When it comes to playing games.Do you see the avatar your playing as yourself
like an alter ego or your actual self, or you see yourself as a third party guiding their actions
like a bug on their shoulder called a "conscious".
Of course, It doesn't have to be a "one size fits all" answer.
Like for example, When I play a multiplayer online games like "runescape"I see the avatar as
myself but as a female one I see the avatar as my alter ego.If I play offline games like "skyrim"
I see myself as third party as a bug on my avatar's shoulder,
of course sometimes as an alter ego.
