as common. In order to gain real emotional maturity, people need a broad experience of life, not expertise in a narrow area of life.An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.
A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

I have a pretty old, large scar in the palm of one of my hands that totally bisects one of my palm lines. I don't believe in palm reading (or human methods of telling the future in general) but this morning I was curious about the symbolism of which line it was.
I had to share my mirth, it's my "lifeline".

The symbolism does ring true for me though. That scar often reminds me of Christ's sacrifice, and now of my own death were it not for his.
*disclaimer for you history buffs: Yes, crucifixion wounds were in the wrist, not the palm.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

Is it possible that some of my lifelong friends know so little about me that the way they talk about certain topics implies that they think we're in agreement despite the fact that my views are quite different?

I do, however, indulge in fantasy and science fiction.
If I lack emotional maturity, it's for other reasons.Forget the dead you've left; they will not follow you.
