A lot of gamers might boast to you that their exploits and campaigns in a title like Halo makes them more dangerous in real life.
There are some good arguments on either side as to the truth behind this notion. Geek.com will tell you that video games will make your surgeon a little more accurate – to say that precision with a Plasma Sword amounts to precision with a scalpel. On the other side of the fence that intersects this debate are the number of gamers I have placed on a firing line with a real live shottie in their controller-trained hands. I can safely tell you that a drawer filled with Killtacular medals does not amount to ability to kill an orange frisbee as it tries to escape your scatter of shot.
What about the flip side, though? How does real life effect your gaming? Do Hiring-Managers at work make good Overlords? Does a white-knuckled Commuter who holds a line in the fast lane during rush-hour make a good Warthog Pilot? Any airline pilots out there to pull wonders in a Banshee?
Sound off, fellow gamer. Share with us instances in which a fellow clanner or a member of your friends list reflected a little of their personality online. As an example, I have shared in the post above a story about one of my clanners who benefitted us all from the teachings of a career in the military.
I ask you:
When we jack into the box, how much of ourselves to do we bring with us?
