    Roleplay games have a tendency to claim that you'll enjoy the game because you feel 'immersed', or 'feel as if you're part of the game' yourself. Now, thinking about this, how much do you value immersion, or the feeling that you are "part of the game"? Or, do you feel that you play certain games like this, because... they're just fun?

    What are your thoughts?

    I really like games where you are part of the story, you develop your (your characters) ideas about the cities, NPCS, and the events which are going on.

    I also love how games are giving more choices, especially RPG games, and giving more control to the player rather than being dictated to.

    I love the games where you are part of game.
    It gives you the feeling of "living" the game instead of "playing"

      I rarely feel that feeling, unless I'm playing something like Skyrim, with all the lights off, and headphones.

      And I don't actually own headphones that connect to Playstations.
