Thursday and Friday are busy days at work this week, and with a friend's wedding on the weekend I'm not sure how much spare time I'll have with getting my own clothes ready for "proper public appearance" and other things like that. With that in mind, I figured I'd ask a simple one today.
How long have you been gaming?
For me it's been about 20 years, though it feels a lot longer than that sometimes. I got started when my cousin John made up a game using the stats from the Marvel collectible cards and we had games where people played their favorite marvel hero. From there I moved into Palladium Games with Heroes Unlimited and TMNT until I found myself in an AD&D second edition game.
I grew up during the whole White Wolf industries growth but never got too into the game system. In fact, I didn't really leave AD&D aside from brief forays back to Palladium systems like Robotech and Ninjas and Superspies until I ended up in an L5R game. It's been my main game ever since.
Now though I find myself liking a bunch of different systems and worlds. I care less about the mechanics of a game then I do the stories the world/game lets me try to tell with my friends.
How about you?
