    Second Life vs IMVU opinions
    Some users think Second Life is a great alternative to IMVU, some don't.

    IMVU and Second Life are both digital social worlds. Period. RAM use has nothing to do with the games are, just how much better one is designed or what contents one has that the other doesn't.

    Poor graphics, clumsy controls and the whole thing looks like elder scrolls construction set. Not my thing.
