PAX East 2015 – Player Select: Identifying with Our Virtual Selves

What is our connection to playable characters? Why is it that we choose to play as a female, male, or another species entirely? Do we feel stronger about certain stories depending on the playable character’s appearance? This panel will explore the connection between the physical and virtual self and how the way we perceive video game characters affects the way we perceive others and ourselves.

Panelists: Neha Tiwari [Founder and Principal Consultant, Twitter], Elisa Melendez [Voice Actor/Musician, Website], Alexa Ray Corriea [Narrative Designer, Twitter], Mitch Dyer [Writer, Website], Mike Laidlaw [CCO, Twitter]
