Do you know that how you picture yourself in the virtual world of video games may signify how you behave with others in the real world?
A player’s persona in the game world is known as an avatar that is usually represented by a little person or creature. The player guides the avatar through the game world, somewhat like handling the strings of a puppet. The player is inspired to project him-or herself into the avatar’s personality, that leads merging of the puppet’s personality with the personal identity. This is a very compelling combination that can be best realized by comparing the avatar to the fantasy persona associated with the player’s favorite type.
For example, if you love cars you can perhaps think of Ferraris or BMWs. This relates to the feel of driving the car at the moment, building a great experience for the driver. These impacts can be more powerful when the “vehicle” is a fabricated on-screen person that reacts to your every move.
When you have an on-screen avatar, you are pulled more effectively and deeply into the game world, incorporating the social interaction of that experience. The video game avatars are connected with the intensive social activity, such as laughing or shouting as you play. This is because you feel more closely attached to the action in the game and what happens to your avatar completely alter your own feelings in the moment of gameplay. With the rise of customization abilities, you can build your avatar into the most powerful and the one reflecting your personality. And these effects have become even more stronger.
Hence, Video Games have taken two dominant impressions:
- The expansion of the physical self and description with a virtual self.
- Both are combined to create the new kinds of compassionate and connective experience.
