Oh no, no, no.Table top games are boooooorrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiinnnnnnng. Action is not to be had. Even D&D is boring.The only influence table top games have had on me is making me love my computer and game counsel more and more.

Game counsel: "We advise you to buy a Wii, my lord."Came consul: "I am Exboxius, one of two leaders of the Roman state!"Game console: What you meant. ;)

If they are that boring, you aren't playing them right. XDThough I expect people who love to RP get more enjoyment out of D&D type games than others.

Okay, I will bite. @Mordok (And the first numbskull) 1. you are totally doing it wrong (and there really is no wrong way). 2. Use your mind more and your mouth (fingers) less. The beauty of PnP/D&D is that it's all in your head. If you lack that capacity, then you are probably the type of player who plays one toon and raids until you get so burn out you quit and go play some flashy FPS game. So sad for you. These games require imagination. I am very thankful I grew up on games like D&D and Ultima (not Ultima online, the really old version that you played on a C-64). Having played those games it allowed me to build images and stories in my head while playing.

AS someone who doesnt have a PnP group, wow is an acceptable substitute. But its all about what and how you want to play. If you enjoy quick fire reflex twanging action - go for wow. If you have a good imagination, and a good group on RL friends with the same interests, then PnP is imho vastly superior. There is no game mechanics that a good DM doesnt fix on the fly. There is nothing restricting you character from doing LITERALLY anything.If I had my choice of free wow forever or a good PnP group meeting 1ce or 2ce a week? Tis the PnP group every time. If I want fps gaming - consoles are the way to go. If I want something to fire my imagination - its PnP. Each have their place.
