Massive Race Selection
was transplanted from Loads and Loads of Races
. That trope was changed because it was labeled as a medium-specific trope, but is most definitely not medium-specific, and the majority of examples were not from games. See its thread: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=1325658396002427600
Is there a trope where game has a lot of races, but all but 1-2 are unplayable or you can't choose your race at all?
Theoretically, those would fall under the new version of Loads and Loads of Races
. Practically, including game examples in there might be problematic.
The description needs to be tweaked, and the examples need to be cleaned, the trope's otherwise fine.
We should add to the description that this only applies when race is part of the choices you make in character creation (and, of course, this limits the trope to games with character creation).
I've been trying for a while to find people who can help write the Massive Race Selection
description and sort examples, because I just... don't know video games. At all.
I initially altered the original Loads and Loads of Races
description specifically to refer to character-creation, but I was told that this excluded Strategy Games
. I don't know what those are, and never found anyone who knows what they are to write a better trope description, resulting in the placeholder description you see now.
As for examples... yeah. They need
sorting and cleaning. I did my best to sort the examples, but I don't know anything about video games. This page needs people familiar with gaming to sort examples, and check each example to make sure it is 1.
a game and 2.
an example in which all those races are playable
If you know anything about video games, please
help rewrite the description and fix up the examples.
