Types of RPGs You Into?

Tips: 0.50 INK Postby Zodia195 on Sat Oct 28, 2017 5:14 pm

Hi there everyone. I know people tend to mention what kind of RPGs they're into either on their profile page or in their Intro on the Welcome page, but I wanted to create a topic for it here. On a side note, it be nice if the mods of the site could create a Pinned Thread for people to list what kind of rpg people are generally into. It's okay though.

Anyway, a sure fire way for me to become interested in an RPG is if it has romance in it. Pretty much over 95% of rpgs I've been in have had that element. The 5% that didn't have it though, they at least had intriguing storylines and settings, especially if they're in a Fantasy setting. I will admit though, I am pretty picky though.

I have noticed that over the years I've become more selective of things in general since I know what I like. So what about the rest of ya'll?

Hi Zodia, I moved your topic to RPG design as it's a much better suited forum for this sort of topic. (great question to ask btw too!)

As for what type of RP?
I generally steer clear of Romance/Highschool/Slice of life type. I'm more an escapist and enjoy Science Fiction and Fantasy, but not high fantasy with dwarfs.. more like dark/gritty Dresden Files like stuff.

Thank you Absenthia.

Lol, I use roleplay purely for escapism hehe. I grew up on fairy tales and since I had a well . . . hard childhood, I wanted to create my own stories and fairy tales became a safe haven. The idea of love itself just spoke to me because I was so desperate for it. That's why I love romance base RPGs as an adult. Hey I am single too lol, so I at least want my characters to have that 'happy ending' lol.

Role-playing shooters are shooter games with RPG elements. Borderlands, for example, has you put points in various stats as you level up. MMORPGs, or massively multiplayer online role-playing games, are RPGs where you play online with other characters, such as World of Warcraft.
