Role Playing Games
Everyone runs their game differently, and I don't mean to even try and tell you this is the way to be a game master/DM/whatever term you use for the person who runs the game here.
I'm old, and I've been at this hobby for a while.
Okay, let me just get it out of the way up front -- I've never liked any RPG published as much as I liked the boxed Dungeons and Dragons basic set when I got it in the early 80s.
The other day I talked about my love for Dragon Age 2.
I was first exposed to the idea of an interactive story RPG game with the Gold Box games from SSI.
