City of Heroes[edit]

It is my belief this game should be removed from the list, due to the same reason WoW was removed. This game allows some furry chars, but is not predominantly a furry game. Otherwise, WoW, STO, Champions Online and more need to be added to this list.

MUCKs != Games[edit]

While furry in nature, sex mucks, roleplaying mucks and forums are not games and so they don't belong in a Wikipedia article about furry games. -FoxMajik (talk) 20:52, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Possible move?[edit]

Since this includes card games, a better place for this article might be 'List of furry games.' Move if you want. Almafeta 23:09, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I agree, it could possibly be moved if some of the games are not roleplaying-type games. --Krishva 02:52, Jun 22, 2005 (UTC)

Links to game websites[edit]

For most of these games, a link to the game website is much more appropriate than a link to an uncreated article about the game. Notable games like FurryMUCK or Werewolf: The Apocalypse I can see having articles for (and articles are already created for these games), but SPR? A short description on this page would suffice for many of these games, along with a link to the game's website. --Krishva 02:52, Jun 22, 2005 (UTC)

Furry role-playing games[edit]

Why is this on role-playing games and not games in general?

I agree, this is absolute egotistical tripe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.97.30.129 (talk) 19:21, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Because the title of the page is "List of furry role-playing games". Nothing stops you signing up and making a list of furry games or list of role-playing games if you think a more general topic would be useful - but nor does that mean the specific topic isn't useful, either. Personally, I feel it's a reasonable distinction. If you consider all games prominently featuring sapient anthropomorphic animal characters to be furry, the number of games in total could be very wide indeed. But that's just my personal view; it might be possible to do it well. GreenReaper (talk) 13:51, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Small quibble about the WoW Reference...[edit]

World of Warcraft allows you, if playing as a druid race, to transform into different animals to perform tasks within the game.

"Druid Race" seems a little bit off the mark, you can do this if you play as a druid class under a druid-capable race, this makes it sound like druid is a race of it's own. Does anyone agree? Iwantanimac 12:27, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

It's mostly an article about furry games. I'm sure anyone who spends the same amount of time playing World of Warcraft that most people do sleeping would probably have a quibble or two about anything anyone said about it. If you're sure you're right, make the edit and cite a source. -FoxMajik (talk) 20:55, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Category?[edit]

Wouldn't this be better suited as a category, rather than a list? That is much more dynamic. -- Kesh 02:01, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps. But you then have to find enough verifiable material on each entry to warrant a full article. This may not be possible (or at least, immediately possible) for some games. It also provides some context and separation between styles without forcing users to navigate a multilevel category hierarchy just to find what they're looking for.

Removal of World of Warcraft from list[edit]

I see no reason to have removed World of Warcraft from the list. The game allows you to play as two anthropomorphic furry races: Tauren, which are anthropomorphic cows and bulls, and (in the next expansion pack, Cataclysm), Worgen, which are human werewolves who can shape shift at will. In addition, it allows you to play as a druid, which enables you to shape shift into animals (bear, lion/panther, seal, cheetah and hawk), as well as shaman, which can also shape shift into an animal (wolf). The person who removed it stated it was removed in the edit because "WOW is so not furry" which I disagree with. These characters were very likely not implemented into the game simply to appeal to furries, but the fact is they are clearly anthropomorphic.

I have added World of Warcraft back into the list. If anyone disagrees with this, feel free to remove it again. --BaronVonYiffington (talk) 14:15, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

A list of furry roleplaying games should be about roleplaying games that are... furry. World of Warcraft is not. Having one character class that has the ability to change into something anthropomorphic doesn't make the entire game furry. That is to say, World of Warcraft is primarily NOT furry, but has minor, circumstantially furry elements.

The first line of the article is "Furry role-playing games are role-playing games that prominently feature anthropomorphic animal characters and consequently are popular within furry fandom."

While WoW may be popular within furry fandom, it is not a consequence of WoW being prominently furry. The same applies to Star Trek Online.

Added STO (Star Trek Online)[edit]

Updated in relation to the new patch where the Caitian species are now a playable character. --Nicholas220191 (talk) 13:11, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
