Oh man, Sloth and Gluttony for sure. 10k+ hours over almost 6 years of Guild Wars and i still don't have GWAMM for my main. But Wrath is the big one. OH the stories I could tell of DoA PUGs and the rage that ensues...truly scary stuff.

Sloth!

I've been to lazy to level my alts for a long, long time. I don't have the patience to grind instances more than a few times so my one level 80 sits idle, quazi-geared in limbo.

What can I say? I just can't force myself to do things I don't like doing.

Greed: I had recently joined a guild that was atrocious and had a bad reputation. It was my last dungeon run and I had decided to leave straight after and a very rare piece of armour dropped which was bind on equip. I won the roll and knew if I gave it to the guild leader that he would keep it or sell it for himself rather than use it the good of the guild, so I am ashamed to say I kept it and sold it myself. First and only time I have done something like that as I am aware ninjas are scum!

Oh the shame...!

Oh, definitely Gluttony. I have other things I could be doing, but I'm spending my time (and money) playing WoW.

Pride and Envy are my major pitfalls. I feel like I always need to do obscure and difficult things to prove at a glance how OMG HARDCORE I am (working on Defender of Ascalon on my first GW character? Guilty). And I've gotten suckered into running countless things I didn't want to because all my friends were gearing up and I felt the old green eyed monster rearing its head.

Oh in my MMO past I have been guilty of almost all of those but lust I think.

Nowadays it's pretty much only sloth or gluttony.

Undoubtedly Greed! Who can't commit this sin since the HoM calculator for guild wars??

You know... I can honestly say I haven't engaged in any of those. At least, not to that extent. I do feel pride when I accomplish something, but in comparison to other, more hardcore gamers, I haven't really accomplished all that much. I don't usually get a swelled head about it.

None of them. I may have come close to gluttony. Beyond that I conduct myself in game worlds as I do IRL, as a mature respectable and responsible adult.

And now the flaming and down voting may commence. It seems y'all don't like people like me, LOL.

@Ayenn You've certainly got Pride covered IRL though.

•Wrath: Have you wigged out on your guild, engaged in nerd rage, or cussed out your PUG?

No.

•Greed: Are you never satisfied with your wealth and gear, but always need more, more, more?

Yes. Muahahaha! But isn't that the point of a lot of MMOs? But I have gone to sinful extremes, cornering markets and inflating prices to turn a profit.

•Pride: Do people know you as "that player who's always waving around his or her e-peen"?

Nah.

•Lust: If there's a naked elf dancing on a mailbox, do you stop to look -- and take screenshots?

Maybe, cartoon nudity is kinda week. If I'm horny I log and sweet talk my gf.

•Sloth: Are you too lazy to get off your butt and finish that major project in game that you've been putting off?

Too lazy to get off my butt and finish household chores, the tasks in games get done.

•Envy: Do you constantly find yourself on edge because other players have the cool uber-loot that you lack?

Not for long, but I usually play full loot games.

•Gluttony: Have you played a little too much -- OK, way too much -- when you know you have other things to be doing?

Yes! Forgive me father.

I guess I can call pride how many hours I've been spending trying to make cute outfits for my LotRO characters. Love the outfit system, all games should copy that :) ...and yes, I do have The Sims.

Definitely Sloth. I don't get to play as much as I used to though.
