Un discorso molto interessante che sicramente condivido appieno per la parte GdR e che reputo vero anche per la parte letteraria della quale non ho esperienza diretta.
A very interesting dissertation that I fully agree with, especially for the RpG part. I suppose it correct also for the literary part even if I don’t have a direct experience of it.
OK, short rant.
I’ll make it quick, I promise.
Two days back I witnessed a lengthy discussion between roleplayers comparing the merits and flaws of two popular gaming systems*.
The thing went on for a couple of hours as the involved parties compared narrativist and simulationist approaches to the rules, whether one system “outperformed” the other, the rate of fluff and crunch in the respective handbooks.
It was damn boring, and supremely futile.
