Not to get nit picky but it was Dungeon Master (DM) not game master :) And it was an art. My friend was a damn good one who would spin the story and throw in lots of extra stuffs.

Actually, I have heard people running/leading a tabletop game being called Game Master (GM), Dungeon Master (DM), Storyteller (ST) and more. It often depends on what game you are running - DM is usually D&D, ST is often White Wolf and so forth. But frankly, I'm of the opinion you can call them whatever, as long as it doesn't make them angry enough to kill everyone.For instance, don't mock the sudden appearance of pirates in his game so much that you start calling him Pirate Master (PM?) and he literally pulls the 'Rocks fall, everyone dies' scenario on your party ... Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything. >.
