Because running around on gm_atomic and pretending to be some wastelander wandering the wastes is fun. And then getting your ass kicked by some asshole who says “LOLL I R RPING BROTHERHUD OF STEAL SO I KIK UR AS CUZ I GOT GOOD ARMOR” and then when you respawn you circlejerk with more people around some guy saying “OMG NICE VIP ARMOR” The “srs rp!!1!1” servers are almost never fun. They remove your imagination, they remove the ability to build things, they remove your creativity, they expect you to just run around and have fun with text. If I wanted a good story, I’d read a book. I wouldn’t get frustrated at a book and at least the storyline in a book fits together. Plus, on these serious RP servers, new people tend to be some boring ass citizens while the regulars and VIP’s are almost always metropolice, NCR, Caesar’s Legion, Brotherhood of Steel, super robots, or whatever, and they tend to be better than you in every way and tell you how to RP.
Garry’s Mod Tower used to be fun when people actually used the theater. Now it’s just 25 people jumping around, showing off their c00l stuff, and waiting for their minigame to begin.
NoxiousNet Zombie Survival is pretty fun but there are a lot of griefers/idiots who mess the game up.
PERP is basically Weed RP. Everything revolves around the maurijuana growing. You can buy seeds to plant your weed, and you can buy a gun to defend the weed while it grows, and you can buy furniture to help defend the weed, and police officers and enemy gang members try to take your weed, and paramedics are for reviving the police officers and gang members when they die, and firefighters are for extinguishing your house when enemy gang members try to burn it to kill you and destroy the weed, and cars are for driving to your house to defend your weed.
Deathrun is boring. Run, die, wait. If you’re a death, you just wait and press buttons when people try to jump through the traps.
Every. fucking. darkrp. server. runs. fucking. downshit or evoshitty. Can’t find a good English server that runs a good map like townsend_v1p. The best servers I’ve found that run good maps and don’t have shitty jobs like “thief” or “superman” for DarkRP are French.
Someone needs to revive something like gmod parkour, pirate ship wars, or gmod survival ( the gmod.biz survival is shit )
