Your comparison with a physical game fails due to a physical games characters having no original consciousness or soul of their own.
They are as artificial and "one dimensional" as they can be. We on the other hand, are multidimensional, we have a physical body - which you can
consider the "character" in the "game". And we have a Consciousness, or Soul, which is trapped within that "character". But these two are
separate from eachother, even though they co-exist trapped together, at the same time they also live out different lives in different realities, the
physical and the non-physical or astral.
As a better analogy than your own, think of it this way:
Other beings, which we can call Gods, created physical Robots. They animated these Robots by taking Souls - Spirits - and trap them within the Robots
so the Robots would have a Mind and Consciousness and be able to control. They manipulate the Soul within the Robots to make the Robot carry out the
tasks they, the Gods, want them to. Thus, the Soul - or Spirit - could be the "software" that keeps the Robots running. But , since this
"software" already existed and was NOT created by the same Gods whom created the Robots, these are two different things that are separated, were
separated, and can become separated again.
Thus, becoming aware of being trapped within a Robot in a Prison World, being manipulatd by a Trap System, the Soul has a chance to regain its true
individuality and not the current created individuality, and break free from its Robotic shell and the Trap System and go back to where it originally
came from, outside the Trap System.
In a sense, you could also use the movie Matrix as an example here, where this world is an "illusion" or "game" created by these Gods, and we are
kept trapped here within the "game" but in reality we are located somewhere else, outside of the game, but connected to the game without knowing it.
The difference is that in the movie Matrix the Physical bodies were connected and trapped from outside, here our physical bodies are the trap, and our
Souls are what is to be found connected to the Physical bodies somewhere outside the "game".
Our whole spiritual essence, our true being, is not within the physical bodies, but a part of our awareness, while our true Higher Souls exists
outside of the Physical world but are in a slumber due to the awareness(es) being trapped in physical bodies.
Some individuals have managed to connect to their Higher Soul, and see what is happening from the outside, yet the only way to truly get back to once
Higher Soul, or once true state of being, is by death, thus Life should be a Preparation for Death, and spiritual practice of utter most importance to
make sure one will keep the awareness and knowledge after death and be able to merge back with the Higher Soul and get away from the Trap System
before one are being re-absorbed into it all and trapped over again, reincarnated, having all memory erased, etc.
Hope this made a more clear picture of what I am trying to explain.
