Introducing Suzina, The MMO player

I’m a 27 year old married woman. I’m sure that gives you one impression of who I am. I’ll be finishing my degree in psychology next month, which probably only shifts your vision of me slighly. But here’s the rub: I’m an MMO player. I don’t have a lot of identity wrapped up in that. I don’t introduce myself to strangers as an MMO player, and rightfully so. Telling someone in the “real world” that you spend more than 40 hours per week in a virtual world isn’t going to win you any reputation points. I’ve sunk my time into Lotro, Star Wars Galaxies, Everquest 2, Final Fantasy XI, and Ultima Online. Three of those I helped beta-test. Oh… who am I kidding. I just played them early and called myself a “beta tester”.

Before graphical MMOs existed, I played text-based muds. Some summers in high-school I would play my favorite Mud so much that I had dreams in pure-text. When I was in elementary school, I used to play Dungeons & Dragons with my older brother and his friends. Maybe I’m just addicted to online grinding, but maybe there’s something all these games have in common. In any event, I find myself thinking about my virtual worlds enough to make we want to write about them too. That’s what brings me to Kill Ten Rats.

  1. Welcome to the strange and wonderful place that is KTR! (And the even stranger general MMOblogosphere :D)

    Look forward to reading more from you. I’d make a comment about welcoming more female bloggers (being one and all), but apparently that’s counter-feminist and counter-good player these days. I’m too old to keep up with trends. :P

  2. No, wait… there’s a lady around now. Does that mean I have to start shaving and showering now?

    WTF Ethic. You need to give 2-week notices for these things.

  3. Just noticed:

    “Lotro, Star Wars Galaxies, Everquest 2, Final Fantasy XI, and Ultima Online.”

    … one of those is not like the other. Hrm. Intriguing. :)

  4. Good try but no women play MMO’s. ~Strike 1. I applaud the effort but no Married women play MMO’s. ~strike 2. You won’t share that you play MMO’s hmmm methinks she may just after all play one or two….

    All joking aside other viewpoints (a long as they are coherent and makes sense are awesome, I have learned a thing or two to be sure) if your just yelling tho…the back of the bus is… well at the back !

    :) Looking forward to your posts
