P&P RPGs and computer RPGs scratch different itches. I generally prefer computer RPGs for the tighter narrative and visuals, but they seldom hold up to the social aspect. Hard to do beer and pretzels with friends over a computer RPG :/.

I’d do more P&P if my group wasn’t so busy. I’ve managed two sessions of our current campaign in the last two and a half months. At this rate I’m going to have to can it :(. Hopefully it can pick up.

I hardly play any MMOs any more. Just don’t have the time to dedicate to them these days and I’m honestly not a huge fan of themepark MMOs. I rather miss the gold old ones like EQ, Dark Age of Camelot, etc. Very few of those around these days. I have one or two I log into every now and then (I have a lifetime sub to Star Trek Online, so I jump into that for a bit every few months), GW2 on occasion as well. I just don’t have anyone to play them with so meh.. I stick to SP games.

I think I’ve broken Skyrim more times than I can count. I had to tone down the amount of mods I have in this playthrough because I kept blowing the RAM stack and couldn’t make it run stably. I do love tinkering with it though.

For my own worlds though I also prefer writing. I like worldcrafting and tinkering with mechanics more than telling stories though, probably why my main hobby has always been boardgame/tabletop game design.

I should re-visit some of the worlds I created in my earlier writing.. I’m sure some of it could do with a big overhaul.
