Family Guy MMO character creator exists

The Family Guy MMO character creator has been launched. Eventually there will be an entire game to go with it - a “free-to-play, browser-based, 3D multiplayer game” available sometime later this year.

To use the creator, you'll have to register an online account for the game, which takes about three minutes, a willingness to believe they won't share your personal information, and an email address. After registering and creating your character you won't be able to do anything with them, but they'll be ready for you when the game launches.

Above: Our first Family Guy character. We named her “Notarealjoke.” Maybe we can be friends and grind on pop culture references sometime?

Rather than having you play as any of the show's cast members, they appear to be character archetypes players can model their own creations on. Avatars based on Peter will get the tank role, Stewie-based characters will be delicate but have high damage output, Lois types will focus on healing. There's even an unlockable dog archetype, but with very little of the Family Guy Online site populated so far, we don't want to speculate on who this non-human dog-like character class could be based on. If you have any guesses let us know.

    ... As much as I want to hate this and write it off as crap, I still want to know if there's a scout character.

    I can't tell if this is a joke or not, I mean I thought it was going to be a social networking thing but when you said 'Peter archtypes play the tank role' I got confused. I honestly can't tell if this is a joke article or not.

    I sometimes wonder if the same people who would actually look forward to this wouldn't just be equally as content with a Family Guy coloring book. Just because you like something doesn't mean it translates in to any other kind of media, Family Guy doesn't need a video game, it's not funny as a video game. It wasn't good on the Ps2, it won't be now.

    An online gaming community consisting entirely of the kind of people who enjoy watching Family Guy? Is this some form of trap designed by Microsoft to greatly improve the xbox live gaming community? I have a feeling if I sign up for this game, My gamer profile banned or segregated.

    Who watches Family Guy and says "God I wish this was an MMO"?
  • AlphaAGENT144 - July 20, 2011 9:37 p.m.

    why does this game exist. Family Guy isnt funny, therefor this game wont be either
  • therawski - July 20, 2011 9:38 p.m.

    Henry Gilbert of Gamesradar must be flipping out about this.
  • Campbell - July 20, 2011 9:50 p.m.

    Eventhough the game wil probably be crap, this editor did give me chuckle. Love Mcfarlanes work though.

    To quote Professor Hubert Farnsworth, "I don't want to live on this planet anymore."
  • SolarPoweredShitMachine - July 20, 2011 9:55 p.m.

    So... every 2 minutes the game interrupts whatever "gameplay" there is to make a lame pop culture joke? ...Oh wait, Family Guy doesn't have "jokes" anymore.

    Wow, Paul Ryan? You should have made Henry write this!
  • meh - July 21, 2011 12:33 a.m.

    LOL Paul, the way you typed this can't not make me laugh.
  • Robusken - July 21, 2011 2:39 a.m.

    @Randomwordcombination I seriously wish they made Henry do this. But having Paul Ryan write it is the next best thing
  • GoshDarnFreakingMetal - July 21, 2011 3:34 a.m.

    Seth MacFarlane... I'm starting to think this guy has no shame, since he shits on any form of media he has anything to do with. I sure hope the people who will voluntarily play this cheap cash-in don't expect a kiss on the cheek after Seth fucks them over again.

    The show stopped being funny 2 years ago. And saying Family Guy stopped being funny is like saying Call of Duty got worse. It's hard to imagin what it's like, but here it is.
  • MySistersMenstruationTastesFunny - July 21, 2011 5:02 p.m.

    I hadn't noticed who wrote this until @TheCanuck pointed it out. Now I have to reread it with Paul Ryan's voice.
