[Rant]Roleplays Based On Books/Movies/TV Shows
My own views are stated below. I don't wish for you to agree with them. Let's not get into a huge argument over this.
Am I the only one who hates roleplays based off of movies, TV shows, and books? I want to hear your thoughts on this topic. My thoughts are posted below.
Unoriginal. All you have done is stolen an already done story to say the least. What's the joy in that? Isn't it much more fun to come up with your own idea and have to roleplay on a brand new idea?
Common Storylines. If you already know the original story, don't you get your ideas from there? Are you inclined to do what a popular character in the book or movie did? Don't you already know what's going to happen?
Hard To Follow Along. What happens if I haven't already seen the movie or read the book? If the storyline is the exact same, how do I know where to start? How do I know what is going on? If I want to join do I have to watch the movie or TV series?
Just Too Many Of Them I would be fine with just one or two. Some movies have really cool ideas and are interesting to play along yourself. BUT when I can't find a good roleplay to join because the first page is dictated by unoriginal content, I get kind of mad. Why don't we just make a new section for these roleplays?
So there are my thoughts. What are yours?
