What I usually play as in pole playing games are rogues. This is mainly because in my personal opinion rogues are the best all around characters in many role playing games. Rogues can fight enemies in one on one combat or they can sneak around and flank them to do a surprise attack, they'll also have long range attacks and weaponry like bows and crossbows. And in some games they are the class that can accel in lock picking to open restricted doors and chests.
Plus rogues remind me of ninjas and ninjas are always awesome!

Whenever I play role playing games I usually pick the mage class. I really like picking the mage class because they have a wide variety of skills that they can learn. Such skills as Blood Mage or Spirit Healer skills (depending on the game). Not only do they have a variety but some can cast healing which comes in handy throughout the game. Some mages also have the ability to "buff" up characters such as your character or your party. Team work is the most important part in many RPGs.

For most MMORPG's I usually play an archer/hunter/ranger, elf or half-elf, and both male and female. I RP them as brother and sister. I like the hunter for several different reason, but mostly for ranged combat. The abilities to track and use pets are also good benefits. Unfortunately not every game is set up the same way so a pet may not be an option. I would love to see DA allow pets as an option for hunters, but that doesn't stop me from playing one.

I like to play as the support character.
My effect on the flow of battle is rarely direct or obvious. While the tanks and dps are on the front lines, engaging the enemies directly, I get to sit comfortably in the back row watching over everything. Making sure everyone else is being the best they can be. I get to humbly enjoy the quiet satisfaction of knowing that while I may not get much attention or praise, I actually have a greater impact on the outcome of the war compared to any other individual.

When playing roleplaying games, I usually like to play a holy knight class such as a Paladin. As a Paladin, I like playing the good guy who is influenced my heroism, valor, and honor and does his best to protect the good, innocent civilians from the forces of evil.. I also like playing such a character who likes to vanquish evil by getting into their faces with a good sword and shield. I also like using healing magic to help keep me alive and tip the balance of power in my favor in tough battles. I also enjoy protecting my friends too as the first line of defense and doing all I can to make sure nothing breaks through.

Mage. for the fact that i like magic stuff, and when i was a child i used to be a mage when roleplaying with my friends, family etc and yes i am talking about real life, my first playthrough was with a mage. Mage FTW

I like to play more of the range type. I do not get in your face smashing you with a sword, but instead peck you off with an arrow, or maybe even a spell, before you know what hit you. I go more towards the good side because there is already so much bad in the world, that I try to be a shining light of hope for people I interact with. I am the person who supports my companions, but is not afraid to stop them from doing something. Companions may seem to do stuff and think it is right(Fenris and his sister), but they will have a deep sense of regret later, even if they do not say it.

Normally I like to play the rouge, they tend to play more to my style and I like the theft abilities most have.
- 2:58pm EDT - October 6th, 2011
i enjoy a spellcaster, and a damage deal at that. nothing is more powerful, i love honing my skills an screwing around to make the most powerful combination to deal it to enemies. it's just fun that way

I would play as a rogue usually because they can both utilize in long range w/ a bow and short, one on one combat with daggers. Plus they are stealthy and generally, to me, have a lot more freedom than any warrior or mage or etc. class. While I like the other classes as well, the rogue tops it off as the best and the one I enjoy playing the most in rpgs.

When it comes to role playing games, I\'m happy to play as anything that isn\'t an emo androgynous adolescent with a ludicrous character design and the most impractical hair style of all time. Also, a weapon that isn\'t utterly ridiculous is a plus. But, if I get to pick a character class I\'m almost always a rogue. Speed, skills designed to cause as much damage as possible while staying out of harms way, and the ability to steal and/or skills that increase the frequency or value of enemy drops are all beautiful things in a game.

I like to play warrior types. I love the versitility that lets you be a big hitter in the group or to be a tank type that soaks up all the damage. Being able to run into the fight and bash peoples heads in just gives me a great feeling. Sword & Board all the way.
- 5:08pm EDT - October 6th, 2011
I love to play as the knight simply because you are in the front line of the action and it is probably the easiest to use.
- 5:51pm EDT - October 6th, 2011
the rogue or assassin is the best all around character to play as. whether male or female it doesn't matter, the benifits are generally the same. you tend to have the best sneak skills close quarters hand to hand combat or ranged skills. let us not forget the lockpicking abilities. how many times do we find ourselves in the room with the one door we need to get through and no keys? oh no! everyone else is dead and I am the only one left alive. Oh looky here I can pick the lock!!! Hey those locked treasure chests sure are nice to take a look at too! so whether you want to be sneaky or just down right fighting dirty, the rogue or assassin is the pick for you!!

when i play a role playing game i am a mage because i have a unquenchable thrist for power and no other class has the strength that the mages do with their vast amounts of devastaing spells like firestorm in demons' souls' and ultima and holy in final fantasy MAGE FTW.

First choice would be mage ... there is just something about setting stuff on fire!
If not a mage i tend to chose a supporting class preferable a healer (usually in MMO games) since DPS always get whines about their stats in example pyro mages in world of warcraft are awesome in my humble opionion but since they rely on procs and most fights dont take long enough for it to proc loads of people strongly (verbaly) prefer arcane or frost mage.Healers might not get the recognition they strongly deserve but at least they dont get much of the whining either. For kicks and fun a healer can grab and drop aggro on whiners and heal themselfs and the rest of the party which is always a welcome way to make your point or punish ninja's.
I always play female characters mainly because specially in this day and age they look attractive not in a i want to tap that kind of way but but certainly more pleasant to look at then some huge bulky male knight.
Sadly this promotion is once more for NA only ... weird enough since PSN is fairly region free and emails with vouchers do get delivered here!

I typically play as Rogues or Rogue-like characters. Their stats are usually balanced to the point you can specialize in more diverse abilities compared to other classes. The main draw for me, though, is the combination of stealth, high dps, and crowd control abilites. I'm a strategist at heart and my strategic playstyle bleeds into just about any game genre. This collection allows me to view the battlefield, assess the situation, and manage it how I see fit with the skills I have. Dragon Age is a perfect example of this. I would go into a battlefiled, disarm all the traps, take note of the major enemies, and set my strategy up according (all while stealthed). With other classes, I'm sure I could go in with reckless abandon and most likely come out a victor on the other side, but whats better than a well thought out decisive victory?

While many - and even I - appreciate the mage and rogue classes, I have a love for the warrior class. The warrior has noble roots, going back to the very beginning of civilization when men were called out to fight and defend their homes. The ability to lead and command, meanwhile dishing out massive damage, has always been one of my favorite things about warriors. Be the warrior a tank or defender, they have the ability to energize a battle and provide assistance to weaker party members. They are both the lead and the supporting cast. Warriors are known for strength, courage, and the ability to turn the tide of a battle. That is why I love warriors.

Char build and physical attributes:
I believe a character that majors in ranged attacks and agility and minors in magic is the smartest choice for the first paly through, that is if the game allows for deep customization and gives you the choice to be sneaky. Although if a game has great options for char building and customizing I always go with unusual builds, not always a smart move but it does allow for creativity fun.
On the morality and Good vs. Evil choices:
In games like mass effect where your actions and decisions have real effect and where you grow to love and hate your allies and enemies I really give thought to what I am about to do and how it might come to haunt or greet me in the future, but in games like oblivion or fallout (both great games) I feel like the whole thing is a farce and the world a comical play I just wing it or play selfishly.
- 4:56pm EDT - October 7th, 2011
I start with the most complex one-- usually mages-- and then I play all of them. It\'s because I appreciate the balance in a system, or the lack thereof.
