Light or heavy armor?

Recommended Posts

Do you prefer to wear light or heavy armor in video games?

I like light armor. I tend to think the best defense is a good offense. I also don’t like running/moving more slowly because of bulky armor. Plus, I have a hard enough time keeping my inventory weight under control.

As much armor as possible for me. I like to be tanky and not die easily to other players. In the games which I play there isn't a thing like armor weight.

Let's take Skyrim as an example. My preference is light. The heavier the armor total in-game, the harder it is for you to sneak and not get spotted by your opponent. I don't enjoy running more slowly because of heavier armour as in some situations you need to run to avoid death. I have to agree with the original poster, light armour is the way to go. There are more advantages for it over heavier protective clothing.

I tend to go for light armour in the early game as I level up my character. Then, later in the game I experiment with heavy armour to see how good it is in comparison. Hope that makes sense!

I tend to be a heavy armor person.  My favorite build in Skyrim is a heavy armor two handed weapon build.  I like to build HP/Stamina tanks that just go in and crush everything, no sneaking, no fuss, just walk in and wreck.  With that build in Skyrim (once at a certain level of course) I can walk right up to Dragon Priests and crush them in 2-3 hits.  That's not to say I haven't built some light armor stealth characters that are fun as well, my stealth archer is definitely another go to.

I've generally disliked heavy armor, because it makes it easier for enemies to do group ups on myself. Though if I had appropriate weaponry for it, then I can get past the tanky feeling of heavy armor. In games of speed, I love light armor, as it allows me to appear and disappear quickly to confuse my opponents.
