    I don't go around screaming "I PLAY WOW!" on the drop of a dime without provocation like some prawn who needs everyone to know everything about him. But if the conversation is already in that ballpark then yea, I bring it up.

    Does it matter if they do? It's no different than playing GTA or Fortnite or Minecraft or Mario. Games are games.

    ... why does this thread even exists? We are not in 2004 anymore where playing on a computer was basically seen as a sign of mental trauma.

    One of the newer members of staff, a younger guy, set up a monthly PnP night (with mostly student attendees), but I honestly don't know anyone at work who admits to playing videogames.

    I started the thread because I was curious. I run a Horde sticker on my Car and its amazing how many people I have pull up and talk shit if they are alliance, or yell "For The Horde". It really makes me laugh. Ive had some of my car friends ask what the sticker is and I tell them, then i get the weird looks, but I could care less. If you are ashamed you shouldn't be playing it.


    For The Horde.

    I'm 38 and yes people know I play WoW. I'm too old to give a shit what people think.

    Yes, and they often ask how my adventures in Azeroth are going.

    They also might put me on suicide watch if this game ever ends.

    being only 22 no one really minds if I do, but then again WoW isn't really much known here in my country

    everyone else prefers to play Ragnarok, Black Desert, or Ran
    The Alliance gets the Horde's most popular race. The Horde should get the Horde's most popular race in return. Alteraci Humans for the Horde!

    Some, not all.

    I post about it on my friends FB. The ones that openly talk about it, that is.

    I don't hide it at all. I just don't talk about it with friends unless they play also.
    I love the looks you get when you tell people you can't do something..dinner or whatever because you have a raid starting in 2 hours.
    Good times

    *Edit*
    I also run Horde stickers on my Vehicles. Represent
    Not really...I had a co-worker who knew I played WoW and she played and ugh....regret her knowing. Every day she would come to me and talk about every little mundane thing she did the night before....ugh.

    My gamers friends know , others no. You can't rly explain WoW to someone that never played any video game .

    I have no friends, but my Girlfriend obviously knows, we live together. My family knows too. One of my coworkers which is kinda like a friend knows. The rest of them does not because I don't care about them.

    They mostly do...but I don't schedule my RL around the game anymore for years. The only one who finds it very odd is my GF

    Yeah, and I play with some of those friends as well.

    Hiding that you're playing a certain game would be ridiculous and I would not understand why someone would do that.

    Most people know, my few select friends all game. My fiance’s dad plays aswell joined the same guild as him for a few raids and we also do m+ Sometimes .

    The Only ones that dont know is people at work. Most of Them knows Im ”Good” at computers as i worked at a computer store before and build/fix computers But none of Them know i game, They dont even know What gaming is.

    Why? I'm in my late 30's, well educated, work in management and no one ever made fun of me when I told them I play games.
    What kind of an odd backwater do you come from?
