5 Reasons Why RPG Worlds Are Dooming Themselves

WC writes: In the fantastical world of gaming, the RPG stands at the forefront of imaginative storytelling and fleshed-out characters set in a world of dream-like ambition. They are often massive in scale and require patience from both the player and the developer. In order to play an RPG, you first have to understand it. The magic isn’t in the smooth graphics, or the innovative battle system, it’s in the player’s ability to perceive the game in a tangible form. As with most RPGs in this era, character customization is vital, even if it merely means a different outfit for an already realized character. The reason being that players are looking for an other-worldly experience where nothing is bound by the chains of reality, where the hero can simply “believe” to save the world, and where any mistake is a reload away from perfection.

But if you take it all away, and look at an RPG from a human point of view, the dream really is solely ambition. The world is flawed, the logic is laughable, and you couldn’t meet one of those characters even if you were to stroll around Hollywood Boulevard. Stripping away all the magic from various RPGs, here is a list as to why RPG worlds are dooming themselves and are just not worth saving – let alone live in.

#3 Animal Cruelty? It's a game if not bizarre creatures than what else would be kill besides Humans? Oh wait that falls under # 4 Law and would be considered murder.
So what exactly are you asking for?

Games are not about logic, they are about fun. :)

Of course Rpg worlds in a human standpoint are well unlivable. We can do all teh cartwheels we want.

I don't understand animal cruelty when people are getting killed in games but when it is an animal, it's like PETA has to stop the game when they need to know it's just a game.

lol uses Skyrim as a featured image, but in the article only uses Final Fantasy images. Stupid article, not worth the read.

Animal cruelty is in every video game, but more so in realistic titles since humans ARE animals. You couldn't pay me to conduct any sort of animal cruelty, but to get rid of it would also mean getting rid of humans in games.

After reading that I'm going to go out of my way to be Antisocial and f**k up every animal I see in the most vicious way I can think of in every RPG I play, all because of this article.

I'm going to play Skyrim, kill someone’s pet and throw it at children.
