I think I suffer from arrested development. I was just thirteen when the Easybeats were top of the charts with ‘Friday on my mind’. I was sooooo in love with this cute, cheeky faced lad…

Fast forward 47 years and what am I doing? I’m playing games and creating male characters that look suspiciously like….
People often ask me why I play so many male characters in games, and my stock answer used to be that I don’t get hit on playing males. Now I’m not so sure. I think I’m actually a little bit in love with my ‘boys’. And let’s face it, if you’re going to spend hours running around in 3rd person view, looking at your character’s butt…wouldn’t you prefer a bit of eye-candy too?
Different people play games for different reasons – wish-fulfillment, escape, compensating for reality, fun, relaxation – you name it, the list goes on and on. I play mostly for fun and relaxation, with a smidgeon of escape thrown in.
Why do you play? And what does your character mean to you?
This isn’t psychoanalysis, it’s just fun, so leave me some words of wisdom in comments. 🙂
