  10. 10. simulation game second life example 1 Your avatar live in the virtual world in computer provides real experience to players The virtual character is your avatar. You can do something both can or cannot do in the real life which makes the people more involved in the game. You are able to restart a new character whenever wherever, but this would not affect your real life. People are easily engaged into the game even it is fiction since the activity of avatar is almost exactly the same as that in reality. Judith W (2008).
