Paper Title:
MMORPGs: The Perspective from Psychology
  Abstract

Every day, millions of users interact, collaborate, and form relationships with each other through avatars in online environments known as Massively Multi-User Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs). These online environments offer tantalizing glimpses of how millions of avatars interact on a daily basis outside of a laboratory setting and what users derive from that experience. In this paper, the demographics, motivations, experiences among Chinese MMORPG Players will be presented, analyzed and discussed.
