Cause they're different, they're seen as weird freaks to "normal" people, I'm an otaku myself and I can tell you one thing it's all about stereotyping, people by nature belittle and insult anyone who is socially different then they are. We're seen as anti-social when in reality we just don't want to talk to them as we know they wont have any interest in what we have to say. In other words people fear what they don't understand and tend to shun it.

You make yourself sound too cool. Otaku are not 'different' and neither do people fear you. They just feel you're boring because you have nothing to talk about beside your fairly limitied interests. You probably find people who can only talk about football quite boring too, right?

You say you don't talk to people because they don't care about videogames / manga / anime but isn't there anything else to talk about? You are being as narrow-minded as 'they' are, dude! Whoever they may refer to.

I don't know but it's pretty much just someone who's obsessed with something but people tend to get the wrong idea about what the definition of an otaku is

Because they tend to be anti-social, overly obsessed with one interest and as such do not have much to offer to other people in terms of mutual interest or possible conversation topics.
