Maybe this is a weird question, but I've often wondered if people have the same experiences that I do with this. When people find out I play MMORPGs (I play WoW), they are usually extremely surprised. I think the fact that I don't fit into their (arguably narrow minded) view of what a gamer looks like throws them off. Sometimes, if the other person plays too, they'll flat out not believe me and ask for some kind of proof. I think a lot of this also has to do with being female, but that's another thread! Conversely, people are not at all surprised when they find out my husband plays What about you guys? Are people surprised to hear that you play? What are their reactions?
