Avatars vs. Real Life Photos (17 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       10 May 2011       25603       15

People who play video games like to choose a particular virtual character to express themselves in game worlds. The Alter Ego project by photographer Robbie Cooper is created to reveal the “real-life” photos of virtual people. He travelled to France, Germany, and China to meet gamers and take a picture of them so that you could compare their real photos and avatars.

Men make characters that are tough looking and women like hourglass -bodytype. I'm not surprised...

I agree, this kid's body is destroyed but in the game world he's able to be everything he can't in the real world. Its a sort of power and freedom for him. Good for the little guy.

@random avatar
If given the option to play as a man or a woman in a third person game, I'll typically choose woman. Not because I have some sort of gender identity issue, but simply because I'd rather look at a chick running around than a well-muscled guy while I'm playing.
Look at it this way, would you rather set pictures of random dudes that look kind of like you, or you could identify with as your wallpapers, or nice looking ladies? That's how I see it at least.
