ESA Poll Challenges Stereotypical Gamer Profile
January 12, 2005 at 11:45 pm #16965AnonymousInactive
I occasionally spend my lunch times outside Game with my friends munching on some food. I see many people go in and out of Game. Most of these punters are the same as those ‘hip cats’ who go into HMV next door to buy movies and music. These people are around 25, wearing tracksuits and have a bird around their arm. Hardly the stereotype.
How long will it be before society lets go of the obese ten year old playing Tomb Raider just to fulfil his dreams all day and night?

Exactly Ronny, why people still hold onto the “obese, pasty, and antisocial” stereotype is beyond.
I play games, I also go out with friends, I go to the gym at least 3 times a week, and I’m not pasty and/or obese. And I don’t think gamers like me are in the minority. :rolleyes:
Just a sidenote, Xero and Kaiser_Soze do fit into the above stereotype, in that they are both pasty, and both obese. :D

I always thought that Xero was more “burly” than obese but i see your point.

Classic picture lads! Love the crewcut and the missing leg… Not sure about what you’ve done to me nose and eyes though..! :eek:
Although, notice how the two fatboys didn’t need any photoshop “enhancements”, they are bad enough as it is…. ;)

What do you mean enhancements!

I told you that marshmellow was a Landmine Nooptical!

Notice I had “Enhancements” in quotations Kaiser, signifying that I was being sarcastic….
That photo was taken when Kaiser was just starting his “supersize me” phase. This is an accurate reconstruction of how he looks now…. ;)
Ok, this thread has been totally hijacked now…..lets just stop with this bickering and discuss the topic!!!
