Mostly I was a DM and I absolutely loved it. Writing epic modules/adventures is like writing a novel, but even better because you get to live it out...sort of. Watching the reactions of the players, seeing how they will deal with problems and situations, and bringing them enjoyment (read: toying with their emotions, MUAHAHA ) through the story that you've created is THE coolest. I guess if I was in the movies, I'd want to be a director rather than an actor.
Also played a bit of Traveller, Star Wars and Shadowrun. Just before I stopped playing, I was starting to get into Rifts. Anybody else play that? I thought it was an awesome setting with some cool classes too. And the artwork was truly inspiring.

Yeah, we had that as well. The older we got, the harder it became to take things seriously. I remember us nearly pissing ourselves with laughter, tears streaming down our cheeks making dumbass jokes about knights soiling their armour, Monty Python and The Holy Grail lines, and other silliness (very mature, yes I know ) But hey, it was fun. I miss those days.
