Quote from: Jack Spencer JrOne thing that seems to be overlooked in this discussion, which I think should not be, is that RPGs are very different from comic books. That is, comics are a fairly passive entertainment.RPGs are a more active hobby. It's more akin to modeling in that effort is expected from the hobbyist. You don't just sit down and play an RPG, like you play a board game or videotape. There is preparation involved. Even the act of playing requires effort. This is one thing about RPGs that keeps it out of the mainstream, I think. Like Raven had said. People like watching sports, not playing. We're a society of voyeurs, it seems.
