Writer's Block: Gaming From Young to Old

What was your favorite game as a child? What's your favorite now?


Spies. It was in the days of the Cold War in the early sixties, and everything from Man from U.N.C.L.E. to Get Smart was on the air, so we played spies. James Bond was fun. It got irretrievably mingled with numerous Westerns and the contents of Dark Shadows too, basically freeform roleplaying complete with codes handed off in notes and secret meetings and phone calls in the dead of night with code names. Lot of fun.

Right now as an adult it's a tossup between Diablo 2 and tabletop roleplaying games. Depends on whether I'm alone or with someone who likes RPGs. Same basic idea, makebelieve.

And then there's the other solo version, where I sit down at my laptop and start making it up and describe it as I go on, a lot like the aforementioned but with my both running the characters and being a cruel gamemaster. Lot of fun in that too. Right now I'm immersed in zombie boy Richie's attempt to get away from his botched zombie-raising (the bad guys got interrupted before they could control the young undead), and bumbling toward the highway on the off chance of finding some roadkill.
