I always write/imagine the backstory of my character, if the game is of RPG origin and it doesn't use preset characters(Think Geralt et al). Even in Diablo and such games where it's crazy to expect of me to imagine anything to begin with, I do the backstories. I H.A.T.E. it when the game tells me who I am or what I should do.

I also pay great tribute/care to naming characters. I'll use two examples that could be obvious, but they really aren't. Warcraft example: what's the difference between VELDAAR and VELDAR. Also which race is named thusly? Second example(Elven one): which one is of Wood Elf origin: Felerion or Aethilmar(what a nice name! Just thought of it!)? See what I mean ;) THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT to me. You wouldn't name a German daughter Nu-Lin would you? The same goes for the Chinese son and Sigmar(sorry I had to :P).

But I am a dinosaur because I treat games like interactive novels, not like "HERP DERP PLAY WHEN DRUNK" experiences that fratboys of today do in ever increasing amounts.

Then there is a point that most people don't know how to write in paragraphs, let alone coherently. People today are sadly more illiterate than they were 10 years ago(added stress etc worked its magic). Games also aren't made to be RPed in. Compare Morrowind/Daggerfall to Skyrim/Oblivion. Compare DaOC to WAR. Compare EQ to WoW. Note all these "HOT" mmo nonsense of late(Scarlet Blade etc). When the game has got nothing going for it, it'll use EVERY CONCEIVABLE asset to promote itself. Including tits, asses etc. Sadly.

I don't RP that much because I don't find it appealing becuse the RP in games came down to "texting outside of inn" or various ERPs(/shudders). I even create characters on the RP servers (Argent Dawn WoW, Argent Rift, EU RP server LoTR:O, RP PvE server AoC{while it was still online}, ...), but I find it so rarely and in so watered down versions that I lose all desire to RP. Still, the community is WAAAY better on those servers. That's why I play on those servers in the First place. When the games will embrace RP like they used to(DAoC, EQ, vanilla WoW, U:O etc), I'll be RPing like I used to(can't wait for it! :P). Hell I even wrote my own backstory/parallel story when I was playing NWN 1 in SINGLEPLAYER. That was SO MUCH FUN and better than just whacking random mobs that I can't describe it. Is like living and breathing through your character.

Meh perhaps one day eh? Until then I can yearn(what with all the unique mmorpgs being taken offline etc) :D

I roleplay my ass off even in games that don't call for it. For example, I roleplay in LoL.

Ahh yes, "Hypers." The people who praise and hate every MMORPG... We've dismissed that claim.

You can't google exact guides on roleplay, so nobody does it anymore :-) It needs creativity and imagination. Not just a follow the herd/copy the leader attitude.

 

1. There's simply no space for it, every time wasting feature of modern games is removed for convenience (we have group/dungeon finders, instant adventure/quest systems etc).

2. There's no need for it to get anything. When's the last time you had to do a decent acting to get gear ? There were fun times when some unusual and elaborate begging could net you help from complete strangers just because of the performance.

3. RP does not match instant gratification attitude.

The decline of roleplay in rpgs is the fault of the role players, not those who have no interest in it. I am all for it, but in the post ten years the Role play communities in every mmo I have played caused me to avoid them like the plague. 8 out of ten "role players" have ridiculously over the top back stories, often involving being at least part vampire, part demi-god...or both....even when said back story makes no sense in the game's lore. The other 2 in ten thinks Role play means cyber sex... Obviously I am exaggerating a little, but the fact is I avoid roleplay in online games because most of the people who role play in them are horribly bad at doing it, completely over the top such that it ruins immersion, or only interested in cyber sex...the roleplay community itself killed role-playing.

From what i have seen on most mmos RP has turned in to ERP. when i ask for a RP guild i end up getting 4-7 offers for ERP guilds. I do miss the days of UO where i could RP all day long while lvling it was fun and a great way to kill stress

I love roleplaying In MMO's but its just rarely ever supported.

The last MMO i remember some form of roleplay support in was World of warcraft.

 

Theres never any roleplaying servers so we're forced to start roleplaying guilds, they have trouble being found and slowly decay over time just to vanish.

 

Without support roleplay will always be an incredibly hard to find minority of the playerbase.

Actually most RP websights will get togeather and vote on a server as the "unofficial server" for RP GW2 is tarnished coast and piken square (TC=NA PS=EU)

My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

I've never had much luck RPing in MMOs. Probably the reason I've been playing text games for as long as I have. I lose something when I can see what's happening, rather than when I'm forced to imagine it.

I'm a MUDder. I play MUDs.

Current: Dragonrealms (That's right, I pay 15 bucks a month for a text game.)

That's just my opinion. But it also could be that people are too lazy nowadays. Or find it "Uncool".

Don't you think it's because this genre has become incredible limited as in just being a online combat game with some progression feature's?. There isn't much freedom to do what you want unless it involves combat.

For me the old provided me with allot of different playstyle's put into a MMORPG. Which in turn gave allot more "roleplay" oppertunity's.

I'm young (late-teenage years, early twenties over here) and I gotta say from what I've heard from all of the older RPers I've met in my time roleplaying I wish I was around for it back then. I don't even mean on MMOs, either. I started roleplaying at like thirteen? That was on e-feds, then I switched over to forum based roleplaying and around fifteen I was involved in SA-MP's RP world. I'm one of those who adds a level of RP no matter what game it is. I can't help it, and I don't frown at it because that's what I find enjoyable. I play Most Wanted when I'm pretty bored and even on there I'll drive at low speeds and act like I'm going to get something to eat. Then if I'm on Skyrim I don't even focus on what the game wants me to do I just explore and do things my character would do. Recently, I was invited to WoW. A friend from SA-MP rp servers (which is GTA San Andreas multiplayer for those who don't know) was going on and on about how much fun she has on these WoW servers. So I do some homework on it and after reading all the things I've read about it on Google, I don't even wanna give it a try. I would like to roleplay in some fantasy setting with mature RPers but I guess those don't exist. I think everyone in this thread for letting me know that even trying to roleplay on MMORPGs is a terrible experience. You really saved me from wasting my time. I guess I'll stick to LS-RP on SAMP lol. It may have a real life setting with gangs, cops, organized crime, drug dealers and serial killers but at least there is in-depth roleplay there with character development, rules against non rp names, metagame, powergame, etc. Again, thank you all for saving me my time.

 

HOWEVER, seeing as how a lot of the people who have posted in this thread seem to be hardcore roleplayers please give me some suggestions. I wouldn't mind even roleplaying with y'all in whatever games you happen to be playing. As long as the rp is good! Not no half ass RP with rpers who typ lyk dis n only want 2 troll n esex while they wank.

 

Sorry for whatever grammar mistakes to whatever grammar nazis they would/do concern.. This seems like a passive forum and I don't think grade-A English matters here.

I tried to RP in WoW for a little while, but no one seemed to understand why my mage was going on about death being the only thing that seemed to grant her magical knowledge. I mean, if I'm in a game, and somehow killing boars makes me wiser, you're damned right my character's going to say something!

And the next time I tried it, I drove myself crazy saying everything in the Trollish accent...

I do the bulk of my roleplaying in person or on IRC, where I've been in a game for almost four years now. I don't think I've been really inspired to RP in an MMO since I played Lord of the Rings Online way-back...

I actually had some crazy RP experiences in SWTOR. Their RP site is way more active than the one linked above.

My wife still RPs, shes in FF14 right now.  She mainly plays male characters now, since thats the easiest way to avoid the "r u a girl irl" or "want to cyber?" whispers that she used to get.

 

I tried it back in the Neverwinter days on a private server, wasnt for me.

My RPing ends at giving my characters a setting appropriate name. Although I do sometimes give my characters silly names.

Tell your Wife this isn't the 90s anymore. I have played tons of male & female characters for years and i am yet to get a "r u a girl irl" message. The only time i got a Erotic whisper on a female character was when i wandered into an ongoing ERP in GW2 which was obviously to be expected.

Another thing that's wrong with people, just blindly say things like "the kids these days " tss.

And rp is like a fetish some people are into it others are not. i'm not into it, if i wanted to praise the lord would be christian, as a player i find every other player equall and not lord-titel-worthy. but then again that's personal.

My good dark elf doesn't get frowned upon in EQ2 even on a roleplay server so it's safe to say that people do not roleplay as much as they used to. I put this down to MMORPGs becoming more mainstream and it's not just the pale nerds who play anymore.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.
