Storylines: Epic or non-epic

Varaj:
Which you prefer as a player, as a GM?

I tend to like non-epic games myself.

Aelfinn:
If by epic storylines you mean campaign-spanning world-changing events where the players are in the thick of things, then I'm all for them.

Pretty much what I mean.

Nicephorus:
I tend to prefer non-epic ones.  First of all, I'm not that much into high level play in any system - if you're individual contribution is that critical,  you're usually pretty godlike.  Epic plots also encourage high fantasy character types who are very altruistic - saving the world because that's just what they do.  It's also hard to do good epic plots that aren't huge with tons of plot holes.
 
It can be done well but it usually isn't.

What would be an example of one of your "non-epic" games?
