I know it happens all around various number of (rpg) games but it really annoys me. When I read toons it just reminds me of the Looney Tunes or something. And I suppose it is short hand for cartoons which also makes no sense to me. I grew up playing games like Diablo II where people just called them chars or characters which is good. and I think I first saw the term toons used in Diablo III and I really was like wt*! I never played WoW or LoL where it possibly also is used. Do any of you share my opinion that toons is a ridiculous word and should never be used? Also, if someone knows more about its origin please tell it here.
