Dissecting Worlds New Years Honours!

And so the time has come again to anoint our favorite things of the year. As usual, there are two lists, one for each of our celebration-addled brains.

    As a member of the PC Maxsterrace who grew up on Nintendo and only got into tabletop roleplaying within the last few years I have to say I don’t like the elitism presented by calling tabletop roleplaying “real games” Besides you can’t do platforming or parkour on tabletop. Videogames present parkour and platforming as smooth, fluid, intuitive fully under your control. You cannot do that with table top roleplaying.

      I think Kehaar’s elitism on this subject has been pretty well documented on the show! Its certainly not one that I share, as should be apparent.

      from a Tabletop perspective its not just RPGs we mean either, but board- and war-games. I nearly nominated Warhammer 40k 7th edition, just to annoy him.
