the avatar dressing and modifying - seems to be an important part of the game for the students.
Yet - some are finding that they want their avatar to look like them as much as possible. That was their first assignment and they didn't like it at hte time. Now they have total freedom with how they look. They tried out different hair and skin color and clothes and shapes - it was overwhelming for some of them with all the choices. Then they're slowly going back to the original look.
I wonder how true that is overall. If the people flying around in Jedi soldier uniforms or pikachu costumes are relatively new and over time they slowly change back to normal too.
And then do people stop playing? Once the character is "normal looking" - is the excitement of the game over?
That's the question for the rest of the semester...
