Looked around and didn't see a developed topic on this, if I missed it feel free to direct me. Otherwise, let's discuss your favorite character archetypes in games.
I'm talking about species and roles, these are often referred to as races and classes, jobs, professions and everything else under the sun, but I'll use species and roles, you describe it however you like.
I've always wanted more species to be present in games, in general. Roles or class options have expanded a lot over he years, but species have been very limited, even when they offer a dozen different "races", your often relegated to a bunch of bipeds with different features. Some of these are interesting (to me), like Vampires, Werewolves, while others feel horribly overdone, like Elves and Dwarves.
I don't want to spend too much time talking about what I like, but I'll mention some species I'd really like to see in fantasy games which mix up the experience and archetypes you can assume. Centaurs, giant beasts like wolves and Wildcats, giant birds like hawks or mystical creatures like Kirin, Unicorn, Griffin, Sphinx and most of all Dragons, of many variations.
There's a lot more I haven't touched on, but that pretty much communicates what I mean. It would be nice if more MMOs, or more games overall, explored these unique character types and species, we've seen some more spectacular species in recent years, like Angels, Demons, and Vampires, but we are still limited to mostely bipeds, and similar character development and operation paths. It would be nice to see more unique species playable and fleshed out.
I woln't go into roles nearly as much since its not as unexplored as species are, I personally like Samurai, Vampires, and Creature roles, as well as some role division that features flight, and combat that can support battle between characters with different terrain options, like swimming, climbing and so on, without trying to allow everyone to do the same thing.
Beyond that, I just wanna preface this discussion by pointing out that its OK to like what you like, and your preferances don't need to cater to others expectations. Openly share what archetypes you'd find attractive in games, why you are interested in them, and even those you don't like without being preoccupied with the acceptance of others. Hopefully I haven't dragged on too long, let's hear your interests.
