As the title suggests. It goes without saying that most here are gamers of some sort, some of us (at least me) are primarily console gamers, others (like Ace, no offense) are die-hard PC gamers. We all play digital games, so to speak.
Now, what I was pondering, is there anyone on these forums who plays non-digital games? Mainly pen 'n papper RPGs or tabletop wargames, or why not trading card games? I myself do play a lot of PnP RPGs and a few tabletop wargames (Warhammer, Flames of War, Necromunda and looking at starting Malifaux).
The reason I ask is because I can't help but notice (at least get the impression) that they seem to be somewhat exclusive to each other. Video games is an accepted form of entertainment, while roleplayers and wargamers still somewhat struggle with the stereotype of unwashed people in a basement playing out less than child-friendly fantasies, or being grown people playing with toy soldiers.
I dunno, could just be my interpretation of the whole thing, but where I come live video games are accepted, RPGs and wargames less so.
Wall of text, sorry. Anyway, feel free to share your opinions on this, or if you indeed pursue a similar hobby.
TL;DR - Do you play any other games than video games, or do you think video games are more socially acceptable than wargames and RPGs?
Also, first thread I've started on this forum, I think. Yikes!
