More than some, but less than others.

My dad is really into old video games and old comics, and my mom is involved enough that she doesn't seem totally oblivious to it. At least she knows who Mario is.

My brother is the main reason I'm so involved in anime and video games. I still remember early morning anime when I was really young, and trying to stay up late enough to watch the random episodes of DBZ playing late at night. My brother's the one who taught me the kamehameha.


aww the thing with your brother... brings back memories.

I found out and got access to a lot of anime from my oldest brother. Naruto, Bleach, Slam Dunk, School Rumble, Air, Peach Girl, Suzuka, Aishiteruze Baby, etc... I don't think he's into anime these days though. I'm not really sure what his interests are nowadays.

My other older brother watched them too. And he still likes a lot of geeky stuff he has a lot of retro games/consoles and arcade stuff. Oh we used to play MMOs together and stuff kind of like Maple Story, Gunbound, Ragnarok Online... haha I miss those days. :(

Parents nope... I did play Mortal Kombat with my dad once... wow he owned me... he spammed 1 button... -_-

Okay, I'd need a little help with the definition of dork, geek and greenhorn since I'm not American and where I grew up they weren't quick to put us into stereotypes.

On my grandfather's side it does, though he is more of a computer geek. In fact, he is way up there, a genius, and even invented computer software back in the day. Once even got asked to join Na- oh shouldn't talk about that.

Dork is a derogatory term to describe someone who is quirky, or weird from the general population's perspective. A geek is another derogatory term used to describe someone who has a somewhat obsessive knowledge in only one area, usually about video games or computers, those such things. The usage probably depends on where in the United States you live, since I no idea what greenhorn means.

my parents don't play any video games.

but there was a phase when we had this mario game, and my mum was addicted to it she wouldn't let me play it because she wanted to play it. it was funny. that phase ended though.


other than that one time, am the only oddball in my family.


(but they may have done dorky things back in their youth... but personally have no idea what is dorky in the 60's????) Like the definition of dorky/geeky in this era is watching anime/sci-fi stuffs/playing games. but what exactly was dorky in the 60's...???? Doing crosswords???

nope, and I'm nothing like my parents or brother
