* How might we design a system in which a player can construct an meaningful in-game identity?
Players want the option to create representations of themselves in games that are as similar as possible to their real-life identities. This is essential in games in which character customization is an element, especially if it is a central feature, such as in life simulators and MMRPGs. Identities such as, but not limited to, race, gender identity, and sexual orientation are all complex constructs, and players want to be able to represent their identities as accurately as possible. Furthermore, players do not want their customized characters to be hampered by stereotypical behaviors and markers.
