Avatars vs. Reality (16 Photos)

For those who haven't yet seen this, photojournalist Robbie Cooper has created a book based on gamers' avatars juxtaposed against their creators. The project is called 'Alter Egos' (available here). Here is a very glimpse at the amazing book...

    Lots of City of Heroes players.

    Peter? Peter Burke? Did you know that for every 20 pounds a man loses his penis grows one inch? My mom didn’t even tell me that.

    #14 can have any avatar he wants.
    Hell, I'd send that kid a game time card so he can keep playing.

    I have to agree with J-Wes, good to see people saying good things about the kid.

    so you are a person who supports this type of alter-egos too make you feel good and distract you from the real world.
