Hello fellow gamers,
I have been having issues lately with jumping back and forth between several games trying to find the right one for me. I hit a game hardcore for several weeks to a month and then lose interest and move on to the next one. I'm starting to think that maybe it's not the games but the characters in the games that I'm playing. I tend to just pick a class at random and give it a whirl, try another and just keep trying the majority of them till I'm bored. Maybe if I could find a specific game with my ideal class oriented char then it would stick and I could play the game long term. That is if the class itself is well thought out, coded properly, and is not underpowered in relation to the other classes.
I took several "what fantasy rpg class are you" oriented quizes (14 to be exact) and they all had a similiar results - Thief, Rogue, Night Blade, Assassin, Cutpurse, Shadow Fist...etc. Apparently according to my personality, I'm very drawn to rogue like characters. This seemed to make sense to me when I thoguht about it because when I play Skyrim I tend to sneak around a lot, shoot with bows from cover, attempt to backstab whenever possible, love poisons and tend to steal anything that isn't nailed down.
Could you please give me some ideas for various games with great thief / rogue / assassin classes or professions? I would also like to request that the game suggestions be only for games that you can pvp in. Pvp doesn't have to be the main aspect of the game but I would like it to be in the game. Please include WHY you think the subterfuge oriented CLASS is great in that game. I'm not asking about why the game is great - why is the CLASS great in it and what made you enjoy playing it?
I did not list any games that I have already played as to not create any bias in any of the responses. If you list a game I have already played and give valid reasons as to why you think the class is great in that game, I might just try it again and see if I missed anything.
Sandbox or classless but extensive skill tree based games with stealth / assassination / anything rogue like aspects to it are more than welcome.
Please don't post if you have not played the class yourself and are posting just because it's in the game you like.
Thank you for your time and I appreciate any helpful responses you may have.
Oh and as a last remark - I know that Guild Wars 2 is coming out soon and it has a thief class in it. I'm looking forward to that...but it is not out YET.
