Reverb Gamers Prompt #14
Atlas Games is doing this thing called “Reverb Gamers 2012″, with 31 question prompts to kick off 2012. I’m going to post one up each day, including weekends, throughout January. I invite you to do the same! And check out @ReverbGamers on Twitter or Facebook.
REVERB GAMERS 2012, #14: What kinds of adventures do you enjoy most? Dungeon crawls, mysteries, freeform roleplaying, or something else? What do you think that says about you?
The idea that “freeform roleplaying” is a separate callout is weird. Combined with other questions, I’m starting to get a sense that what I call “roleplaying” is far, far different from what these questions assume. I don’t know what that says about me.
I also don’t know what that says about the rest of you, either.
Anyway, I couldn’t tell you what I enjoy the most, as I couldn’t tell you what sort of TV I enjoy the most.
When it comes to adventure structure, I’m happy with drama-based and travelogue-based games. Mysteries are cool, and I think every game could do well with a mystery component to it. Dungeon crawls (the travelogue style) have a nice, campy feel for beer & pretzels fun, or can get emo and epic like I try to do in Mythender.
So, uh, games of all sorts are cool?
 Actually, that’s a lie: I enjoy The Daily Show & Colbert Report more than most. But going back to solely fiction rather than satirical comedy…
 What I’ve also called adventure games & story games.
