Immersed or the game changes the player
See World of Warcraft (WOW) http://us.battle.net/wow/en/).
I can be patient and wait until you have finished playing online, assuming that you will ever finish your game.
As the fellow who is responsible for the life and death struggles of my avatar Trevalis, I wonder about how playing has changed me (other than of course such seemingly revealing signs of addiction, such as my unwillingness to bathe, much as cleanliness has been my vade mecum, to bathe).
I confess to the fear that I will miss something on the screen if I take a 20 minute shower.
