For this weeks Poll Position, I asked for your help in picking a topic for the poll. There were some real good suggestions made but I am going to give the nod to The Atomic Punk for suggesting “Traditional or Pen and Paper RPG’s vs MMORPG’s”. So this is what I want to know, given that they are two totally different experience, which of the two do you prefer to play? Please take a moment to vote for your favorite, and comment below with your reasons for your pick. As a bonus I would love to know which games you have played in the past?
Myself I have played:
Pen and Paper Games: AD&D 1st edition, AD&D 2nd Edition, Heroes Unlimited ( a superhero rpg ), RIFTS, Palladium Fantasy, Mechton, and Vampire the Masquerade.
MMORPG’s: Everquest, Guild Wars, Final Fantasy XI, World Of Warcraft ( for a very short time ), Shaiya, Dungeons & Dragons Online, and DC Universe Online.
All in all while I enjoy both experiences I have to say that if I had to pick a favorite I would go with the old school pen and paper rpg’s. There is just something about getting together with some real good friends around a table that you lose with MMORPG’s. to throw in a little bonus answer my favorite game of all the pen and paper games I hav e played would have to be RIFTS.
