I've tried creating new characters but found that I'm not really good at roleplaying others as I have a tendancy to act how I would in real life. So half the time my characters are played as chaotic/neutral/lawful good.
The fighting aspect was my favourite, but even more so was coming up with the combinations and neat tricks within the game. The only problem with my teachers campaign was that it was extremely history focused and I just got lost with having to memorize all the politics and royalty within the game.
I love RPGs, and actually there is some truth to the S=FPS and N=RPG statement earlier.
INFJ (me) = really into RPGs, not so good at FPS's but still enjoys them in co-op mode.
INTJ = seems to enjoy both equally - gets more competative with FPS's though.
INFP = only seems to enjoy RPGs/SRPGs, really not fond of FPS's.
ENFJ = neither, not a gamer (seemed to like Animal Crossing though).
ESFJ = FPS's - likes showing off how far he's gotten.
ENF/TP = FPS videogames but likes RPG board games.
The INFP and me actually have a very similar taste in RPGs (mostly JRPGs), but I tend to get more involved with the characters while she seems to prefer the storyline.
There also seems to be a consistent pattern in which kind of RPG characters everyone uses (when they do play) :
INFJ (me) = mage/healer
INTJ = warrior
INFP = archer
ENFJ = ?
ESFJ = the most protagonist-like, usually warrior.
ENF/TP = archer/speedy warrior (like a ranger or something)
You never know...
ESTJ husband loves to roleplay, improvises like mad; as GM his preparations fit on half a page.
I(something)FJ mother loves to roleplay, and her character is super extravert! (She says that during play she can do really weird things she never dares to do in real life.)
