I can't believe they're even listing Furcadia AT ALL on this place--
or maybe what I REALLY CAN'T BELIEVE is that it has THAT HIGH a user rating!
Furcadia isn't a GAME; it's a graphical chatroom at best and an okay
environment to run games IN. As in, freeform RP -or- Dungeons and
Dragons or other tabletop dice-rollers. OTHERWISE, furcadia is a tool
for interpreting something YOU want to build, like a castle or a town
or even your own home; and the architectural capabilities of furcadia
are REALLY LOW.
The downsides of furc are thus: there is NO system, there is NO organizatoin, there are NO RULES except 'don't grief'.
The downsides reduce furcadia to a clean slate of ZEROness.
But there are upsides; furcadia is an environment that covers a social and cultural niche.
If you have no imagination, furcadia will mean nothing to you.
If you have no patience, furcadia will mean nothing to you.
If you have no creativity, furcadia will mean nothing to you.
If you have no maturity, furcadia will mean nothing to you.
If you don't like furries, Furcadia will mean even LESS to you >.<
If you ARE patient, mature, imaginative, and creative, furcadia is a
method by which one may give their fantasies a form, tell a story, or
make friends. But it is a very undeveloped environment. Giving it a try
won't hurt, but...
...you might not get much from it.
