Red Box Nostalgia
I agree, the game was fun for the stories told with it, not cause of the rules.
Since balancement wasn’t percieved as a problem and the rules where relatively simple, they could be customized to accomodate the story.
I was talking with a friend today about this sick nostalgia thing that has swept the culture ever since the nerds have won weltanschauung hit us hard.
Case in point, and the subject of our discussion today – people waxing nostalgic about the D&D Red Box.
I mean, really?
Don’t get me wrong – the Basic Set Red Box was certainly the first form of roleplaying game for a lot of people, including my brother (me, I started playing with Call of Cthulhu), but really thirty years on people still consider that their best, and most memorable gaming experience?
