>try the SAO online game i found lying around without ever watching the anime
>mfw they all turn into Elves
It hit the trash faster than light
>Want to play something not-human

Why? Because humanity is a fucking wonderful mess.
>That idiot that picks the human because he can't relate to anything else
Faggots like that one I mentioned are the reason we can't have fantasy races in video games anymore. True fantasy races, not some green muscular human with fans.
Orc master race, fuck being a half-orc. Exactly what I'm talking about.
pick humans for a self-insert for romance plots and that's it.
there is no other reason to pick human. You play a game with all of these fantastic creatures and you're picking the most boring one? Really?
Who am I kidding.
Humans, there are next to no interesting races anymore.
Spiders are not sexy or cool, sorry.
>bullshit humanoid with a huge dick
Nah, fuck that, give me something that walks on six legs.
These are people who don't really play games, or only CoD. Again, a true fantasy race wouldn't even have a humanoid form, or at least a basic one. Sadly, everything has to be humanized for anyone to give a shit about them.
It's the fucking bonus feat and the free ability points to put anywhere. No other racials beats those.
Same situation I'm in with shafowrun. Humans start with three extra karma to put anywhere. Unbeatable.
>you will never please her without actually having to crawl in her vagina
In the game that image is from Humans are literally the best at everything.
Its really hard for me to take a hit to character strength sometimes because I like to have strong characters.
>rich as fuck
>never get sick
>You play a game with all of these fantastic creatures
Hold up, we're not going to sit here and call elves and Orcs "fantastic creatures" are we? I'll pick an interesting race when I see one.

What's the other half of the Half-Orc?
Fantasy games need to stop doing this. Making Humans the default race, with all other races getting 'half' human versions of themselves. Where are all the other half-breeds?
Besides the fact that black people are disgusting, I play as a tank and I'm a bottom.
I find that funny considering the etymology of the word itself. The original concept was a human taking the woman of a monster with horns.
In videogames its hard to get every combination programmed in, especially if you take it to the extreme. A fantasy world with only human elf and dwarf mixes doubles the playable races with halfbreeds and who knows how many options if you allow for quarters, eighths. Etc. It's starts to look like an American telling you his geneology; 3/16ths German, 1/4 french, 1/8th Irish, 1/32 Cherokee and so on.
Most races of elves are taller than humans. It's only when you start splitting them up into their sub-races that you find elves that are shorter or stockier than humans. The most common elven race is the stereotypical high elf which is taller than humans.
High elves are typically the most commonly seen elf in most AD&D settings. The reason for the confusion lately has been the homogenization of the races of elves into a singular race which took on the attributes of the most common type of elf in the settings.
>half orcs have bigger cocks than elves
When will this stereotype end?
>make fantasy game
>put humans in it
>you can't play as one
>elves are know for having a high libido and being a sluts/slaves to humans and orcs
what is this meme
A simple surgery would make those elves perfect.
It's not a meme Anon, Elves are just sluts
>Playing D&D with friends
>They all choose the most out there races available
>I choose human
>their faces when
The dirty race traitors.
I always made a gnome illusionist for the utility of size and versatility of cantrips. Wiggling out of dangerous situations when everyone else was fighting for their lives was fun.
>Chubby lil androgynous Goblin
I can dig it
>Skylanders the Mage
Meh, dragon mages might be cool
>Furry Trigger Warning
I think I found out why no one's heard of this game.
>tfw globalization, free trade, television, internet have reduced the differences between the cultures of the various races
>still have to deal with orclivesmatter protesters every day on the way to work at the potions factory
Same as any following playthrough: gnome master race
Most people have shit for imagination and empathy. It is the same thing as 90% of FPS protags being buzzcut dudebros; it is easy for the majority of the public to identify with the character.
Which one do you choose on your first playthrough?
>all these people wanting to consort with inferior species
>desert elf jihadists suicide bombing and murdering everything
Baraka are cool but those little animal guys are the best race in any MMO ever.
Meme race. Exclusively played by hipsters that think they're so cool for playing the fat, hairy midget (think Wario players in Smash)
Exclusively played by autistic people.
Deserve to be genocided
Acceptable unless the person playing is trying to self insert
>just as much heresy as an elf
Get that blasphemous shit out of here
I'm the same but sadly you can't have beast race without furfaggotry these days
Depends of what you mean by beast race though is it just a human with cat ears or full lizardmen?
High Elf > Orc/Half-Orc (Qunari) > Human > > > > > > > > > > Anything Else
>not wanting to purge the planet of every degenerate race that isn't human
Greenskins, knifeears, moneygrubbing cave midgets, pointy-hatted no-good fatasses, animalfuckers, they all will hang on the Day of the Rope.
Full on lizardman. I fucking love weird stuff. In particular, I've always liked the idea of insectoid races, yet they are almost never done, an when they are it's always the same hivemind evil non-playable race bullshit.
Finally someone that understands humanity's superiority over everything.
If you're anything other than human I just assume that you're either a furry or an otherkin roleplayer.
You also probably think that Eragon was a good book you dirt bag.
>unrealistic weebshit art
How about none?
my gaymeter went off the charts with the guy in the left
>I can't stand playing as humans.
Wow, I really like your OC: Strongheart Proudpaw. He was half dragon and half wolf right? Get the fuck out of here with that weak shit, humans #1 with dorfs being an acceptable stand in.
What's the best class and why is it
Once again, everyone wants to have a character to relate to, which is why you have all these grizzled white men as the protagonists of every game. It's a fucking shame, we're missing out on cool fantasy elements in favor of shit like this:
You do realize that the reason why people don't like otherkin and furries is because theyare fucking autistic and try to shove their taste down other people's throats, right? On the exact same way you are doing.
>cool fantasy elements
You just want to fuck monsters.
Female Human Warrior with chaotic based abilities if possible.
2nd playthrough is a holy knight. Any other order is wrong.
I am not shoving, I am educating. Educating people who are wrong.
>using tiny twirly poke sticks
What's wrong, limp dick? Never seen the inside of a gym?
That armor design is perfect.
It'll be easier to gut them and watch their entrails drain out.
In game, they make the other races so ridiculously ugly. In my first play through, I'd rather not have to spend dozens of hours staring at an abomination.
It's always human. Not because it's the best at anything but it's not shit at anything either.
>Retard level INT/CHR
Repeat in some form for every other race.
>not wanting to pump your cock into the willing pussy of a defeated orc maiden into front of her humiliated kin, as you forge a lineage of superhuman offspring.
It's like you hate adventuring or something
There's a ton of Charr on Crystal Desert.
Charr are also best race, just saying. They seem to be the only race that DOES something and has their shit together. Plus their social structure is interesting as hell. As you're treated as an equal no matter what rank or job you have, and treated as important as the top brass.
>tfw played baraka mage in Tera
>tfw played goblin hunter and mage in wow
Have no idea why this two unpopular. They cool as fuck in their own way each.
Nigga, I want to play as a cool dragonkin who can fly and utilize fire as an attack along with having fire resistance, or a powerful orc that can break down landmasses with his powerful girth. I hate how fantasy settings are now a thinly veiled harem for some boring human to fuck all and everything.
You can't even mention elves and orcs without some faggot posting that stupid comic.
Hairy, stout, short humanoids that often live in vast underground fortresses in mountains, forging great and powerful weapons, armor, trinkets, dildos, etc. naturally enchanted through their secret blacksmithing methods. Are also always drunk and never sober.
Reminds me of the random DnD games I used to join. Like we would defeat a group of adventurers/peasants and I'd say Strength check: I want to rape the elf. Everyone in the party would give me that look. Even better when there's the obligitory hambeast at the table playing a healer or someshit. I'd then keep going with it until people start to get fed up/quit.
I...I want to play a Moth bases healer who uses dust to heal and attack.
Always pick the classes with the lewdest/smallest panties. You'll never go wrong.
God bless you Anon.
I'd love more creative Fey creatures in games, I'd even love some playable ones. I'm a little Age of Wonders 3 isn't getting anymore updates, would have loved to see a Fey culture spring up from that other then Fairies and Unicorns hanging out in a meadow.
Japanese perverts and weeb perverts
Elves are canonically beautiful and either pure or arrogant in pretty much every universe so cvcks have a fetish for watching them get violated, particularly by orcs
It's pathetic and gross
Yes. What the fuck else did you think dorf referred to?
bored as hell
games related to this topic? anything works really
dorf is just a really affectionate way to refer to dorfs.
nelfs are Night Elves from warcraft.
Half-Orc = Love & Life
Fortune Summoners. You play as a loli warrior who goes around with her two cute loli spell-casting friends and beat the shit out of inferior monster people.
Humanity is the greatest species on the planet and filthy species traitors like you should be the first to burn in the sacrificial pyres.
Speaking of, who are the best elves and why are they Dunmer?
>games related to this topic?
You know ... I could really go for an open-world knight-em-up.
Riding round on a steed, saving Princesses and slaying dragons and such. Do good and become Paladin, do bad and be Dark Knight or whatever.
Sore lack of sword-and-shield games right now i think
It's a popular pastime, yes.
>mfw Donathal Troth will make the Westerlands great again
Half-Orc is the master race.
They're just the prime physical specimens on that list, and therefore just have a higher ceiling for overall perfection.
A Half-Orc with an ideal body for his race with a genius intellect is just superior to an Elf with an ideal body for his race with a genius intellect.
An exceptional Half-Orc may be rare, but he'll be the true best creature to ever walk the earth.
>offspring of one that consorts with beasts
Make way for the one true onion knight, peasants
>elder God tier
>above ground tier
Anytime of elf
Both are unholy freaks but I would tolerate them if they were devoted to the cause.
Human, so i can impregnate elves, take responsibility, and create the perfect race.
I always thought it was the opposite Elves rarely have sex and produce few offspring whereas humans fuck like rabbits and as result eventually overtake elves as the dominant species.
Amen to that brother,
>They got rock solid composition

Final answer: 3 Honorable Kabuto Samurai
Bards really are the scum of fantasy universes. Who cheats on the ultimate waifu?
dragons are the best
>tfw when I played a Charr in gw2 and a goblin priest in WoW
Although to be fair I chose them based on the lore behind them over their actual appearance.
>No full Orc option
I guess half-orc then.
I'd be tempted to choose human first though, to see if the world reacts to you in a negative way on the second playthrough as a half-orc.
I doubt Id play an MMO with such bland races in the first place.
Going to raise an army rather than be stuck with a party of 3 + my worthless ass. Can swap out the detective for the Dwarven Mechanic but it's a pretty even split on their usefulness.
General leads, Psion uses his powers for information and predicting the enemy, Detective infiltrates and figures out the weak points in whatever I'm fighting.
Beast race. Every time.
If there's more than one, the biggest and strongest one.
If robots are an option as well, they take priority.
I go for elves every time. Feed me your hatred, /v/, your red indignation.
>never an aquatic race to play as
Dragon Quest X is all I can think of, and it's never coming to the West
The biggest problem with the image is that females cannot be paladins.
>wanting to play as the "muh one with nature holier than thou superiority complex at least I'm prettier than humans" race
Does there even exist a game where I can uphold the holy quest to purge the world of elves? You guys are all talk and no games.
>wanting to be a treehugging, knife-eared fuccboi
It's SO great having my petite, firm elf ass get plowed hard by every other race's more masculine, manly-man, 16-inch dicks.
Have you ever actually played it though? It's quite fun. Comparable to the dick-ass thief in annoying the other players.
Sanzo, I believe. Here's his pixiv, and there's also someone on tumblr that translates his stuff.
Disgusting knife ears
>skilled in magic
Practices DARK ARTS which are abominations in the eyes of the holy ones
>5 Character Races No One is Playing in MMORPGs
>Only lists 4
What is the 5th?
Also in defense of Goblins, they were added to the game after it had been live for six years already. While Worgen are more popular, they are Werewolves. Pandaren were added after the game was live for 8 years and are also extremely rare.
WoW race popularity is in order:
Interestingly enough the ONLY race that has more female characters than male is Draenei. Blood Elf and Night Elf come close but have around a 55/45 split. All the other races are predominantly male characters.
I don't play as an elf because elves are pretentious dickbags who feel above everyone else just because they're elves. Seriously, I tried to be nice to the elves in the Witcher, and then they robbed a bank and killed a bunch of people. I tried to be nice to the elves in Skyrim, and they tried to take me prisoner and put my country in a civil war. I try to give the elves the benefit of the doubt in The Hobbit, and they take all of my dwarfs as prisoners for getting lost in the woods. Elves are written as faggots in almost every universe, but if they weren't I MIGHT be able to find a reason to like them.
in your pic? gnome, no question
otherwise, I follow a general rule of picking the race with the most fuccboi males, unless that race happens to be nature worshippers, in which case I'll pick some other race that isn't human or orc
always female though
>being embarrassed about living in the greatest country on earth
Not in the slightest, elf lover. Don't you have some tree hugging to be doing or some cock to be sucking?
Great education, health care, social security and safe streets.
Oh and the culture. Dear lord, the culture. Exquisite. With enough barbecue sauce and glitter on top, a big turd doesn't taste that bad, hm?
Sorry, I don't remember what it was called.
I always tend to go with Half-elves or dwarves depending on the setting.
>human as jack of all trades
>not having a diverse party with each character being a master at something
Eh, if it's well done I don't give a shit. You could make a human warrior that starts out with no memory of who and where he is but you can develop him well enough so that he turns into an interesting character.
>jealous foreigners feel need to berate clearly superior countries so their shithole doesn't look so bad.
>Short and fat mountain human
>Treehugging human with pointy ears
>Annoying small human with gadgets
>Green uncultured brute human
>Human with magical gimmick
Every other race is just human with an overcentralized flair.
The best help you can give an elf is a quick death.
>every other race has some super gimmick
>humans still rule 90% of the game's world
humans are objectively the superior race simply because they are always cast as the most pragmatic of all the races
oh comon anon , elves are nearly always the mary sue race
they're in touch with nature , know things that humans have forgotten that advance the plot and are often much more powerful than the average human
most of the time you're meant to sympatize with them
>use anything because jack of all trades
>elves live in trees
>uses bows and arrows
>orcs are big and strong
>uses maces and hammers that compliment their strength
>gnomes are small and physically inferior
>use their wit to build weaponry like guns that don't rely on physical adeptness
>dwarves live in mines and tunnels
>don't use spears
Dwarves are obviously lacking common sense.
>playing anything other than human
I wish games would just cut the Halfie bullshit and let me play a full Orc.
Also Gnomes and Halfings add nothing to a fucking settingm I instantly think less of any game or setting that features them.
goddamn those are good.
do people make these professionally or is it just people with way too much time/artistic skill
What are you doing to me
Beta cuck male
Lorefag, homosexual, Weeb
>Orc, Troll, brute
Moradin is proud of you
Not exactly what you're looking for, but in Overlord, you're stomping on elves because of what miserable faggots they are.
You can be the hero of the human villagers in that game.
Also, you could play Warcraft III skirmish and set all non-human races as hostiles.
Seriously though, RPGs never to come up with more races, it's always Human,Elf,Orc, dwarf and halfling.
>motivated by faith, spirituality, greed, loyality, altruism, family, love, idealism, curiosity, honor, independence, lust for power, social status, fear, hate, stupidity, racism, venturism, awe, friendship, capitalism, socialism, communism, pragmatism or philosophy
>motivated by lust for gold and gems
>look up image on Gelbooru
>no can't find it because it didn't have the 'elf' tag
Depends on the aesthetic customization for each race. I generally play the same character in every game, and that character has a general way he looks.
>Game has playable Elves
>No facial hair
Where did this stereotype come from?
Regardless, facial hair is generally considered more attractive to the male perspective than the female. Why do men who are attracted to men try and make themselves look more feminine? I can't understand this thought process.
In these types of games I choose human almost always. Sometimes I may go elf if theyre the shorter kind of elf not the tall kind but, human is my choice.
