The goal of this study was to investigate the importance of empathy, and more specifically perspective taking towards an avatar, in the possible change of social belief through video game experience. Participants were randomly assigned into two groups. The control group played a single and simple chapter of the game Detroit: Become Human (Quantic Dream, 2018) in which they incarnated a female android. The experimental group also played a second strongly emotionally and morally immersive chapter of that same game. The results showed a positive evolution in the beliefs concerning topics directly addressed in the game, more specifically in significantly higher avatar-emotional connection context. Therefore, cognitive empathy seems to be a moderator of belief change in video game environment.
