Should every game have a completely unique hairstyle and voices?

    One of the issues games have is copying hairstyles. This shows a lack of creativity and is also stealing someones design, which makes it viable for a lawsuit.

    The other thing that developers take are voices. If the game is voice acted, it often has very similar voices of another game a lot of the times. Many times I'm playing a game...like Witcher 3 with Geralt. Suddenly I'm playing Spellforce 3 and hear Geralt again! Obviously they took his voice from Witcher 3 and used it. Even though Spellforce 3 is made by an entirely different company and has nothing to do with Witcher at all.

    The recent thread about Cyberpunk  in this section, made me think of all the things that are taken from other games. Hairstyles and voices being the most obvious of these

    Why, oh why do I feel a very strong compulsion to give a political reply ...

    But I am stronger. I resist ! *phew, that was close*

    @OP Yes, a unique hairstyle is critical for any game that wants to be successfull. At least in these times.

    Well the hairstyle in games reached the limited long time ago. Sure it's now much better customized, you have thousands of variations, not like the old days with 10-16 fixed haircuts tops. 
    I've been through so many character creation screens, i don't even pay attention now to the hair of my character, i'd want to make it fast and run the game asap. I think the customization option gave the reason to do a mockup character with crazy troll hair, or spend an hour going for a realistic haircut. 

    As of voice acting, i wouldn't mind finding out that Peter Griffin voice actor was used in 10 MMORPGS as a side-quest character voice. Voice acting was never a problem for me, i usually don't notice differences between games and if some characters sound familiar or not. It's like with the hairstyle customization, you really don't notice much difference 
    Welcome to the boards. There are lots more hairstyles in MMOs now, but as always it is quality over quantity, I expect a proper pompadour always! :)

    Are there "of age" lolis?

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    No.  Not every game should have voices, unique or otherwise.

    Guild wars 2 take on lolis is interesting. And by interesting I mean a race that is not cute but has that evil genius in a tiny bottle vibe.

    Lolis as depicted in Asian designed mmorpgs is an asian based take on the short races. Typical example is how male and females are depicted in Lineage.

    Wait are these the real people or somehow photoshoped?  :D
    If they are real i find it amusing, it would add up to the theory that we are living in the game and before we are born we can choose our characters, and some of us are trolls who are born with randomized settings XD

    Well, each manga and anime usually has it's own unique hairstyle. Or I should say, it has a whole unique set of fashion. It's part of the design of the "universe".

    Is it important for games?:no
    Is it nice?: It can be

    I think they may have hit that "random" button at creation... :lol:
