I remember when the totality of our online gaming presence was a name. It was a major upgrade when we got to choose an image to be our avatar, though many gaming networks limited us to pictures they made available to us. Then games got into the action, and on the xbox network you could download profile images from the games you owned. And finally some of the gaming networks introduced fully 3D avatars you could design to look however you wanted. To look like you. When Xbox did that, I took full advantage of that to make a number of xbox accounts with the names of my characters, and to created their 3D models. Here is Betty’s Xbox avatar.
