Because we needed a "you know your a gamer when..." thre3ad

Post  xarhelm on Sun Nov 08, 2009 12:33 am

Alright every forum has one of these and frankly I am worried this one did not yet. Problem Solved!


You know your a gamer when... you tell a story and realize mid way through that it happened in agame and not actually to you.


I have better ones but some are a little (alot) perverse so i will save those for now. Twisted Evil

You know you're a gamer when you stop in a grocery store and look up to your right because you can't find your way around.


My friend actually did this in the middle of a huge store, only seconds later to close her eyes in embarrasment and exclaim; "I was looking for the overhead map!"

And great initiative with this thread! Very Happy

You know you're a gamer when you stay up late exchanging war stories with a friend you haven't seen in a while and they are all GAME Battle stories... and you realize afterwards that you don't even know if/where your friend is currently working/living because you didn't catch up on anything "ooc".


Yeah... Me and Zac (little Zac) up till 3 or 4 in the morning talking battles... *sigh*.

You know you're a gamer when you start assigning stats to REAL people in your life, and when you attribute accidents to 'rolling a 1'.

You know your a gamer when you have better recollection of NPCs from games 10 years ago, then you do the 'real' people you went to high school with.

You base your schedule completely around game night and are at a loss as to what to do with yourself if it is cancelled.

Instead of teaching your kids the names of all the presidents, you teach them the names and stats of every character you've ever played.

When someone asks if you are alright after stubbing your toe, you reply, "I've taken no damage."

i believe that was something that ann did once.

Pulled over for speeding, you attempt to charm person, but realize that you don't have it currently memorized.

Talking to people outside a game, you call them by their character's name because you can't remember their real name.

Working late, you find yourself hoping that the night will pass 'uneventfully.'

The phrase "I think I just failed a (spot/alertness/observation/dex etc.) check." is part of your everyday language.

Your inbox is full of RP emails from a game played weeks ago that keeps on going because you just gotta finish that conversation...

Not that ANYONE here would have that experience...

And of course...

You create an online forum for all your gamer friends so you can all game when you are away from the table.
