    Anybody who's anybody's got one. They are the very essence of our online persona, at least on the outside. But how often do we talk about our avatars? Studies have shown that when people talk about their avatars, they lead happier lives overall. Depression drops 50% in young adults*, with similar decreases in divorce, and marriage.

    Talking about one's avatar may not be for everyone. In some rare cases, swelling of the ankles may occur. If you are prone to wrist cramps, consult the FAQ. It will tell you whether or not talking about your avatar is right for you.

    Actually the avatar size restrictions are increasing tomorrow so we'll be able to understand what everyone's avatar is.



    Nah, that's not true. But one can dream... one can dream.

    Just a guy with a pipe that tickles me everytime I see it. It's basically portraying that I'm, as Dan would say, a posh bastard!

    Mine is obvious. It's Batman. I decided to be like Daniel, because he's a great role model for new GR members. However, why is my Batman avatar so unique? I made the Batman's picture with only the tools provided by Rockstar Games' Social Club. Here, you can visit GR's Crew

    Spike Spiegel favorite anime character, as well as my introduction to japanimation in general. I was so psyched about him that I decided to dress up like him for my first american halloween, complete with gun

    Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another... if I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice! Ha ha ha!

    Calm down now, Alan Moore.

    My current one is a random picture of a dude pretending to be steampunk. I did that for the change your avatar thing a few weeks back. Before that, it was my internet namesake, Links Ocarina, of course.

    It's Megabyte from Reboot. I only changed it from Morpheus because everyone was changing their avatars and I didn't want to feel left out.

    You've played 4, 5, and 0 right? Because I know you've played 6 and AC of course.

    And I love the Flash, and this Jay Garrick picture is one of the coolest ones they've got. Plus, since I had Black Adam as my other one, I figured I'd do something from DC's other red lightning hero.

    Though I'm sure people are more curious about my signature than my avatar. I've mostly been doing stuff from comics for both of them for a while now.
