6:54p - Gaming as a spectator sport?
Disclaimer: I may be totally wrong about this. But it's the way I feel.

I have always believed that the player characters in games should have the opportunity to affect what happens, and not just be expected to react to what happens.

I shall attempt to explain: in a game I used to play in, the GM maintained that his plot was more important than our characters. No matter what we did, the outcome was predetermined -- it was apparently our job to just react to things, not to change them in any way.

I do not find this sort of game fun. It gets frustrating when you can't change anything, and leaves me feeling...manipulated, somehow.

*shrugs* Maybe it's just me....

current mood: tired
