It can be done well, yes, I agree. But it never is. Very rarely is it handled tastefully and respectfully, it's often just shoehorned in and forced. Depression/addiction/a broken family... all of that is fine, it can be used for character development and depth, but my god please. Don't make it the only thing the character has!

This is some good venting we're doing.

Gets to the point you unintentionally cringe when it pops up. For shame.

Also agreed.

It gets brought up in every IC post they make to make it extra repetitive and annoying. And even leaks into OOC conversations as they just continue trying to push it further, and further as something truly horrible that we should all be taking note of every breathing moment.


I completely forgot about the OOC leakage, ugh, pls no.

Yes, yes, yes. This so hard. I write a lot of fluffy slice of life RPs(don't @me), and so so many people write long, edgy, over the top, and angsty backstories. I've done it before myself, sure, but people will make it like the entire focal point of their character.

Like, there is nothing to this character except their depressing backstory because everyone looks at roleplaying as a way to drink an espresso depresso.

You just don't understand their paaaaaaaaaiiiin /s

It just gets so old so quick...worst part is, a tragic backstory can be used well. It can add some depth to a character, provide some motives, too. But no, this sort of character prefers to just be 2edgy4u.
So when I see faceclaims like this, or this, or this, combined with descriptions of rugged individualism and a steely exterior hiding a secret heart of gold meant only for those special someones, I'm noping out hard because I'm not interested in heroes trying too hard to look bad. But I'm all over the inverse, a genuinely bad guy whose vanity compels him sometimes to follow the rules.

>sees Aragorn

In all seriousness, one trope I'd love to see die is the angsty, dark, disproportionate backstory of this 'tragic' character that does nothing but talk about it constantly. Like...I understand backstories shape characters but at the same time you know they do it to rack up sympathy points and have an excuse to wangst about it constantly.

Fighting games are absolutely all personal preference. Try everything out and decide for yourself. That being said, absolutely under no circumstances ever use an Xbox controller. The dpad is really bad... I guess it might work for SC since it's not as input heavy and you can use the analog stick.

My hands are on the smaller side so I've stuck with PS3/PS4 controllers for a long time. Probably the major reason I've only ever owned Sony consoles until recently.

A lot of PC games these days have controller integration so you can plug and play or at the very least click a few things to make Steam recognize the controller inputs.

The only actual game I played religiously on PC once I got it was FFXIV and I ended up using my PS4 controller for that.

@HeroAny fighting game is better with a controller, hands down.

For fighting games it's:

Fight stick > Controller > Keyboard

I always wondered how people did it. PC gaming in general is pretty new to me so I usually have no clue what to do with anything. Love it to death, though.
@Heroface me in Soul Calibur

Soon, once my commission check comes around that's one of the first games I plan on getting.

Also stupid question but it's the first time I'll be playing a fighting game on a console, do you find it easier or harder to play on a keyboard vs a controller?
Ready to rumble!
