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).

In this paper, the demographics, motivations, experiences among Chinese MMORPG Players will be presented, analyzed and discussed.
