GoG Short #7 – For All the Toons We’ve Loved Before Play Embassy

In Game on Girl Shorts #7, Rhonda and I discuss what it’s like to lose an avatar. Rhonda shares her story of losing her FemShep when her PlayStation3 crashed.

We discuss how and why we connect to our avatars, how creating a character you play is very similar to how authors create their characters in the stories they tell, and how we’ve heard similar stories from other gamers about how this impacts how you view a game. We hope with this short episode to explore a new theme and hear more of your stories about what it is like to lose a character. How do you approach the loss of a character? Do you have any suggestions or ideas you’d like to share?

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on the episode. Leave a comment here or Drop us a Tweet @game_on_girl.

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.

  1. This is a great idea for a podcast! I'll give it a listen as soon as I can, and share a story of my own.

  2. Excellent! Can't wait to hear what you think and your story. 🙂

  3. Whoops! What I meant by "reference added" is the response link I added above. I'll try to state that clearer next time. Thanks for the link, Regina. 🙂
