Why are there no games in which you can create your own weapon? How difficult would it be for designers to implement it in an RPG with a character creator all ready in it.
Take Soul Calibur V for example. I know it's not an RPG, but it has an amazing character creator, and it's a game all about fighting with weapons. So why can't they add an edited version of the creator where you make your own weapon. They have you pick your weapon style, so why not have you pick you basic weapon (sword, mace, hammer, axe, pistol sword, shield and sword, nunchucks, etc.), and then have you customize different aspects, like the hilt type, blade type, weight, color, etc. They could offer different hilts and stuff with different stats, and then you could edit the length and stuff with sliders. They could even have you pick an elemental attribute to add to it.
That would be amazing, and sure it would take time to render every different type of hilt, blade, etc., but I'd think that a game like that would get so much money in sales, it would be worth it.
