So I was talking to a friend and he mentioned that he got his wife hooked on WoW by showing her some cute and cuddly little thing. I think it was a cat or rabbit pet or something like that. That was her first step toward becoming an endgame raider.
My question is: Has anyone seen any "cute + cuddly" gateways into the game for the typical non-gamer?
I've seen any number of things which could be considered cool or even awe inspiring, but I can't say I ever remember seeing anything that might be considered cute and cuddly about Rift.
