I would never call my study of the martial arts an obsession but it is a big part of me. It's something I actually do but which the highest levels of contain endless legends of skill and power, some more blatantly fantastical than others. When it comes to games, I'm one of those "game as expression" players. When I play video games, I like to have my choices in cosmetics, skill sets, theme, class, etc. say something about who I am. So naturally the two of these have some overlap. When I play Pokemon my team mostly consists of fighting types. My main toon in WoW is a Monk, (Pandaren, represent!), in games that allow it, I spec for melee combat over ranged. Even in games such as Borderlands or Mass Effect, I usually have a character concept of a martial artist for the setting kicking around in the back of my mind. Obviously it also has the effect on which games I play as a whole. Games like Street Fighter or Sleeping Dogs. What about you guys? Do you find your lifestyle or hobby has any say in something like video games or other forms of self-expression?
