Are there any games that let me play as a peasant?
Is this a round-about way of asking for anime reaction images?
I find it weirdly appealing whenever an online game lets you play as a random peasant asshole instead of a hero. Since most players are egotistical, you're usually one of the few in peasant garb.
Unfortunately, the only one I can think of is Dark Souls 2. I wish more games let you do this.
Don't know of any, but I'm planning on making one. At the beginning, you won't have any skills at all, and even a single common bandit can easily kill you. You will be spitted on and despised by almost everyone in the main cities, as they are the places where the nobles live. You won't be famous, and other people will take credit for your actions.
Good portrayal of the ignorance and stupidity of the common peasant anon. I like that touch.
Thanks anon. But the main character will not necessarily have to be an idiot: it will depend on the player's choices. You can actually respond to the way the nobles treat you, to which they will react with even more disgust, as you're not accepting your "place". This will result in less quest rewards and form hostilities. It will also have a huge impact in how certain factions look at you as the story progresses, leading to very different outcomes.
