Gamers and their Avatars
The New York Times has a great avatar slide show that gives you a look into the avatars that a variety of people have chosen from different games. I really enjoyed looking at this. For me, in most of the games I have played, my avatar is not really a reflection of myself, or what I want to look like, but instead, a character that fits a back story I have in my head.
Check out the slide show. You might be surprised to see what some people have chosen. I think it says a fair bit about their personality.
