Characters are fun to make. Some people think that making a character is the most fun part of a game. It’s like playing dress-up, but you can change your skin, hair, eyes, ears, and nose like a shapeshifter.
Role-playing games are the most common type of game where characters can be changed. This is because part of the fun of role-playing is making a character your own. Before going on an adventure, you get to choose their gender, race, height, and a lot more.
So here are ten RPGs that we think have great ways to change your character.
3D Dot Game Heroes
It might look like a Zelda-like with fully rendered chunky pixels, but there’s more to it than that. This game is made by the same people who made the Souls series. Players can choose from a number of fully rendered hero characters with their own class styles, or they can use a builder to make their own.
To put it simply, if they can imagine it, they can do it. People who like Lego or Minecraft will have a blast making their own blocky characters and animations for them. It’s a skill you have to learn, but it’s a skill that’s surprisingly satisfying.
Don’t be fooled by the “free-to-play” sticker; Warframe is one of the most fun and satisfying action games you can play right now. Even though you might have to grind a lot to get new Warframes and weapons, this ARPG has a lot of customization options that are quite impressive. It all comes down to how you like to play.
Is it better to be a sci-fi ninja with a deadly blade, a smart archer, or a class-blending acrobat? Combat is fun and flexible, and the graphics and choices are more than enough to keep even the most picky players busy for a long time. And that doesn’t even include the fact that you can get custom paint jobs.
The Diablo series might not have a lot of ways to change how you look, but Diablo III is the best game in the series for changing how you look, what weapons you use, and how you play. There are seven different characters to choose from in the game, as well as a lot of armour, weapons, upgrades, trinkets, enchantments, colours, shapes, sizes, and loot that can be used to improve the player’s chosen character.
This is one of the games with the most treasures. If a player isn’t happy with their build, all it takes is some grinding and smart thinking to get the monster-killing machine of their dreams.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
Kingdoms of Amalur is the most flexible game when it comes to how you play and what classes you can choose. Players can quickly change classes, weapons, and play styles thanks to a trick that has to do with how the main character’s fate changes. Players can not only choose how their character looks, but also almost every aspect of what makes them tick.
A player might start out as a simple sword-swinging warrior, but since their fate is completely up to them, they can easily go from fighter to battlemage with the right skills and weapons. Weapons, armour, and perks are not tied to a player’s class, so the player can play however they want.
Dragon’s Dogma might rely on several traditional high fantasy tropes, such as the standard warrior, rogue, and mage classes for example, but if there’s one thing it was ahead of its time on, it was the character customization. The player could not only change how their character looked, but they could also choose their own pawn to help them.
When it comes to customising Dragon’s Dogma, you can do anything you can think of. In fact, Souls games wouldn’t pay this much attention to physical details until much later. Even so, it’s still pretty cool to see what the game could do.
Fans have used Fallout 4’s character creator to make celebrities, cartoon characters, and other things. It has been the main character of popular YouTube shows like Monster Factory, in which people try to make the ugliest character they can.
You can choose the character’s hair, eyes, race, and size, and you can also give them burns, scars, and other wounds that they would get in a nuclear wasteland. They also added little details like blemishes on the skin, because we all know that no one has perfect skin after the end of the world. You also get to choose how you and your partner look, which affects how your baby will look.
Final Fantasy XIV
There are a lot of massive multiplayer games that let you make your own character in a role-playing game. In these games, making a character feels even more involved because your character will be walking around in a place where a lot of real people will see them.
There are a lot of interesting races in Final Fantasy XIV, and each one has its own sub-race as well. It’s a dream come true for anyone who wanted to make a character that looked like one from Final Fantasy. As you play the game, you can also get makeovers for your character, which lets you change how they look at any time.
Monster Hunter World
Like Fallout 4, Monster Hunter World is a place where fans can get very creative and make characters that look like celebrities and cartoons. It lets you break gender stereotypes by letting men wear makeup and pigtails if they want to.
Monster Hunter World is different from the other games on this list because you can also change how your cat companion, the palico, looks. Many players have made their palicos look like their own cats. That is really nice.
Star Trek Online Opened New Frontiers In MMORPG Customization
Characters in MMORPGs made by Cryptic Studios are known for how much they can be changed. Star Trek Online stands out even among them. Star Trek Online is often overlooked among online RPGs, but it goes where no other game has gone before in terms of customization. Players can make their own humanoid alien species and make it feel like it belongs in the Star Trek universe.
The player can change the look of their whole starship. There are systems, weapons, bridge stations, and duty officers that can be added to Federation, Romulan, and Klingon starships. As the captain grows and learns, so can the bridge officers, who can go from being green cadets to seasoned professionals.
