But the new one... well... I'm not even involved in it. I won't mention names, but it's an interesting scenario. Which leads me to an interesting conclusion... that perhaps my previous assessment to hangup my "roleplaying" hat is not too far off course.
- RPGs require a great deal of set-up time and too many "contracts."
- RPGs have too many splinted "factions" of fan, thus making it difficult to align tastes.
- Few of my friends have time for gaming.
- As a result, their "fun" time is limited.
- Board games and video games provide immediate gratification.
- Games like WoW and Halo provide 75% of gamers with their "combat" needs on a level that D&D cannot.
More news after the local game convention, where I'm sure to get doses of RPGs, LARPs, and Board Games into my malnourished system.
