Skyrim is a MUCH easier game to get into than a Pen and Paper RPG. A friend of mine tried to get me into a Star Wars PnP, and I was horrified at all the dice rolling on tables for my guy's stats.And when it came time to play with the others...it was really weird for me, like being a kid again and playing make-believe where we go and hunt dinosaurs in the woods. But about Star Wars...and not with the movie stuff I know and love, a weird version with tiny Rabbit people and that junk.
I agree with you, Brent. A perfect example for me is Blood Bowl. I play it religiously on the PC but have not once played the table top version. It's not that I don't want to play it in person as intended, far from it, it's that with the PC version I'm instantly hooked up with thousands of people all ready to play a game at a moments notice. Plus, as you said, it's far easier to work into your schedule.There's obvious other benefits too with a digital version of a game. I don't need to go buy a new team each time I want to try one out. I have access to all of them as part of the initial purchase. The game themselves are faster too. I don't need to reference rules for dice rolls and such, the game knows and handles these things. It also, as a result, eliminates rules arguments. So forth and so on.These type of games don't replace the in-person versions of them, they're as much different as they are the same, but they do cater to a much wider audience and offer their own experience.
What madjob said is a common style of attack I see a lot on the Internet lately - it has no substance and really he has no clue into regard to those in your gaming group. It is a childish comment.G
Since there are no gaming consoles in prison the amount of pnp that I've seen on a daily bases there would make you laugh. Madjob will probably kill you for that comment blow fly, so that he can get back to his gaming group. Brent, I can think of some other great reasons for you to go to prison besides finding a new gaming group lol.
