Have you ever said to yourself, "I want to play high-stakes poker with Brock Samson (Venture Bros), Claptrap (Borderlands), Ash Williams (Evil Dead / Army of Darkness), and Sam (Sam & Max)?" Me neither.
I don't know about you, but sometimes, I need a break. Sometimes, I don't need to feel like I'm controlling entire armies or galaxies. Sometimes, I don't need to be a lone action hero, fighting my way through an alien army.
How do I explain a game like Dungeon of the Endless in a rational, logical manner?
Android: Netrunner is easily the most stressful, anxiety-ridden game I've ever played at a table.
