Welcome to... the world of gaming, where the birds can swim, where the fishes can fly, where fire freezes when touching cold water, where water burns, where the never-ending fight of good and evil, well... never ends.
In the land of video games, everything was fine, no wars, nothing. Only peaceful button pressing. There were the Atari, Nintendo and Sega. No one expected it. No one thought about it... Until Sega Genesis came along. It was superior to the Classical Nintendo emulation system, and so broke the rules of no overpowering before the time comes. That triggered the most famous of all video game console wars, the Bit wars.
The Bit Wars:
(The 4th gen console wars)
That devastating war had taken a lot of lives of game consoles. Nintendo tried to compete, but only failed, because the Sega Genesis was too strong. Nintendo began weakening. Nintendo eventually invented the Super nintendo: The most successful console of all time. Eventually, Sega Genesis would weaken. Sega tried to keep it alive with various attachments, like the 32x and Sega CD. It was a major failure, and so Sega Genesis bit the dust. Nintendo would go out of this war as the more successful company.
(The 5th gen console wars)
As time was passing, Nintendo was planning on making a CD based add-on to the Super Nintendo, but that project was cancelled because of the arriving of the newer consoles. Sony didn't like the decision of Nintendo, and so made their own console for the 5th gen console wars. From it came out the famous Playstation, the first CD based system that actually was good. In the competition came in Nintendo's N64, and Sega's Saturn. Eventually, Sega would bite the dust first, and N64 because of the fact that it was only a cartridge based console, wasn't as successful as the Playstation. So, The 5th gen console wars won Sony.
(the 6th gen console wars)
When the 6th gen console wars came along, all hell broke lose for Sega. Sega didn't enter this one, and the Sega video game console production died off. Only Sony and Nintendo remained, everyone thought. From the ashes of Sega came Microsoft, and tried to enter the competition with Nintendo and Sony. And so, they made the first xbox, a giant videogame console, which was successful. For Sony and Nintendo came along the Playstation 2 and Gamecube, both very successful as well. But well again, the 6th gen console wars won Sony.
(the 7th gen console wars)
This war was the point when everything went down. The words pixel, polygon and similar disappeared. All the consoles in the 7th gen of consoles are called "next gen consoles", which basically means that Polygons are not visible anymore, and pixels probably too. Now this is where the real fight begins, not between the consoles, but between the video game characters. The Old video game characters uprise against the new ones. And basically, that's where the roleplaying begins... There begin the Video game WARS!
The video game Wars start the same second the "new" games for the Next gen consoles come along. The better graphics, the cooler sound effects, the impossibly-easier control, the more-optional gameplay, everything. The games forgot about the thing that made them popular in the first place... The challenge. Now the older video game character (Basically everything before the 6th gen consoles) uprise against the newer characters. This war is still in progress.
The map of the Video game world. Finally colored, credits go to -Peper- for coloring, and me for little modifications. Please give names of mountains if you go there, caves and etc. Imagine if you were an explorer and exploring the world.
1. No custom systems! This RP uses the systems that'll be explained in a second.
2. Video game characters can't be characters made by the player! No "I'll go with my WoW warrior draenei." That character won't be approved.
3. No immature stuff. This is supposed to be a realistic showing of video-game characters interrogating one-with-another. No "I alonez gan to da Nintenda kontinant and PWNd da houl Balmond klan!" whatsoever.
4. If someone plans to do something huge, ask me first, because we want to keep this RP not being overhauled by wars. Events like that shouldn't be that often.
5. No fighting if not challenged the other player and he says Yes. If there's a war going on, this rule mustn't be used.
Ok, this is the fact why this game should be interesting. It will use a couple of systems (used a couple of systems):
Off character / in character system:
This one's not that rare, actually all of the RPs should have it. This is basically when you're something saying, and when your character's something saying. When you're talking, type in OOC, when you're in character, type in IC. This way, we can know when you're suggesting something, like "this place could be an epic place for a war".
well, since sprites are really popular among people, and are eyecandy, I've added the sprite systems (First used by -peper-). So basically it's what your character is doing right now, and how he looks like when doing it (If you didn't understand this, view the official rp-ing thread, and see how's it used.)
Joining the video-game wars:
Now, if you want to join this epic experience of controlling a video-game character you love, then just write down in the responses the info of it. Basically it should look like this:
Console (Where he/she first started):
Personality (Write down 4 traits):
Is good (just underline the right answer)? Yes / No
Is hero (just underline the right answer)? Hero / Antihero
Is attribute (just underline the right answers (Can underline all 3 if true))?: Powerful / Fast / Intelligent
Add some colors to the text to make it more appealing. Here's an example how it should be done (This is mine entry too btw):
Personality: Hot headed, Genius, Stubborn, Caring
Info: Plok grew up alongside his grandpa on Akrillic, a large island in the region of "Polyesta". Plok's special power lies in the fact that he can launch any of his limbs at will and allow them to damage enemies, once the damage has been done they return to Plok until he decides to attack again. Also within tradition, Plok has numerous power-ups that come in the form of "presents" scattered amongst the majority of places. If Plok locates one of these colorful gifts he is immediately transformed into a more powerful fighting machine for a brief length of time.
Is good: Yes / No
Is hero: Hero / Antihero
Is attribute: Powerful / Fast / Intelligent
People who joined this RP (At least 15 (I think) before we can start, since this is a VIDEO GAME RP, and we ofcourse need a lot of actors, don't we?)

When Jin was a little boy, he was very dependant on his older brother, Ragna, for affection and constantly pestered him to play with him. He saw his sister Saya as an obstacle of getting his brother's attention and constantly bullied her in retaliation. Eventually, Ragna decided to look after the sickly Saya and distanced himself from Jin, thus increasing his jealousy.It was then Terumi Yuuki entered Jin's life and told him about The Black Beast, that it would be born from Ragna, and that he is destined to destroy it. Deciding that his brother must pay for his ignorance, and to get rid of the obstacle between them, Saya, Jin left Terumi to do as he pleased, including burning the church where they stayed and murdering their caretaker. When Ragna arrived, he only watched in shock as Terumi cut off his arm, and kidnapped Saya. Jin later vanished from Ragna's life, and apparently his memory of that incident was blocked off.
Jin was later adopted to the high-esteemed Kisaragi family. With his talents, he rose up in the ranks of the NOL and was given the Nox Nyctores, Yukianesa, but his other siblings never trusted him, thinking that he only got his ranks due to his adoption. Indeed, Jin himself felt completely empty even after being showered with awards and ranks (which included the stopping of the Ikaruga Civil War). When the rumors of the Grim Reaper arose, Jin felt a sudden urge to meet him, which caused him to abandon his post and head to Kagutsuchi to find out about the Reaper.
