I stumbled across this picture, and came to think about being a geek, can be meant in many different ways, just like this picture!
Thank you for telling us about yourself, and how you don't fit into any of the stereotypes on the pictures, I feel the same way as you, I absolutely don't see myself as any of the pics, and if I had to it would be a mix of everything and everyone I think.
But anyway back to your post, I absolutely agree with you when you say: "If you went back 10 years being labelled a geek had the same negative implications that being labelled a nerd had, now things are different. Being a geek isn't quite so unusual anymore"
I think it is a very interesting thing being a geek today, it is like a completely new style or fase in life. And in the 21th century it is okay to be a geek, cause it is something more and more of us are interested in! The gaming world has opened up to so many new players ever since MMOs were launched, and I think it will only continue from now on :)
Next year lots of new games are coming out, and it is always exciting to see how they turn out! Personally I am looking forward to trying Star Wars - The old republic out.
Which games are you looking forward to in the new year?
