Why is it that in every RPG the casters can use multiple spells that do many different things while all fighters can do is press the attack button and block?

    Because magic is fricking magic?
    There is a reason why high fantasy settings where your mage can found in your local pub is always the worst.

    Even with a bunch of arbitrary limiters, magic is still broken bullshit.

      So the one way fighters can do more things is become spellcasters with melee weapons and armor?

    That’s wrong. The fighters can often coat their weapons in elements through methods that don’t require magical prowess.

    Idk in many games for wizards it's just
    >(color) projectile x5 different flavors
    >elemental debuff that is in practice dubious at best compared to just spamming projectiles
    >(temporary stun effect that might not do ANYTHING to entire classes of enemies or bosses) x5 different flavors
    >utility that has an equally convenient non-magic analogue

    Because 99% of the time, having all those spells nets you nothing and does nothing while the tried and true sword and board does all you need.

    Mages can use different spells, rogues can use different skills, fighters can use different weapons.

    You must only play WRPGs. JRPGs like Elden Ring have good combat.

    fireball = attack
    why sleep when fireball
    why freeze when fireball
    shield = block
    summoning is gay
    detection is gay
    why silence when fireball
    heal is a cleric spell stop cheating
    teleport is good

    so wizards can do 1 more thing than fighters

    How is it fair that a fighter can switching between using a sword, a spear, an axe, a hammer, a halberd, a bow, a dagger and a sling all while using a shield and wearing heavy armor while a mage can only use a staff and some dinky robes?

    I love the idea of "the indomitable human spirit", I like to think that what makes human special in fantasy world that we have strong willpower, sure we're not the best engineers and blacksmiths like the dwarves or the best mages and archers like the elves, but our will is unbreakable and that's makes humans interesting in fantasy worlds.
