Well the obvious stereotype is that all of us are fat, lazy, and stupid.
As for emotions, I know my way of dealing with a situation, is to go play a game. Clears my mind, and I can calm down.

Well, I wouldn't agree with the fat, lazy and stupid. why? Because when it comes to some of the hackers and code makers, they are very smart people and no where near stupid. Yes there's your average dumbass in every group, but most of us are very smart. Fat and lazy? From the part of the gaming world I come from, we play usually only at night and do it with are clan family's and just have fun and a good time with friends.
