Ronald Diemicke writes "World of Warcraft players leveled 1 to cap hang out in front of Iron Forge and dance. Fallout 3 players seek out new and elaborate ways of destroying their avatar. Brawlers in Smash Brothers have an itchy pause finger ready to catch any humiliatingly hilarious screen grabs. The thugs running rampant in Grand Theft Auto are putting Evil Knievel to shame by using a full assortment of vehicles to pull off some incredible stunt work. Personally, I like to collect and move things. My favorite is making piles of bodies in any game that doesn't make them vanish and lets me move them around. Metal Gear is very good for it but I've found that Tenchu was the best for this hobby. Ever catch yourself doing something in game that isn't exactly part of the game or just really dumb?"

In Fallout 3 I... - Pile prewar cash in one corner - Pile potent potables in another corner - Pile fully repaired assault rifles by my bed - Collect memorabilia on my work bench; Lincoln's stuff is there at the moment - Arrange educational books on my shelves to form a personal library - Put various misc items, like metro tickets and key cards, in my work desk - Line undamaged garden gnomes by the door I've become disenchanted with the game since I found there were very few workbench schematics, most of which not very useful, and that the game doesn't like to stack items on top of each other very high.
