I was thinking to myself the other day, eventhough these are roleplaying games?... How much of us actually Roleplay?
I mean, if someone was to approach me In-Game acting as if he was on a great quest to kill the goblin king and he requests my help as a noble Knight to defeat him. I'd look atmy screen funny, and wonder if he's crazy.
However isn't this why these games were made and the basis of it? ...
I wouldve never RP'd because I thought it's just too much effort to put into a game then 3 years+ ago I accidently went to Roleplay on a server that was set up for multiplayer "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas", a script was made to remember the amount of money you had, the weapons you were carrying, the ability to lock your car (therefor owning one) and do actions through commands. I spent a year RPing there and it was crime based, getting deliveries, selling drugs on to other bosses, etc .. as a mixture of characters were there (from small time gangs, mafioso, Yakuza, triads, hippies.. anything in the single player game)
I would NEVER roleplay in real life... (not that theres anything wrong wih it) however I do admit I enjoy Roleplaying when I never thought I would.
Developers work on a back story to the games setting, the races and how they behave, how people behave from certain towns/areas, etc... So why isn't it ever used.
So do you guys roleplay between your friends? what do you think of roleplay?
P.S. Wow... wrote more than I thought I would.
