I was talking to my GM friend the other day and I realized that he actually likes playing the game as much as running it. I don’t share this feeling at all. I’ll play, but it’s not really my thing. Mostly when I play, I find ways to break or add to the system because that’s the fun I have with RPG’s.
My topic is two-fold:
- Am I alone in this or is this pretty common in the game-running community?
- Do I miss valuable experiences by not wanting to play or is the point of having a minority interest in GM-ing that most people like to play and the hobby just needs facilitators sometimes?
