Love the Game! or Love this game

<< < (3/3)

I like rules, reading them, playing around with them, checking the implications at the extremes, etc.  I often pick up the core book for a game just to check it out. (less so since the second kid)  I also pick up old games that I've heard about if I happen to find the book used.  I know that I'll never play most of these but they're fun to look at.

But, beyond the core book, I don't buy supplements unless it fits well within something that I'm working on.  I've bought maybe 3 D&D books in the last 2 years - I don't feel I'm missing out on the horde of D&D books out there because they don't add that much to the base game.

I'll play pretty much whatever a group wants to play.  To me, a good group affects the quality of play more than the specific game.

I love the game.  I'll play any system.  I've discovered that the players and the person running things are where the fun comes from, the rest can be worked around or ignored if necessary for the fun.

I love to game.  That said I do love systems (D20 for me right now).  I love the Rifts setting (for the most part), but I can't stand to play the Palladium system.  Every now and then, I want to play something different though, so I'll play a round of WHFRP v2 or Exalted or whatever.

I'm pretty much a two trick pony at this point.  I only play d20 and Warhammer 40K.  Now I do prefer D&D 3.X in d20 but in now way is it the only thing that I will play.  I've played Star Wars, CoC, Stargate, and Babylon 5.  I have noticed that as I get older my expanse of games that I play seems to get smaller.  True, d20 has helped with that since mutiple games have the same mechanic system.  Back in the day I used to play anything that I could get my hands on.  :D
