The Other Games Forum

Post by alcyone »

Sometimes, I feel guilty talking about the Other Games I like on the forums that TLG kindly host. After reflecting on this a bit, I have decided that this is actually one of the best things about this forum.

I can't think of very many forums (though there are some) run by a game publisher that encourage discussion of competitors games. If I find a game I'd really like to play, and there is no place to talk about it, I'll bring it up here. Usually I try to find an official forum first, but these days many are G+ or Facebook or something else I don't use, or just a one-sided blog. Places like Dragonsfoot, OSRGaming.org, and Odd74 are all good for certain kinds of games, but the community I am most familiar with and game with online are all here. Many C&C players, particularly those who don't only play C&C, are curious about the same sorts of games I am.

I decided there's no reason to feel guilty. If people who are playing other games are coming to TLG's forums, that's definitely a win. The scenario where someone starts playing a new game and leaves forever is far worse.

So, it's not for me to say, but I think, if you came here to talk about C&C, and decided you liked (for example) Legend more, stick around and talk about Legend (in the proper subforum.) Rather have you here where we can keep you in the loop about C&C and talk about gaming in general then have you scurry off to Mongoose and lose you.

You've got the right of it, Aergraith. Talking about other offerings in our hobby is encouraged in this subforum so no need to hold back. I love many games alongside C&C. My faves are C&C, OD&D (1974), and Warhammer FRP 2nd edition in the Fantasy Genre and I will play any of these anytime Ive got others to throw some dice with.

Yep, I think you know I actually like a lot of RPG's, and own a LOT of them, and play them whenever I can. I'm not concerned that I will ever leave C&C, its the first game I have ever found that is darn near perfect for me to use, and I have plenty of people face to face and on line to play it with, but its also nice to be able to come here and see and talk about RPG's outside of C&C, thats for sure. Like I am currently running two Traveller games and playing in an Aces and Eights game, as well as another C&C game, in addition to running mine on either weekly or mostly bi weekly, alternating, schedules. So I am very happy with my RPG life right now.

I like talking about other games here precisely because it's the C&C / TLG forum, and I know I can count on more or less like-minded people to give me solid reviews, impressions, and opinions about other games that I might like.

Don't the ones with the guns kill the ones with the swords pretty quickly? Or are the guns not very good, or is everyone bulletproof, or...?

I'm sure I have talked about Savage Worlds (and some of Pinnacle Entertainment's other related properties) at least once. ;)

Truth. Dark Heresy is about everything I want in a dark, gothic sci-fi RPG. A pretty decent system, and filled with BUCKET LOADS of gothic badassery.

Dark Heresy and C&C are my favorite RPGs. Being different genres, I can play both and not get confused. Because I get confused pretty easily.

I'm not sure I'm the target demographic for a 2nd edition of Dark Heresy.
