Life provides turning points of many kinds, but the most powerful of all may be character-revealing moments.

I don't think you should be worried with your kid playing with strangers. If anything, it will help him realise who he is and who he isn't when playing with people that he likes (or doesn't like.) I, myself, am a gamer and before I played video games online, I was an introvert as well. I didn't really like talking to other people and rather preferred being alone. In a way, I am still that same way, but I have changed drastically. I went from never socialising with people to not being afraid to say what I want. I can now speak in front of people and not have my heart pounding in my chest. Having these experiences, although not in person, I think is crucial to a person that is an introvert as having these kinds of connections will "break the shell" as it did in my case.
