Geek? - How does it feel?
To be a geek or not to be a geek is not something I will go into details with! First of all, yes I see myself as a geek, since I play MMOs, just like the rest of the world do! But on the other hand I don't get why guys are allowed to play these games and women ain't ? Without being looked down at? In my opinion we should all be able to play games and do whatever we want without anyone looking at you saying: Omg freak?!
Personally I keep my IRL friends seperated from my "In game" world, since they will never understand what they are missing out, and they would probably look at me and go: "What the fuck...? You play games like the geeks? What are you?" And tbh I don't want them to change their view of me just because I play games which I enjoy, so therefore I have decided not to tell any of the girls about such things, on the other hand I have so much more in common with all the guys I know IRL, we can talk about all the weird stuff which you normally wouldn't! And that is actually fun and something I enjoy very very much :) And it is always so much fun to find new people IRL you never thought were hardcore gamers, and figure out they have been playing MMOs since start ;)
To sum up, this is just how I look at myself, and ofc I am a geek inside, but on the outside I am someone completely different!
So my question is: Do your friends know you are playing games? - Please attach whether you are a guy or a girl ! ;) Leave comments below!
