A continuum of changing characters

I remember playing role playing games for some years. Although I have had some attempts at playing I mainly reside on the table side of the DM screen and creating the adventures and spending hours reading and re-reading rule books. I’ve recognised numerous changes across the years. From games being played round a table on a bank holiday or Friday night, through the use of letters (as in snail mail) to the new use of Roll20 and/or Skype to bring the players together. Although the game has changed I’ve also noticed a change in players. When I refer to players I’m not being they have grown older, although they probably have, but more of the characters they choose to play and, when considering this in more detail, I started to realise that the characters people play follow some sort of pattern.
