    Um... This is a tough one for me. I'm an ex-hardcore WoW player, with absolutely no intention of ever going back to it, so to go out with someone that played WoW would probably cause major friction because at this stage pretty much anything to do with that game makes me feel really uncomfortable.

    Apart from that - it's neither a turn-on or a turn-off, but if someone placed gaming above the relationship then it would really piss me off. That said though, the kind of person who's into games probably shares similar nerdy interests with me, and multiplayer Wii games are a lot of fun!

    Lol, OK, well your wish is my command. I don't, the reason my username is onthejubileeline is that when I made this account I had ridden the Jubilee Line that day. I actually live in Surrey (i.e. Greater London. Greater my arse)

    Well done for avoiding the creepy comment! Though I do like the emoticon :- :hubba: I overuse it a bit

    Surrey, pftt, that's not real London! Must be awful out there, I feel for you :lovehug:

    LOL.

    I love reading stuff like that. It happens all the time. It just proves my theory that WoW is a a piece of **** that nobody should play is right.

    To be fair there are several types of gamers.

    - 'Normal' gamers who play stuff like GTA or COD or sports games on their 360 or PS3.
    - MMOWhores who spam WoW all day.
    - League gamers who play CSS, COH, COD etc, in competitive leagues.
    - Milnerds who play turn based strategy/hex strategy.

    I suspect the last three are distinctively less attractive than the first.

    Thanks, it's OK out here in suburbia though; if a little bit dull. Whereabouts in London do you live? And I meant to ask, are you a gamer and do you have a bit of a hero complex?

    So you're saying anyone with a PS3 / XBox 360 has no life?

    I'm a North London boy - Islington.

    As to whether I'm a gamer...I think it's fair to say I'm a retired gamer (as of about a year). And I do have something of a hero complex *sigh* although I don't put that down to the games, I put it down to books. Overheats the brain it does!

    Do you have a damsel in distress complex? Or equally possible alternative - a militant feminist independent streak?

    I just dont see the attraction in pleasure you can get out of a games console compared to sex, walk or going for a run?

    In my experience, it's never been an issue with girls ..

    I mean, I play games a fair bit, but it'd be no different to a guy who reads a lot, or watches TV alot ... they're just passtimes when you're on your own.

    If a guy said "I can't see you tonight, i wanna play games" that'd be lame .. but equally if he said "I can't see you tonight, im gonna read another chapter of this book" it'd be the same.

    Both can be put on hold for real life

    Games, like anything, are an escape from reality .. NOT a substitution.

    I don't put that down to the games, I put it down to books. Overheats the brain it does!
    What sort of books do you read that give you a hero complex? (Purely out of interest to see whether you are the same as me )

    You still have time to get to the gym for a serious workout? You just look like you're in serious need of a meal mate. Re: gaming. Get a life. That's all.

    how the **** can I pwn noobs when I'm walking?!?!

    I mean ok, going for a walk with someone, fine. But If I'm on my own I don't see why any action you do for pleasurable should be quantifiably better or worse than another... opinion is opinion.

    A bit of both, depending on my mood. I've never been much of a feminist, but I can be stubbornly independent; but I do like to play the damsel in distress every now and again. I blame books too. And films. I blame everyone, really; except me. Thanks for the rep btw

    A perhaps slightly strange combination of books on medieval history, various works of Austen and a bit of light fantasy of the Neil Gaiman type.

    Oh ok nevermind lol.

    Well next to my bed I have The Forgotten Soldier, Fighter: The True Story of the Battle of Britain and How to Stage A Military Coup, so I think that sums it up pretty well :yep:

    And I have White Rajah and Battle Tactics of the American Civil War on my PC desk.

    Interesting, actually. I wonder how people develop hero complexes.

    Hah, sounds about right. Damsel in distress always looked like a fun role to play, curse my gender!

    What would you say is your number one literary influence on your independent *** damsel in distress psychology?

    Oh no, thank you

    You know my mate once told me about this news he heard:

    some korean lad (where RPG is a craze apparently) died of dehydration whilst playing world of warcraft at a 24/7 internet cafe.

    apparently he played for 3 days straight without drinking anything!
