Book Description

15 Aug 2009
With videogames now one of the world's most popular diversions, the virtual world has increasing psychological influence on real-world players. This book examines the relationships between virtual and non-virtual identity in visual role-playing games. Utilizing James Gee's theoretical constructs of real-world identity, virtual-world identity, and projective identity, this research shows dynamic, varying and complex relationships between the virtual avatar and the player's sense of self and makes recommendations of terminology for future identity researchers.

3.0 out of 5 stars first quarter was awesome 23 Jan 2013
By David Dellman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first 50 pages or so were really great. After that this book reads like a PhD dissertation filled with detail that is really only of interest to the most scholarly and since I am a “pop” user I simply didn’t need all of the references and detail.
