Absolutely not on the game-playing but reading sci-fi (rarely the fantasy books) is something I've done for 50+ years - Lovecraft, Azimov, Gibson and all the rest.
You'll know you've created God in your own image when He hates all the people you do.

Techno-geek/nerd. When people start rolling their eyes and nodding I know it's time to stop talking...

I'm such a nerd that the title of this thread almost killed me grammatically.

I do read a ton of sci-fi, history, and anything that interests me. I also write sci-fi.

I'm a big geek when it comes to videogames, movies, comics, books, anime and what not, especially fantasy themed things. But I'm nothing compared to the (mostly sci-fi) geek-powers of my favourite person He's a geek among geeks.

I'd been trying to think of which of those terms would describe me best,then I saw gvalliant's post. Then I knew what I am a techno-geek/nerd. I love science fiction,listening to the ancient alien show's professors on that and the many other subjects they speak on.I'm good at learning technical stuff on my own. But of course I'm no Bill Gates. Oh and I'm a huge fan of Star Trek.
