It’s no surprise to anyone who has perused my blog that I love video games. I spend an obscene amount of time playing video games, more than is probably considered “normal” but I make no apologies for my habit because it’s my extracurricular entertainment of choice. So when I saw Gidge’s post on Its Only Fashion asking the question “Who Are You in Other Worlds?” I figured I’d share some of my army of video game characters. I’m going to limit this post to games I’m currently playing just to keep the length down.
My main MMO is World of Warcraft. WoW was my first MMO way, way back in 2006, and is the game that really got me back into PC gaming after being a console junkie for many years. I play with friends and family and WoW has really been an amazing way to keep in touch with people I’ve long since moved away from. My main at the moment is my human warlock but, as you can see, I have a ton of characters. These aren’t even all of them, just my current level 90s.
I’ve been subbed to Rift since it came out but sadly don’t play it nearly as often as I’d like. But whenever I do, I love it to pieces. I find it to be a better overall game than WoW as they do so many things right. Unfortunately not a lot of people I know play the game making it a smidge lonely at times. Still, I sing it’s praises whenever I can. And, best of all, it’s F2P now. My main here is a mathosian rogue.
Ah, SWTOR. I played the ever loving crap out of this game. I’ll admit up front that I’m not a rabid Star Wars fan, but, I am a HUGE fan of anything and everything Bioware so I had to give it a spin. I leveled up character after character just to play through the various class storylines. Honestly I’d like the game better if it was a single player or coop game rather than an MMO but the stories are good enough to slog through the MMO part.
Defiance is a newer game that I’m feeling out. The game has a different enough play style, look and story to keep it interesting and it’s fun playing a game that isn’t your typical fantasy based setting. I liked the show too.
Finally, I’m playing Mass Effect 3 again. I can never really stay away for very long, Mass Effect is my favorite game of all time… and awesome mods like this amazing hair and head morph by Elemods make everything feel fresh and new again.
So there are the various incarnations of Fricka floating around at the moment. Go ahead, say it, I have too much time on my hands. :P
