I consider myself a Nerd... as I do sports and CAN talk to people and when I do... I interact well


I just have severe social anxiety which makes it hard for me to meet new people

well to me
geek = an interest in electronics
nerd = smart person with no friends

For me it's the other way as well.

Also oh dear god, toaster, you played Riven!! I loved Riven. Even now I have Myst on my computer.

I have so many memories of riding roller-trams and flipping toggles. So many memories of walking into some new area and seeing that freaky little girl run past the screen. So many memories of switching out those 8 CD ROMS!!!

I played Myst when I was even younger, and understood it even less. I actually just recently bought it off of GoG.com.

It's worth seeing the first place, if only to experience the world and read the back story. That landscape was the inspiration for that book I was writing in October Very Happy

Well for me it was probably... Halo, unfortunately. And my definition of nerd is just someone who likes... well you know, sci-fi, fantasy, that shit. I'm not a social outcast, i'm very outgoing, I just happen to like nerdy things Razz



And stop denying being a nerd people who say they're not.... we of all people KNOW you are *cough* pie *cough*...

That's still not right though.

I've always thought of them as different words for the same thing (if somebody says "geek" with a straight face nowadays, they'll consequently be called a fag) but nerd was just more commonly used now because it's not as annoying to hear.

That makes more sense, pie

The gameboy color and pokémon did the trick for me. Then n64 at kroger's pepe's playhouse. Then grandmother dearest bought me a ps1 including coolboarders and spyro. Followed by mathblasters on pc, lurking around on the original XBox, then of course valve entered my life. 423 hours of css later, and I don't regret a minute of it

Hmm...

I play chess, but that doesn't make you a nerd.
I love SW, but so does millions of other people.

If anything i became who i am from my 3rd grade friend.
Both of us competed for top of the class till 5th grade when i moved.
I think i had him by a point. ^.^

If I were to think back, I think it was Warcraft 3 that started this for me. I loved the game and was hooked. I eventually started to branch out to other things and then Halo 1 just blew my mind. It was like something I had dreamed up. I got hooked on Halo like how a hooker is with sex (lol rofl), minus the sex part with Halo.

I would also have to say that my extreme fasination with WWII fueled this as well. Oh and lets not forget my love for Russians Razz

Fucking faulty pieces of shit. Joining HWF also contributed a bit. And got me addicted to forums... And writing.
Same for me, halo got me addicted to video games but im not a nerd, I keep my internet stuff secret.

Playing a game does not make you a nerd Gauz. If I am to understand you correctly, anyone who have ever played a game is a nerd.
