So i went into DCUO 2 years ago thinking it would be like Skyrim, but instead of being a Dragonborn you get to make a hero/villain in the DC Universe and let him or her go through their own story and interact with the DC characters you love! Boy was i wrong. That game is driven so much by the mmo and the pve/pvp aspect that it completely ignores the lore that it has so much potential for. For the past 2 years (i think its been free to play for that long) ive been trying to get into that game but i suck so bad! so instead of trying to play it as an mmo i would create a character and, because im a nerd, i would give my characters a little origin back story of their own. It's kind of hard to do that because the character customization is so limited. It was hard to make a character that actually made sense according to their power, movement mode, and weapon.
Eventually I came up with Flameboyant Guy! See the play on words their? (; He's power is Fire(obviously), weapons are Hand Blasters, and movement mode is acrobatics. And the little back story for him is that before he got infected by the exobyte from Lex Luthor he was gay. He's pretty much the only character i have but i have loads of more character ideas i can think of for a game with such a limited customization.
So i was just wondering what kind of characters you guys made (actual DC Comic fans), and what are your experiences and thoughts and this game that lacks seriously character development lore? (my opinion anyway)
