What is your preferred class in a RPG/JRPG/MMO?

Basically what the title says. What class do you generally prefer to play in each type of RPG?

In MMOs I always prefer self sustaining types that can roam alone since I like exploring so usually Druid.

In JRPGs I like a lot of utility so Red Mage types that can do a bit of everything whenever necessary are typically my favorites. Blue Mages add a lot of fun too since their gameplay can change depending on replay etc.

I generally prefer to play as the lead fighter when I play. However, spell casters with black Mage abilities are really fun too.

Nexromancers and Archers always appealed to me. I like long range stuff.

I tend to flip between different classes. Generally I like to be the big Knight character, in games like Neverwinter Nights, Dragon Age, Dark Souls, etc. my character is always heavily armoured, wielding a big 2-handed sword, that type of thing. But at the same time I also really enjoy being the Ranger class and that will tend to be done in my second playthrough, or vice versa. Depends on my mood at the time!

I like arcane warriors, lots of armour, a big sword and a few good spells. I'm pretty bad at games where you have to rely on team mates, so being strong and able to heal myself is the best for me.

If tabletop RPGs count, then I'll say I prefer playing spellcasters, especially wizards and clerics. I have been known to play rangers and rogues as well, though. There are still some classes that I've yet to try that would interest me, namely druids. I'm not a front-line fighter tank guy, I can guarantee that!

In a World of Warcraft sense my favourite was the Protection Warrior. (The only purely non magical main tank).
In D&D I used to play a warrior/ranger hybrid of sorts. Basically it was a character with max bow skills and silent feats so he could sneak around and get off nice early shots with the bow. And past that he'd stay at the back of the party just providing covering fire.

In both cases I used almost zero magic. I'm the kind of person who likes to make characters that don't use any magic. I even made characters in Diablo 2 that didn't use any mana.

For the longest time I always prefered ranged damage dealer, mostly of the magical kind. Recently though I've started to really enjoy playing the healer class. I think it's pretty neat that you have the responsibility to look after the team, coincidently if you **** up your team will often let you know, and they won't be kind about it. Melee classes have never been my flavor, always found them quite dull in comparison.

I usually like to go for a thief/ranger type. A lone wolf, who does his/her own thing, can cover his/her tracks, live off the land, etc.. Sometimes I alter it a bit and do the monk, at one with nature, very disciplined, etc..

Alternatively, I like to play as a quick and agile sword fighter. Wielding swords in each hand, lightly armoured, extremely fast (which makes sense, since he/she will have little to no armor).

I rarely do the bulky warrior. I find it boring and cliche, tbh. I also rarely do the mage/wizard, for the same reasons, though if I had to chose, I'd go mage over warrior.

Depends on what enemies I am facing or whatever. I tend to like warrior classes overall, but black mages can come in handy when I want to dish out damage to multiple enemies based on their elemental weaknesses. I wish more [J]RPGs (I've never played an MMO before) had jobs that are similar to mystic knights, a class that combines the best of both worlds in the form of Spellblade. Spellblade is the ability to fuse magic into the wielder's weapon for extra damage/effect.
