In mainstream media, roleplaying as a whole tends to have a very bad reputation.

Of course, to RP, one needs to act as a character. A significant amount of [=RPers=] roleplay a character from the favorite book/TV show/movie/whathaveyou (LivejournalRoleplay in particular revolves around this,) but many still come up with completely original characters to use. In an MMO, expect the player to use their in-game avatar.
