What is it with Force-users that always makes them go bonkers and power-mad? Wouldn't they be a lot more happy mowing the lawn with a lightsaber and going tailgating with some friends instead?
Reader Matthew succumbs to a moment of temptation in Star Wars: The Old Republic
: "Here is my Jedi Shadow tank, Kaidenn, after downing Darth Ikoral, last boss of a level 45 flashpoint. I have done this tons of times before, but today I got a pic of my character while sitting in his chair. If he could be thinking of anything, it would be 'unlimited power!'"
What about all of the folks who have a hankering for defying death itself and bringing back people from the great beyond? Reader Chris apparently has no problems doing this, despite all of the ethical briefings that he had to endure before being allowed to play a Necromancer.
"This is a shot of my Necromancer in Guild Wars 2
on top the vista puzzle near Snaketail Inlet in Ruins of Orr," Chris writes. "It's a beautiful yet desolate place. He is level 80 with 45% map completion, so still a long way to go and many sights yet to see!"
Sometimes you reach a spot that takes your breath away -- but hopefully not your ability to hit your Print Screen button. Apparently, that's what happened to Drgoonworriorlxl1 (his, her, or its legal birth name) in EverQuest II
: "This is my character Blahl watching the sunset over Qeynos Castle in the distance."
Isn't it funny how we love to watch the sunset in game while the real world one is desperate for our audience? Maybe if someone would fiddle with the temperature controls on the outdoors, we would all be a lot more open to spending time out there. Just saying.
