What if a senator was playing games instead of bashing them?
It’s already happening in Guam, where as reported by the Pacific Daily News, Sen. Ray Tenorio (left) is a serious, level-70 WoW player. Tenorio’s avatar is a Dwarf priest named Paleray on the Silverhand server. He’s a member of a guild, of course, the Knights of the Marianas.
From the PDN report:
Tenorio has been gaming online… for years. His previous game of choice was Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, where he had several top-level characters of various classes. But in November , his brother Charlie made an earnest plea… "We need a healer…"
Of WoW, Tenorio said:
What I like about World of Warcraft is it’s a great way to be able to reach out and connect with other people. So many different people play — attorneys, accountants, geeks, … all kinds of people.
What makes World of Warcraft so alluring is that it’s always reinventing and adding new content. There’s always something new to come back to.
Guam is a territory of the United States and has one non-voting member in the U.S. House of Representatives. Tenorio is a member of Guam’s 15-member unicameral legislature. His official website is here.
