When I was coming up for this arc, this strip was something that I thought was essential to the heart of it.
I like Lizzy’s attitude and how she approaches filling out the form. She’s our de facto “girl gamer” in ZR, and I try to write her dorkiness just like the guys. I don’t think the fact that she’s a girl means she needs to be less of a dork.
In many ways she’s a better dork than the guys as she is consistently better at video games than all of the other guys and sometimes all of them combined.
I struggled with who she would have this conversation with. I thought about Zoey and Lyn, but neither of them would realistically have known what a gamerscore would be… At least not with the information we’ve seen about them to date… Who knows, maybe Lyn is a hardcore gamer. Probably not though.
