I actually do live in a basment. It is NOT my mom's basement, however. I admit that I rather enjoy the cave'like dwelling as I prefer dark spaces and solitude.

    I have a basement in the house I own and that's where I game...  Does that count?

    not sure what does GW2 have to do with living in a basement but yes, yes i do, at my families basement for now(i pay for it tho, to help with the mortgage). Wont leave this place until i graduate from college. Health issues took 5 of the last seven years of my life  so im starting college a bit late, but its never too late to make progress.

    Uhhhh........It's not a basement, It's called a Man Cave.

    Jeez people.

     

    Also, because of the stigma and stereotype of "mom and dad's basement", you really should clarify that you mean one's own basement. Peopel will think others will assume if they answer yes, it will look like that's what you are asking.

    Strange topic for GW2 - maybe we should have it general gaming so the WoW set and EVE'rs can butt in.

    Do you keep a well stocked 36 ability keybind system to handle that situation? including but not limited to bubble hearth and macros? LOL

    My basement is being used for "other" things. I like to....hold on a sec...

     

    "Hey, quiet down there! It put's the lotion on or it get's the hose again!!"

     

    Now...where were we?

     

     

    (I don't have a basement, so no, i'm not a literal basement dweller...)

    Hence my "Man Cave" reference. Or in your case a "Danger Room"

    Gaming is just more fun if you're in the basement.  I happen to live in a basement at a friend's house. So i'm cooler than you.
  • KellorKellor Wheatley Heights, NYPosts: 80Member
    I don't live in the basement, I own the whole house, but the basement is my gaming space. Actually, I have a little corner of the basement for my computer, while my son took over the rest of the basement for his toys.

    If I had a basement id be a dweller, I suppose ill just settle for being an attic dweller XD

    Apartment top floor but I dream of under ground civilizations often as a serious alternative to the overpopulation problem.  Wish science would invest more there.

    I do live in my dad's basement, but I'm a) female, and b) his live-in caretaker. I also shower daily, attend a post-secondary educational institution, eat properly, exercise with passing regularity, and have a healthy, normal social life which includes sex, and libations that aren't Mountain Dew.

    The title of this topic made me think of the movie C.H.U.D.

    “There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.”
    -- Herman Melville
