Klaatu talks about the benefits of tabletop gaming over computer gaming.
good episodeThe closest I come to gaming on the table-top is chess, and my on-line gaming life is more about casual FOSS games than PC gaming. But even as a non-gamer, I really enjoyed this episode.
It spoke to me because it reminded me how much I like science fiction novels better than science fiction on film. Like the tabletop games in your story, the power of imagination in a sci-fi story trumps, for me, even the most well-done special effects in a science fiction movie.
You make at least 7 good points here, in a show I found a good listen.
I like how you put that!I enjoyed your comment about a GM being a person that has too much imagination for one person. Well put!
Thanks for the commentsThanks gurdonark and Shane, glad you enjoyed the episode! The comparison between books and movies is such a great, meaty topic. Somebody ought to do a series on the subject.
open source gamesWhat does the FLOSS landscape look like for fantasy games?
