Games that let you play as your animal
« on: September 01, 2015, 04:29:42 pm »
Anybody enjoy games where you can play as your animal? I only know one game that lets you play as a robot dog but for me any canid will do. I have GBA and N64 emulators on my phone and I have them for two games. Shining Soul 2 and Rampage World Tour. Both allow you to play as wolves. Shining Soul 2 is a hack and slash RPG where you can choose to play as an anthro wolf who uses Freddy Krueger like claws in combat. You dragons might also want to check this one and it's prequel out. Anthro dragons are playable in both.
Rampage is basically a game where you're a giant wolf, ape or lizard wrecking cities, battling the military and devouring humans like tiny fleshy M&Ms. The sequel has you wrecking cities and rescuing your fellow monsters. Halfway through aliens have the poor timing to invade earth during your attack so you chase them into space and start trashing their cities as well.
Meddle not in the affairs of robot dogs for you are crunchy and make an excellent fuel source.

In Elder Scrolls Online and Archeage (when I played AA), I made a cat-folk (Khajiit and Ferrin, respectively) that was white and leopard pattern, with medium length hair. Can't make them cyborgs or blue, but they're close to my main fursona.

Although I named both Quillruke, which is the name of my sergal 'sona. But then Quillruke is the name I use online more often, as some sites have character limits of 4 or more for names.

If anyone remembers Toontown (it closed two years ago), but it was a Disney MMORPG where you could play as "toons" which were anthro animals. I used to play this game so much because it was really fun. It may not be what you're looking for, though, because it was made by Disney, but I still liked it :)

This is a toon
P.S. If you wanna check it out, search "toontown rewritten"

I remember when Disney had a whole commercial on Toon Town that introduced hats

And games like ROBLOX and even Club Penguin had hats at the time of the announcement

Sadly I don't think there are any games that let you play as a kirin. If there were though,  I'd be aaaaaaall up in that!

Even thought Disney made a great game, they began neglecting it after about 6-7 years of updating it regularly. Updates began to be really slow and really meaningless. For instance, the hats: that had nothing to do with gameplay, which was something that had not been updated for about 2 years at that time. So that wouldn't surprise me that Disney would take an idea like hats from other games...

Ōkami, and The legend of Zelda: Twilight princess, are two excellent games that come to mind.
These games may not feature foxes, but I like wolves too, so I enjoy playing them.

Other than those, there's always the Star Fox series which I've played since the first game was released.
Not really a whole lot else (especially involving foxes) that I can think of aside from some of those mmo's with custom characters, and I don't really play the mmo's much.

I should probably point out that the character in Shining Soul 2 is more a generic canid than a straight up wolf. He can look like a dog, wolf or fox depending on the color scheme chosen. I should also point out that since my original post I actually played the original Shining Soul with the dragon. Playing it with a melee character is an exercise in frustration. So if you want a hack and slash RPG that lets you tear stuff up with an axe wielding anthro dragon go for the sequel. The original isn't fit to wipe your butt with.

Pokemon.

Faroe the Linoone
Mynyah the Mightyena
Synaro the Sandslash
Mykhaila the Vulpix
Remigio the Mudkip
Jemeni the Liepard

And plenty of others notable names as well...

But seriously, some of my favorite RP characters started with Pokemon before evolving (in a non-pokemon sense) into their own characters.  Mynyah has seen a good deal of RP action here on Furtopia, actually, and Jemeni will be in the re-boot of Kings and Queens (though she was actually a part of the backstory since the beginning.)

Crap, someone mentioned Okami already, well, I guess it was easy enough.
What everyone's forgetting though, is the sims 3

If I could have ANYTHING in the world, I would like a sandwich.
