it isnt. This place is filled to the brim with just-out-of-highschool nerds who are still obsessed with not being edgelords

it's ironic really

Only depressed shitters hate edgy shit.

It's hard to take it serious, even in fairly non-serious games. There's basically no setting where edgy characters doesn't become comical by accident.

Imagine playing a CoD game and before you sneak up to a Nazi you use your hidden American Colt Action Army Knife to stab him you whisper "Pss, nothing persona, G√ľnter" and proceed to kick him forward watching his head explode.

If you cringed or smiled reading that you know what I mean.

All those characters always look like some manlet power fantasies of the worst kind.

Proper characters are based on Schwarzenegger and Stallone. The people making Contra understood that.

Chuuni edgy characters are the best, especially when someone breaks their edge and they get all flustered and shit.

There is a limit and It is supposed to have some balance. When edgy is the ONLY trait, It is ridiculous (looking at you, Donte)

The idea that "being mature = dark, violent, Filled with fanservice" games is stupid and overused.

Because "edgy" is a pejorative term.
If you label something as "edgy" then you are automatically saying that it's doing something wrong, otherwise you'd choose a different word. It's like asking "Why does stinky mean that it smells bad?".

Because it shows a lack of concern with being a normal human, and generally your edgy characters like to talk about how they're so badass, and the don't care about anyone, and it's retarded shit.

You faggots do care, that's why you make "Why don't the wimenz luv meh??!!!?! :,(" posts.

Honestly being edgy 99% of the time = being immature. No fucntioning adult in the world thinks that a character who always wears all black and watched his entire family get killed/killed them, constantly complains about how much life sucks, constant carries on about being sociopathic, and is a badass via no training. (Or thinks they are)

Having any sort of power comes with a price, I think this is my main issue with these fagatrons. I just ran four miles yesterday with my other Poolees and it fucking sucked. I wanted to quit by the end of mile two. But I kept going, not to look cool, or impress anyone, but to better myself. Because I know there self-improvement is hard. There's a reason most people shudder at the thought of running a mile, even though Humans are the best long distance running in the animal kingdom. And then these edgy faggots are written to be uber powerful out of nowhere, or you bitches in real life go swing a knockoff katana around in your mom's back yard every once in a while, and then you talk about how much of a badass you'd be in the zombie apocalypse. But guesss what" You'd fucking die. I can't stand these faggots who are so out of touch with reality.

Everyone who is saying not liking edgy characters is immature:

I fuckig love nonsensical english in my japanese animes.

And edgy is fine as long as you are not taking it seriously. If you do, of course it's going to be cringy.
>>
It's boring. The same thing goes for playing a goody two-shoes.

I can't tell you how many times in PnP I'd enter a tavern to start the story and everyone else is shoved into the darkest 4 corners trying to out brood one another and decided who has more family members dead in the most tragic of ways. Same goes for good characters who want to stop our quest to save the world to interfere with domestic abuse or something similar. They want to talk it out while i'd rather roll to kill the guy and move on problem solved.

The same philosophy applies to video games. Edgy, good no matter what archetype a character you make or is made portrays it can be done correctly it just rather is. People need to learn how to be more subtle about the archetypes and honestly that would make for better characters, story, setting everything overall.

That's why I generally play sarcastic characters. It's why I'm sarcastic that's important. You can hide a myriad of emotions under sarcasm. You also can with the other emotions as well.

Probably the "Half-Lycan" who was mind controlled into having relations with his sister. He eventerually teared the throat out of the wizard who had been his father. He started out as your typical ranger but decided he want to fiat his character into a Ranger/Druid Hybrid since he had been living out in a cave alone where we found him conviently right outside the starting tavern and the DM allowed it on the condition he'd roll harder which you can guess how that was taken. he also wore the face of his father as a reminder "every time he looked in a shallow pond to introspect" direct quote. he tried begging the DM also to let the face imbue him with some of his fathers powers which was denied.

I was playing Sir Tetchury Valiance, a Paladin with a penchant for kleptomania. basically a typical paladin in every way but I would often be compulsed to steal the most mundane things. he would FLIP every time I'd steal something and how disgusting it was.

Eventually after a few sessions of this between him judging everyone for their shortcomings, begging the DM for wizard powers, and stopping to brood every time we came across water. I decided enough was enough and accused him of necromancy on the grounds of wearing his Dad's flesh. I rolled Diplomacy to convince the townspeople to mob him while the party helped. I took out a small vanity mirro I had taken from the last town and held it up to him and said "On more for old times sake." thn we started yelling his sister's name and how good his big lycan member felt. A little childish at the end but worth it

Well ex-paladin really. The rules were pretty lax in that respect seeing as how leather face became a druid/ranger. Tetchury was kicked from the from the order for obvious stealing but still acted like he was a vlaiantknight and all that. Think if Gaston was trying to be a Paladin. he was a bumbling idiot trying to portray the air and grace of an actual Paladin. I made sure I was pretty gimped when it came to holy spells but still knew some turn undead and was a pretty capable fighter.

How exactly does one define edgy on /v/?

What makes a game edgy, and what makes a game that looks edgy not edgy, if it has all the workings of a game that's otherwise edgy? Like if a game has lots of blood, black is a prominent color, a murderous emo MC, and metal BGM?
