#RPGaDay 2016 - Day 7

Posted by Rob Kalajian in games

What aspect of RPGs has had the most effect on you?

The best thing about RPGs is the social aspect. People coming together to tell a story together and have a great time. RPGs have always filled a social need in my life. Playing at a friend’s house. Playing at camp since I wasn’t much into sports. Telling stories with like-minded individuals in high school. Playing with groups of great people in college, since the party scene was never my thing.

It’s how I feel about tabletop gaming in general, but RPGs tend to bring out the fantastical in people. It transforms a basement/bedroom/living room into a completely different world. The players become more than just kids/teens/adults. They’re heroes. They’re villains. They comrades or foes. In the end, they’re all part of the story.

It’s all about the people. It’s all about sharing those good times.
