..has it influenced your character, your attitude. For example:
-For a "christian", playing space marines, would perhaps cause him/her to be more inclined to adopt an increasingly uncompromised/merciless view of the "enemies" of his beliefs. ie He/she may feel the strong urge to smash Marilyn Manson into a bloody pulp (what with him being a satanist), and/or "cleanse him with fire" (as would a black templar mash up a human who has fallen to the ruinous powers). The Imperium would (indirectly) teach him/her the concept of "righteous fury".
-Or another example would be: Orks imbueing one with "Orky spirit": that includes fightin' and loads of dakka. See this as a (rather extreme) example: YouTube - fighting around the world with russel crow (very orky).
That is it would teach an otherwise "sissy teenager" the concepts of combat/fighting/brawling. (Atleast analogically).
The above 2 are more striking examples.
Feel free to add more examples.

Dont want to stunt this thread before its had a fair chance, but jut a little warning, careful where it goes. It does have potential flaming all over it.... Dont be surprised if another mod comes along ad instant locks it.
Well I'll be honest 40k has made me a little more optimistic. Read enough 40k fluff and you can't help but think 'it could always be worse'

I'll tell you what - being a Christian and a Daemonhunter player (who else could I be) has made me look at the "non-Christian" ideologies a bit different. I can relate those who choose other religions as those who play chaos. Since fiction is a reflection of the real-world (otherwise you wouldn't have anything to relate to) it is easy to see the parallels between the Horus/Satan, Daemons/chaos demons, the Emperor/God, etc.
And there it goes....
As a Dark Eldar player I can't say I now feel the urge to remove the skin from anyone not a member of my Kabal, and comsume their souls...
I hope no one is turning agressive and violent because of our beloved 40K, they already blame video games for all that, don't give the so-called 'journalists' more ammunition!
On topic, 40K has actually made me LESS competative(mainly due to LO I should add). It's tought me that winning isn't the point, it's the fun of the game and the player interaction that counts.

There are few things more embarrasing than a wargamer who goes red in the face when he loses and throws things about or has an 'attack'.
It's just a game afterall.
I always think it's better that you influence your 40K personally.
Hence my CSM's obsession with running into close combat backwards. Or my discotrons.
Well I suppose that since most of my life revolves around playing this game it's influenced me in some way.
Ummm... no. Only thing I would think of would probably be a willingness to dig into sci-fi/fantasy literature.
And to rend everyone, in great fury I might ad, who call elves pansies.
