Fantasy? or sci-fi? or something else?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby miyumi on Sun Jun 24, 2007 7:43 am

Which type of rp do you prefer (we're talking both in chat and in forum here, just looking at genre)


Personally, I like Fantasy, Sci-Fi, realistic, and mixes

Miyumi's more for sci-fi, while most of my other characters are fantasy only. I have a human version of Nicola though who works well for Realistic. So what do you like?

I voted for Fantasy, Battle, and Multiverse.

Here are my reasons why:

Fantasy - I started RPing as a way to write, and my favourite books are Fantasy, and as such that is what I write, so obviously, the aspect of writing in a fantasy setting is right up my street.

Battle - Stemming from RP, I discovered RP fighting, which is what I interpret this particular option as. Turn Based is what I like, and mainly because, again, it is a good way of writing, and I found it to be exciting.

Multiverse - Simply because of the diversity involved. Anything from any genre is accepted. Total freedom.

I occasionally will take part in a realistic RP, but not a fan of it at all. And fantasy and sci-fi is out of my league, I am not enough of a tecnologically minded person, like I said, Fantasy is my thing.

Mystery - -=yawn=-

I have been told on occasion that I should do some horror RPs, because I am supposedly good at building mental images, but it rarely appeals to me.

Well, that's my two cents.

Peace.

Yes, that is what I meant Battle as. You know I know that fighting isn't necessarily rp. =D

and...
::dances:: Someone actually posted which things they voted for! yippee!

Well now, I am posting to tell you what I haven't voted for. In fact I haven't voted for anything for the simple reason that I play in games that interest me, Multiverse isn't a genre as such and holds no appeal whatsoever for me. As for the others if a game in a particular genre interests me then I may join in if it doesn't I don't. The genre is not of any particular relevance to me. So there you are.

Well, I kind of enjoy Fantasy more then anything. But I also like a good mixed rp. ^^ Certain Realistic ones catch my site too but they have to be interesting. I usually get hooked on just Fantasy though and am never able to quit. ><

I chose Mixed and Multiverse.

I can pretty much go with the flow for anything, and to be honest the RPs that I'm used to have a lot if not all the elements listed in the poll. I prefer it that way, makes things more interesting and more exciting.

As for Multiverse....well, isn't it obvious? More characters to choose from, more paths to take, and best of all more fun!

After all, variety is the spice of life :3

I chose Sci-Fi, Mixed, Realistic, and Horror. I'm actually surprised to see so many folks choose Sci-Fi. That is a nice change from the typical Fantasy genre prefered most places.
