Hehe, I've done this in Guild Wars 2, my guy walks around in a fully hot pink (I think that exact color) outfit.

I still don't get what the problem is. So pretty things in virtual worlds are pretty in the real world too? Weeee, science. Apparently these researchers just discovered that we like pretty things. Nobel price for them!

The vast majority of people try to make what they feel is the 'coolest' or 'sexiest' avatars. I know this based on the bazillions of game hours I've played making the most stupidest looking avatars possible, when possible cause it's WAY more funny and ultimately more cool...

"People who see the effects of exercise on their bodies in the virtual world will exercise more in the real world."

I played GTA: San Andreas and went to the gym a fair bit. Do I exercise more in the real world? Nope.

Now get a load of my sexy avatar!
