This question already has an answer here:
I am hoping this is not a dumb question, but I have looked around and not knowing this is really bugging me.
I have heard many people talk about a "Toon" or a "Character", and a few times of a "Sprite", to refer to their fictional characters they play in the game.
I want to know if one of these are more correct than the other?
I have heard more people and websites refer to them as Characters, rather than a 'toon', but what is the difference, if any?
