Now that we have so many new faces around the site, I'm seeing a lot of Game Geex logos in the comments. This got me thinking that perhaps our newest community members don't have any ideas about upgrading their avatars. Finding avatars that fit your interests sometimes can be difficult. It's particularly challenging because we as gamers want to be defined as unique.
Well in the interest of saving you time, I spent a couple hours coming the interwebs for some images that might suit some of your tastes. Choose any that you like, right click and save them to your computer, then head on over to the settings section (link right up there by your name when you're logged in, and upload the image to your profile. If there are any avatars that you would like me to add to the post (maybe your favorite game is missing, or you're really a cuddly ducky kinda guy) let me know and I'll see about updating our selection.
This isn't mandatory by any means, but more of your friendly neighborhood Game Geex staffer looking to save you some time and help you customize your profile all in one blow. Granted, if you're the DIY type, you can make your own custom avatars, as long as their are 400 x 400 (that's pixels). Or you can just use what we have here. Might I suggest the hot dog?
Make sense that we start with the game our contest is all about, right? Here are a couple manly MW3 avatars to fit with the week's theme.
Or perhaps some Gears is more your style?
?It's blocktastic, and now it can be your avatar!
Lastly, here are some avatars for those tender folks in the audience that just want to be represented by something innocuous and cuddly.

[Update: Here are some more avatars, as requested in the comments -- ?Halo 3 and Street Fighter 4?]
