I really like Marcus’ attitude. I know the comic is ostensibly “this is how to play D&D wrong”, but I think little bits of wisdom sneak in there from time to time.
(Having said that, he did not lose with style.)
This is more or less how I play, on the rare times when I’m a player and not a GM. After a couple of minutes of people deciding what to do with the mysterious door, I tend to just kick it in. This is probably one of the reasons I end up playing meat shield types a lot. Also, I’d last about 2 minutes in the Tomb of Horrors. ;)
Diablo III Retrospective
We were so upset by the server problems and real money auction that we overlooked just how terrible everything else is.
Grand Theft Auto Retrospective
This series began as a cheap little 2D overhead game and grew into the most profitable entertainment product ever made. I have a love / hate relationship with the series.
Gamers Aren’t Toxic
This is a horrible narrative that undermines the hobby through crass stereotypes. The hobby is vast, gamers come from all walks of life, and you shouldn't judge ANY group by its worst members.
Skyrim Thieves Guild
The Thieves Guild quest in Skyrim is a vortex of disjointed plot-holes, contrivances, and nonsense.
Juvenile and Proud
Yes, this game is loud, crude, childish, and stupid. But it it knows what it wants to be and nails it. And that's admirable.
