Is it possible to have proper role playing in video games? If so, how would you like to see it implemented?
Define proper and which system and what kind of game?
When people think of RPG's in video games, they think of either WoW or something similar. However, can a truly worthwhile role playing experience exist in a virtual world?
Not with current software. We can create computerized systems to facilitate humans who want to play RPGs with each other, but it's impossible to get computers to actually act as players or GMs with current technology.
We don't need to have computers to play roles, just create an environment for humans to interact in. Such a game should be easy to create, but how come they don't exist?
Uhhhhh... they already do? MOOs, MUCKs, MUSHes? Not to mention the sort of laughably stymied roleplaying that goes on in WoW and other MMOs. Are you really just looking for a chat room? One with graphics, maybe?
