I have never understood the desire to play as a non-human race.

It strikes me as pathetic, silly and attention seeking especially if it’s something truly ludicrous.

I have never understood the desire to play as a human outside narcissistic self-insertion. The vast majority of books, stories, films, comics, video games, etc are all about humans to begin with and rarely if ever try to even attempt exploring any other concept or point of view.

How can you even conceive of a non-human point of view? Is the “machine desire” that Deleuze spike of?

Fantasy races are boring because they literally are just humanoid primates (even if their lore says otherwise) and engage in primate social behaviors albeit occasionally exaggerated. There are few works of fiction that convincingly speculate on what non-human sentience would or could be like. But yes dear redditor explain to me how truly interesting and insightful playing as a mongol orc is... lol

But yeah, I made a mistake making this thread. I forgot that the people on /tg/ are exceedingly stupid and their stupidity matched only by their arrogance. Oh well

The no game tourists do not understand the simply joys of pretending to be something you aren't. Yes, you should start off with what you know to get a feel for things, how you like to play your fun little game of pretend with rules and dice. After you find your style, spread out, try something new. Imagine being a character in a fictional world, rather than just self inserting.

I could have played Defective as a human, but I like playing horrifying abominations with hearts of gold, and xenomorphs are awesome.

The edgelording is saved for the enemies. I do not find brutalizing civilians amusing, I much prefer to horribly maim, murder, and massacre those who start the hostilities.
