This prompt always seems to come up in these RPG a Day things and really it is a boring question for me. Yes – I evolve as a gamer. I like playing new games and pushing myself. But don’t most of us? Of course, there is the set that like to just stick with the safe old popular games – but even they have changed over time.
I really do not know where to start with this prompt. I don’t really have anything interesting to say about evolving in games. I have gone from someone who likes a crunchy game to now playing games which try to reduce crunch. But I do like systems that enhance a game – crunchy or not. So it is not a simple thing to talk about. Evolving is not a straight forward thing and when it comes to RPG’s it is certainly not clear cut. There is a prevalence of games on the market that are throwbacks to times prior because modern RPG’s have wandered far from their roots. It has all come full circle – but that is not all that surprising. Keep rolling.
