Ive actually always wondered why in a Fprpg(first person rpg) or a first person view in an MMO, that they cant or wont render the hands and/or weapons. Thats my big reason for not liking most first person rpg games. They can do it in Fps games. maybe because there is too much variety in weapons? /shrug
You really haven't played many, have you?
10, 15 of them maybe. cant remember as ive been gaming for over 30 years, mostly rpgs.
But its somethign thats kept me from those kinds of games.
BUT, I have to admit, after playing Legend of Grimrock, its not such a turn off anymore for sure.(that and i think nostaliga is drawing me back to the days of real stories and fun combat) But then again, that game also puts a good amt of emphasis on lighing, shadows, and atmosphere so i can deal with not seeing weapons on a great game.
But now that im writing this ive come to realize that you may be commenting because there are more games where they DO show weapons, so other than being vauge, maybe cluing me it to them instead.
either way, instead of assuming i havent been playing these games, why not try and educate me.
LOVE your avatar btw, if you havent checked out FotNS kens rage, you should. Its like living FotNS. (my favorite anime, by far, had the original japanese language version of the movie on vhs)
