What make you choose the magic user in RPGs and MMOs?
>>
I like magic.

Mages have a tendency to go two ways in every game no denying

It's either
a.) they're the most useless/weakest class out of all the classes available
b.) they're the most overpowered class out of all the classes available

I'm a wizard IRL.

What if the magician is flat in the game?

Ass or thighs then.

And it's impossible to don't have neither.
There is such a thing as customization.

They usually have the widest variety of things they can do. DPS spells, AoE spells, control spells like mind manipulation/paralysis/telekinesis, summoning spells. Some have mage aromor spells that let you be super tanky. If you can craft spells you can become super powerful. It's way more fun to disintegrate some chump with lightning than it is to just stab him. Though, if you wanted to, you could probably stab him with magic.

tl;dr magic can be anything and specializing or becoming great at all spells is fun

Magic is fun.

Magic is more interesting thematically to me than a guy with a big sword.
>>
I usually pick priest or paladin

Setting shit on fire is fun.

>>323440916
If they use Fists primarily and don't cast magic at all.

Magic has the highest probability of lolis.

Nothing wrong with being a cool warrior guy but magic classes usually have more gimmicky bullshit that makes them fun to play.

Benevolent deities that wish to inspire the world with hope and love

Yeah, I always choose either sword DPS or magic users.

I like bashing shit up, and also nuking shit up.
>>
>>323440916
Honestly, visual effects. Pretty magic is best magic.

If the magic is ugly or boring then I'll just be generic archer #71352.

>Requires points and a particular spellbook to learn a spell you want
>All spells have a minimum fail rate
>Failing a spellcast hits you with a debuff or worse
>Chant times that leave you vulnerable and your character loses concentration if anything comes into contact with him
>Wearing anything heavier than a bathrobe multiplies the fail rate by at least 5x
>On success spells can still be evaded, blocked, or just plain resisted

Feels like a lot of wasted effort compared to just hitting the bastard
>>
It depends on the game. There are rarely games where magic feels satisfying. My favorite RPG that had a great magic system was probably gothic because you became a fucking unstoppable god. In MMOs I usually pick healer because it's the hardest class to play.
