JaxFox Posted December 10, 2001 Report Share Posted December 10, 2001 BCM, RtCW, Startopia, UT, Quake3, EQ, AC, DAOC...and countless others we all know at least one of these titles.Dungeons and Dragons, Vampire, Earthdawn, Chill, Shadow Run, Cyberpunk 2020, Deadlands, Warhammer 40K and Starfire.Very few know these titles. The second list is a genre that is sadly, slowly fadeing, giving way to the new age of computer and console games. Can the old pen and paper game, which involved groups of friends getting together with massive amounts of soda, pizza and chips, survive against graphics and ease of use?A good table top game can sometimes take several hours to prepare, and to play, let alone getting your friends schedule to match yours and everyone elses. Where as a computer or console game you hit a switch and bang! You have a game going that you can play when ever the time is convient for you, need some people to play with, once again hit a button and you have access to thousands of players.So my question is to you, can the tradition of table top live along side the new age of digital games? I personally think it can, sometimes just getting together with friends and using my imagination, pretending to be a great warrior traveling the world looking for adventure can be far more relaxing then computer games at times.So what do you think?
