Default Avatars and Sex

December 13th, 2007, 12:04
I can easily read a book and be captured to a degree where I temporarily forget about my immediate surrounding and imagine being a part of the environment described in it. This is immersion for me - I realise the term can mean anything or nothing at all partly due to game advertisement - and as you say, magerette, the avatar of an RPG is not necessarily important in this respect, much less its visual appearance (tabletop gaming would be nonexistant if visual splendor would be paramount).

What I was really wondering was whether some people play an RPG purely for the enjoyment of "acting a role", and not for their own immersion into a different environment. I can see how this could be fun, too, in particular if you are playing with your friends.
