Depends hugely on the game. One of the reasons I love Dragon Age: Origins is because you can be all rolls all the time. I also love the crowd control (mages) in that game, because freezing motherfuckers and making giant flaming grease pits and stuff is cool. I also loved playing a rogue because of the amount of DPS. I generally don't enjoy tanking because I feel like games make generating threat a fucking pain.
In MMOs and other class-based multiplayer RPGs I typically like playing ranged DPS, specifically magic-oriented characters . I enjoy healing as well.
In single-player RPGs I just go with some sort of melee because in most single-player RPGs anything else is oftentimes a pain in the ass in the early stages. Though I will say that I started playing Skyrim as a magic user recently and that's easily the most fun way to play that game.
I picked B (Ranged DPS) but it really depends on the situation. If I'm playing an RPG or an MMO and I don't plan on interacting or playing with anyone else then I'll either play a Tank or a DPS class. If I have party members or I'm in an MMO where I want to interact and play with a lot of people then I'll play a healer type of character. A Mage like character basically.
I hate what the holy trinity has done to RPGs and character building, but it really depends on the occasion. I mean, if we're talking League of Legends I'm a big fan of either pure nuke casters or tanky-DPS melee fighters, but if we're talking in a generic sense I guess rogue-types with their backstabbing ways.
Hmm... tough question. I picked healer, but the more I think about it the more I can enjoy all sorts of roles. I think my favorites are split between healer and archer type classes, however I'm generally not a fan of archers with pets (ie hunters in WoW). I also enjoy tanking quite a bit as well, as there's a great sense of control and leadership that tends to inherently come with that position (eg. "I'm the one that's rushing in there first, so I'm leading this group"). Offensive magic classes are the ones I tend to avoid the most, but even then there have been some exceptions to the rule.
So in conclusion I am completely indecisive!
I don't play MMOs, but in single-player RPGs, I generally play up-close DPS characters. I don't mind playing mage-types either, but I generally like to avoid anything that's ranged -- I like close-quarters combat and don't like to worry about aiming or being stealthy.
The Holy Spirit.
Not a religious fervor thing, the joke was necessary.
I entered the thread expecting it to be the second or third reply. Of course, someone had to make it.
Oh, and I like being the Healer. My holy paladin back when I played WoW was pretty righteous. I had a Druid, too that I wanted to become a Tank, but he wound up being a healer in group instances more often than not. I didn't mind too much but I wasn't as confident as a Resto-Druid. Holy Pallys are all about burst healing while Resto-Druids are more about HOTs.
