I'm not really hugely vocal about the games I play. I don't really talk about them to my friends outside of work or the game itself. I don't have any tattoos or T-shirts that I wear around in public. The only real concession to my Warcraft
obsession is my car, really. I love my car, and I love putting things in my car, whether it's the unobtrusive Harry Potter sticker on the back, the dinosaur on my dash as a subtle nod to Firefly
, or the small Horde decal in the back window. I also have a Warcraft
license plate frame that looks much nicer than the dealer frame that came with the car.
Most people don't really give the items in my car a second glance, but I always know when there's a Warcraft
player behind me at the Starbucks drive-through line -- I'll get a glimpse of an excited driver behind me throwing the horns or expressing their delight with my vehicle in one way or another. Now, I'd never go so far as to order a custom license plate, but I don't mind my unobtrusive decal and plate frame -- it's a subtle way of expressing my delight in the game that I play.
Do you openly display your Warcraft
pride? Do you wear T-shirts, have a tattoo, or cover your car with stickers? Do you have a custom license plate or a set of Warcraft
jewelry that you wear all the time? Or do you keep quiet about your gaming obsession, content to simply play at home and be happy about it?
While you're pondering that, take a look at this old gallery of custom Warcraft
plates. I'll be over here, quietly wondering if there's somewhere I can nab a Skyrim
decal for the other side of my car's back window.
