Identity Crisis - Pixels or Death

I’ve always been enamored by MMORPGs. Riveted by the social aspects, I’ve read countless articles on the online happenings of these virtual worlds. But there’s something that itches under my skin when I play these games. My avatar never seems personal; it’s never a unique reflection of my character. The common MMO clumps me into restrictive archetypes, funnels me into builds, and leaves the physical customization up to loot. All of this makes it difficult to feel distinct in a sea of players, and MMO developers haven’t sorted this issue out. (EVE Online, Guild Wars 2, PC, PS3, World of Darkness, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360)
