And Now For Something Completely Different
August 3rd, 2002
So it's about fifteen minutes until the roundtable is scheduled to begin when I get a call. "Hi, we can't get ahold of our ride to the airport and our flight leaves in an hour and a half, can you by any chance help us out?" Now, endlessly faithful in my fellow employees to help out in an emergency (it is one of our application questions, after all...) I decided to leave roundtable moderation to our fellow mediaite James Smith this week while I played the role of the night in shining armor to our stranded travelers. I think he did a fantastic job, especially considering he hadn't ever participated in a roundtable before, let alone directed one, and I hope you'll agree with me after you read it.
The topics this week resulted in a very heated discussion between the various panelists, with some people having very different opinions than the others. From people arguing the merits of remaking games to the optimal nature of sequels to the most anticipated games of each of the participating staffers, the questions this week allowed for a lot of personal opinions to shine through, which resulted in one of the fastest-paced discussions the roundtable has seen. Another reader had the opportunity to join the staff on the roundtable, that being Henry Olson, who provided some insights and opinions that would have otherwise been missed by our staffers. I'd also like to thank Phil Tyran again for helping out with one of the topics. I'll be returning to direct the next roundtable, and we're still looking for readers to help us out, so get those applications and suggestions to me ASAP!
We're still open to applications to sit on our roundtable and talk about games with your favorite staff members of RPGamer; the link is on the sidebar to the right. Suggestions, comments, possible discussion topics, and anything else you feel like throwing my way are always welcome, and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a good week, and keep reading!
The opinions expressed in the following topics are the opinions of these four staff members (and one reader) and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of RPGamer as a whole, nor the RPGamer staff members not participating in the roundtable.
