What Many RPGs are Missing

 

 

Cordova, TN; December 17, in the year of our Lord 2014--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is looking at a thought from the RPG Master. He feels something is missing in many modern day role playing games (RPGs). Know what it is? What do you think is missing from many modern day role playing games? Aside from a Christian storyline, and family friendly characters. Those two things are worth referencing. This one may have you scratching your head. Unless you played old school role playing games.

“...”

Three dots in a row used to be the standard answer from the main character. Other characters would say outrageous or incendiary things. The main character would stay as cool as a cucumber and respond with: “...” I never thought about it at the time. I should have pondered what “...” really meant. It was the game developers way of having us the player connect with the game. The “...” response allowed us to respond in our own nature. We could respond to the game with what we were thinking. Now some may find it odd to see someone talking to a video game machine. That doesn’t matter. What matters is we were included in the story.

What do we get now? Way too many times we have stereotypes from main characters in role playing games. There are plenty of tough guys and tough girls with bad attitudes. They have some rude, ugly, hateful, and snarky comment to make. But in the end they decide to go save the day from whomever is trying to destroy their fantasy world. I can not connect with those kinds of characters. Plus I never connect with the game at all. Why not? Because my responses are never included. These modern day games are not allowing gamers to connect. They have stolen the “...” from us. I want “...” to be put back into role playing games. I want to be a part of the story again.


God bless,
RPG Master
