My mind wanders. So, I got to thinking about this joke-list I seen, while reading the posts in Soccy's T-shirt-topic. I ended up wondering about how different games might be viewed as the perfect date, or not, based on whatever stereotypes we could imagine about them. Anyway, taking much from the joke-list I mentioned, here's what I came up with:

Stereotype #1 "SW: Galactic Battlegrounds" : Glasses, sensible shirt, nerd.

Stereotype #2 "Age of Empires 3": Designer Clothes, short hair w gel, conceited.

Stereotype #3 "Age of Mythology": Long hair, almost looks good but something is slightly off.

Stereotype #4 "Age of Wonders 2": Girl

Stereotype #5 "Age of Kings": Sexy, stupid T-shirt, drunk.

I'd like to see what others can come up with. So please, use your imagination to describe a specific game or genre using similar stereotypes. Try to limit the descriptions to three or four specifications. Also, you can just edit the list in the post to your liking.

"What Ana said. Use sugar and the whip." - aka the Pilot

SWGB is the sober version of the Age of Kings date. With glasses of course, but still... sexy.

Does it have to be HG-specific games, or can it be any game?

Hey Aro,
Any game or even different generes will do. I agree about SWGB, I should have indicated better the similarities between the two. I think, "glasses, sensible shirt, nerd" is sexy though.

Hi Quaazi,
FPS Doug was funny, but I wanted to imagine the game as the date instead of the gamer...although that would be funny too.

Anyway, I'm sure it's obvious to you that for fun I wasn't as kind to some games as I was to others. Still, your Age of Wonders 2 might be: Stereotype #1 "Age of Wonders 2": Girl, sexy, drunk.

Cobra's AoK might be:
Stereotype #1 "Age of Kings": Sexy, stupid T-shirt, cynic.


So maybe I should've raised the specs to four?

Sorry Quaazi, it was hard to tell if you you were saying you liked AoW2 or if you were just saying you liked girls. Or both? Pervert!

Oh now I get it! I said AoW because I prefer my date to be a girl. You know, the entire reproducing intended by nature, 's all.

The shy nerdy girl. Who is actually very hot; even more so once you get to know her.

Based on games I've played recently and from a masculine point of view:

Age of Empires III: Has bigger breasts than her older sister, she's also hotter and dresses nicely but she's just enough superficial that you wonder if you should stick to the wiser, older & more experienced big sister.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past: At first sight kind of plain-looking, but as you get to know her she's amazing. You think you know her and all of a sudden there's something that you didn't expect. Her mood is usually good but occasionally you have to be on your toes.
Blonde, small breasts, simple clothes

Hey Guys,
Those descriptions are excellent, and much more funny and interesting than I expected. I kind of lost my place here when the thread dropped, but your stereotypes are much more interesting than mine.

Hey Alex,
I appreciate any courtesies anyone extends to me, however being an owner operator, I'm interested in what everyone else thinks about female breasts too.

It is an interesting subject, but one that would probably require it's own topic thread to explore.
Also, even though I'm a fairly modest and private person, I sometimes think twice about what I write here too. So, I'm not about to apologize for any cultural pressure anyone is experiencing either.

Ocarina of Time: Better looking than her hot younger sisters and, although she's unique, she still has the same traits that attracted you to each and every one of her sisters. She also claims she has a fairy following her around, so... she's not entirely there mentally.

For a second I was wondering why everyone keeps turning the games into female dates, until I realized Ana's the only female participating.

You always know where to draw the acceptability line, so I doubt there's much cultural pressure going on. ^^

Thanks Aro, I think you understood my point -- in that there was really no need for Alex to note his courtesy and restraint, but there was no reason not to note it either.

About giving the game dates gender, I think it's unavoidable.
(s)he's not entirely there mentally.
Yes, but he made me imagine what I'd be like if older too.

clearly this is an impossible question to answer with anything other then 'no' and Quaazi would be silly to even attempt.
