1 You are in a dark corridor. You can go forwards (go to 2) or backwards (go to 3). 2 You walk forwards. After a while, you pause. Go to 1. 3 You turn around and walk forwards. After a while, you rest. When you finish resting, go to 1. 400 Eh? How did you get to this section? No matter, for the Deadshadowrunner has found you. The last things you see are a pair of sly eyes and a grinning mouth with sharp teeth floating in the darkness.
Strictly a nerd is someone who excels at education. A geek has obsessional interests. A dork is someone who has problems with social interaction maybe autism territory.
Maybe we suffer from 'geek' a little bit but all hobbies and interests are like that. As long as you have a sense of humour and an ironical understanding then you are unlikely to be a true geek. For instance if you post the same response to just about everything when the subject matter is very different or calls for multiple interpretations then you probably have major deficits to the point where you cannot interpret those deficits and respond accordingly. Such a person does not belong on the board if they spoil it for everybody else.
Not a religous cult. An anti religious cult. There are wicca cults, hoodoo cults, yoga cults, voodoo cults, why not a fighting fantasy cult? Not a reality based on fiction, but a fiction transformed into reality. What is real after all? these two seconds of existence?
In my own opinion, I think an adult interested in FF is very likely to be introverted, more so than the average bookworm. FF is essentially a solo RPG combined with a fantasy novel, smack bang in introvert territory. Everything else about that person is likely an unknown without more information.
FF was originally aimed at a younger audience, but that doesn't mean it is nerdy to enjoy it. Are Harry Potter fans all nerds for the same reason?
But I suppose you have to define what a nerd is before you can answer that question. Some of the posters above have provided some clues as to what the characteristics are of a "nerd", but I think it is a meaningless term altogether.
So my answer to your original question is that it doesn't matter.
