The pictures above are from a South Park episode about World of Warcraft. On the left is the guy in real life (at least in South Park), on the right is his avatar.
The BBC compiled similar photos of 10 real life gamers next to their avatars.
There’s a remarkable similarity between South Park’s and the first guy in the BBC series.

Wow — BBC #1 does indeed bear more than a passing resemblance. Some of the others weren’t as “geeky” as I had imagined they would be, though.
You just never know…
