Abstract

Role-playing games -along with social networks- have become the most popular leisure activity online. This paper locates the origin of these web platforms in the digital evolution of collaborative narratives and role-playing games. In order to do so, it studies the evolution of the role-playing game through its different digital adaptations and presents the evolution of other narrative forms through the introduction of hypertext. To end up, it analyzes the image projected by the user in these narratives, where a social network profile is considered as a character itself.
