Then the problems arise when you don't know anybody well.

They always expect you to do it to strangers though. I'm always told to go up to random people and just spark conversation. HOW? Whenever I ask for a demonstration, they always walk up to someone they already know. You can't duplicate that for strangers. There needs to be an icebreaker, of which there is no unawkward combination of words in the english language to do that.

It's not that hard to talk to a random stranger. It doesn't always work but you can just start saying "hi I'm <insert name>". From there pick a topic, movies, games, music, news etc. if it's a party and it is your friend ask them how they know your friend.
It's not easy but it's not impossible either. You just have to go with it. Though not sure how well it goes with picking up girls never tried too scared. I can do it when I don't find the girl attractive or talking to a random guy.

I know how to have a conversation. I even know how to start a conversation. The main problem is that "Hi, my name is..." is a pretty weak ice breaker. It begs several questions, like why you're talking to them, or why they should care. With a more tangible ice breaker, that isn't there. It's especially hard for trying to spark conversations with girls because their first thought is "this creep is just trying to hit on me!" Point is that dri nking games and other competition/cooperation based activities are much better for providing a more social setting, yet all I see anyone doing is sitting and talking, and they play it out like it's oh so easy to spark a random conversation wih a complete stranger and have it delve into some deep discussion.

Well for me my intention is just making friends like there was a Melbourne youtube gathering and I went there with intentions to just network ended up making friends. It was the setting and the reason you went in the first place. If they ask just say you wanted to meet new people. Be earnest and they won't care.
Sometimes not knowing anyone forces you to just talk and try and meet people.
You may also be over thinking what people think. I just talk just cause I want to or I find them interesting or they said something interesting. Don't mind what others think.
If the girl thinks you are trying to hit on her let her think that. If you know your goal is just to make friends shrug it off and laugh. It is not a big deal if you don't make it one. If your intentions is to hook up then don't make it creepy clear but let her know you think she is attractive. If she's a total bitch then fuck her and move on she isn't worth your time.
TL;DR If you know your own intensions and be earnest then people won't give a fuck.

You're oversimplifying it. I'm not alking aout any one specific social situation, I'm talking about social situations in general, and what I'm saying is that you may be in tuned to that sort of thing, but not everyone is. It seems like the simplest thing in the world to you, but I garuntee there's someone out there, antisocial to hell, who can work miracles with something you absolutely cannot understand to save your life. I'm not saying I can't figure it out (in fact, I said the exact opposite), I'm saying this is what's going through our heads when you can't figure out what we're thinking.
If that's something that seems silly to you, well...then that's just lacking perspective.

I don't find it silly. I am also antisocial, I may not be as antisocial as you and I never said it was easy. I've had years of practice, forced practice. I had to make friends over and over again due to the lifestyle I lived/live. I much prefer being at home and not talking to anyone. That or talking to my close friends. Talking to a random person is not the easiest thing in the world, I'm more comfortable with it because I've had practice.
I'm not perfect at it and I do just not talk at all even at a parties. I like watching and listening more then talking. If you want practice then join an activity or try youtube. You can build your confidence and get over the shyness. It may not be 100% effective but it is a start.
If you want to change then make it happen, if you are fine being the way you are then it's all good. Being antisocial is not bad and nor is being an introvert.

I usually start with "hi", usually follow up with "how you doing?" and then ask about some related subject. If I'm abroad in another country or place, then I ask " are you from around here?" Then introduce myself abit, find out a little more about them. Good conversation topics are the things you seen or experienced lately, especially in the new place and ask their opinion about it also.
Ohh, and I usually start talking to random women like that. They usually are more social and more talkative so therefore much easier to get a conversation going.
To enlighten the mood you could offer to go get a drink or take a few drinks more for the extra courage. I know I did that at first.
But with guys it's a different story.
Alot realy depends in what kind of enviroment you are in and what situation you are in.
