Hi, Dear Simon:

Should the following be 'involve the player in assuming ...'?

3. Role-playing games involve the player assuming a character, controlling the narrative, and completing tasks in order to advance.

Hi Jimmy,

No, in this case it's best to use "involve" without "in". It's like this sentence:

"Getting fit involves eating healthy food and doing lots of exercise".

We wouldn't use "involves in" in the example above.

2= In present age , as technology is becoming a most fundamental part of daily life ,video games are playing a pivotal role in our societies.

3= All role playing games include number of activities like a player assumed to be a character , who controls the whole surroundings leading toward unlocking the tasks to move forward .

>Video games attract people easily without doubt.

In our world today where technologies bound to run in our daily existence, playing video games plays a vital part to our own society.
>Nowadays, technologies exist almost everywhere. Thus, video games play an important role in our life. (In fact, I have no idea about the connection between the existence of technology and the importance of video games)
