In a well-constructed, 400-500 word essay, discuss a single issue about your personal relationship with characters in video games that interests you. Questions you might consider include, but are not limited to:
If you play tabletop roleplaying games, feel free to discuss your relationship with characters in those games as well.
Be specific. Describe a significant game, character, or a specific incident that helps illustrate your point. Consider which aspects of the readings associated with this assignment spoke to you most. (These readings, linked from the class schedule, are: “My disabled son’s amazing gaming life in the World of Warcraft” by Vicky Schaubert, “The Power of the Makeover Mage” from the Imaginary Worlds Podcast, and “Saving Grace” from The Nod Podcast.) Try to include specific details of those sorts, even if none of your game character experiences are similarly dramatic.
Tie your thoughts together into an essay with a clear thesis idea that expresses the central issue you are exploring. Be sure to proofread your work for spelling, grammar and clarity. We highly suggest reading your writing out loud, or enlisting a friend to read it out loud to you if possible.
