Why we game...

Posted December 24th, 2008 at 11:19 AM by Bones
I don't know why everyone plays games like these, I've tried to think of a reason that is all encompassing: escapism, a social activity, and even therapy (better to snuff out a Marro than your boss) to name a few. I know that many of us enjoy building armies, there are those of us who like the challenge and strategy elements of games like these, and some just enjoy the experiences of a creative building story, game play, and the luck involved (That's for all you natural 20-rolling peeps).

I can tell you from my own gaming background, that I grew up in a time when my cousins were the coolest people I knew. They played D&D and I remember sitting at the table, too young to play, but fascinated by the rolling dice, the DM's screen, and the maps, oh the maps! The stories got me all excited and when I was old enough, I wanted to be a part of an adventure. A game like this is fun at differing times in your life... let me explain.

When you are really young, role-playing...
