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.

Until next time, Game On!
Regina and Rhonda
