Second discussion for this week, but it's something that's been on my mind a lot today. We all have things we don't like. Maybe it is just a genre or some aspect of a genre that you don't like, or maybe it is something bigger and more personal. We all have something that makes us not want to be part of a game. Something that might even have us taking a step back from an established group because we didn't like it. So what is it for you?
Personally, I'm not sure. I enjoy gaming and what gaming does for me so much I think I'd be hard pressed to back out of a game. I might be more willing to play some things (giant robots, super heroes, etc) than others, but that is totally different. That said, one of my house mates doesn't like Giant Robots and has said that while there would be no ill will if we swap to a Giant Robot type game they'll likely sit that one out.
On the darker level, I know some people who have had to leave games because they weren't comfortable with the content the GM was bringing forward. They still liked the GM, and the group, but the subject matter of the game - it was a very dark game to be fair - just wasn't for them.
How about you?
As a disclaimer, I'm not asking for people to open up things that may make them uncomfortable. Share what you want. I'm just curious what it is you specifically want to avoid in a game.
