admittedly not many people still play them, even less in the southern states where it doesnt snow or rain constantly for 9 months out of the year..
but there is still a strong following of old school gamers, people who cant give up a thursady night around the gaming with their buds for the ease of
online gaming... dont get me wrong.. i (We) love my (Our) MMOs, but on this perticular lvl they just dont compare.. you cant trade the feel of the
dice in your hand for a computer that just calculates the odds for you and tells you if you did it or not.. nor can you compare having your closest
friends right there with you.. laughing and gaming, with the faceless names of those you play with online.
Whats more i just cant get into roleplaying in MMOs, when i log in, i am me, playing a video game with others playing a video game, but when i sit at
the gaming table i become that cunning rogue slinking through the shadows, quietly watching the foolish cleric sitting next to me and making sure he
doesnt stumble into impending doom before the warrior kicks the door in and starts throwing axes into the skulls of goblins and orcs
