I had a lovely conversation with Sophie after a Wednesday section eons ago about gaming. Sophie prefers casual gaming to hardcore gaming. She said she has had limited experience with gaming in general but when she was a little girl, she played hardcore games at her friend's house.
Sophie stated that the main reason she didn't enjoy hardcore gaming is because the concept of her avatar "dying" bothered her greatly. This seems to strengthened the Dibbell cybersex reading that we did in that the physical human user has an emotional connection to what occurs in the digital interface.
