Absolutely important.   If the character customization is poor, I am far less likely to continue playing the game.   And everyone looking the same is somewhat immersion breaking for me.  That's especially bad for the gear grinder games where everyone ends up in the same armor because it's the minimaxed. 

 

Character customization, Gui, and gameplay are the big three, for me.

If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

I voted Important. I really didn't notice how much I really needed to have a good character creator and customization options until recently. I tried to jump into a game and just could not get the look I wanted and it completely put me off from playing it. 

"In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo

I voted important. I don't need the best graphics, but if I can't like the look of my character, not going to play it. Usually there is at least 1 race I can find that I will like. It is not just the look either, but sometimes the animations. Battle animations I could ignore because I'm so focused on the fighting, but things like running, walking, have to be good.

I remember in daoc, when I was playing some hibs, I wanted a lurikeen. Like the look of them, and being small for the pvp was nice. The male lurikeens running animation were awful! I tried, but could not keep playing them. Females ran just fine, were smaller too so worked out well.

voted not important. i spend 99% of my game time looking at my backside so who cares if i have pointy eyebrows? i dont stop and look at other people and they dont stop to stare at me. i do like to have armor that matches though, hate looking like a rainbow warrior.

Very important. I think because the gameplay does become repetitive in some areas (some areas earlier than others) having the game be visually pleasing, including the thing that is allways included on my screen is very important to me. - I also find most of the games I play are in some way or another about a vertical ladder of equipment, - I need to care about how that equipment looks on my character. - So to me graphics and character graphics matter alot. But so does the environment graphics and overall ambience of the world. - I never last long in games where I find the overall character design, as well as armor and weapons design to be sloppy, boring or not inline with my own esthetics. - Your example of the Elin and potpourri (LOL) races from TERA is a good example. I could never play TERA if those were my only choice in races. Likewise I would never have played WOW if I could only have played as a gnome or a goblin.

Depends which direction you approach things from. "Not generally that important" might be true, for a given person...yet I've heard literally hundreds of gamers express "I just can't play a <race>". The "cute" races seem to be particular anathema to teenage males, for instance. PVP players (many of them) won't play a "poncy" race like elves, etc.

If a character doesnt look the way I want then im being forced to play a role I dont want to play.

Doesnt matter if its a fugly orc, a hot elf, alien elf(tes) or a human...but then again, I play RPGs because of the RP, not the G.

RPGs with character generators = yes.

RPGs with set characters = no thanks, youll get no money from me to support your limited game.

GW2 socialist.

Not as important as it is to some; after all I played WoW for years and the character models weren't even advanced when it was created, much less now when you have models like TERA and GW2 out there.

However, I do like plenty of options, and sliders.  Variety is always good.

another thing i have noticed as we move more and more into the "better graphics" age of MMOs graphics have become more and more important to many people.  You still see lots of graphics mean nothing posts but for me after playing games of a particular genre with great graphics its harder to play ones with bad graphics(for me at least).

Naw, I'll always be highly resistant to the GPU salesman's best pitch. Too much overexposure to hardware arguments in the earliest PC vs Mac days. Windows 3.1, we had so many proprietary and really twichy sound cards and video cards... Eventually, when they start marching out the acronyms, your eyes just glaze right over.

well to be fair aside from characters LOTRO is a great looking game.. try going back to EQ1 or AC.. i know many people still play but I just can't do the visuals anymore in those older games...

i agree good looks will not make a horrible game good but for me horrible looks will make a mediocre to decent game horrible

The faces and hair are extremely important to me.  If I'm not happy with my character's appearance I can't enjoy the game, no matter how great the rest is.  And oddly it's been some more recent mmo's than older ones that have had what I consider some pretty ugly character faces.  The armor I'm not so picky about as long as it's not skimpy.  And weapons as long as they aren't silly large, I don't really care what they look like.

Don't give a damn at all, completely and totally irrelevant.  I'm here to have a good time.  I can't remember the last game where I used any of the social slots at all, I wear the armor that is most effective, I use the weapons that are most effective, and don't give a rat's ass what any of it looks like.  I play 100% of the time from the first-person perspective anyhow, I have no idea what I look like!

Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
Now Playing: None
Hope: None
