Whoooo! Hi @Deia!
“What is my favorite game?” What an awful question.
Having been in the service and sales industry myself for many years, people asking me “what is the best thing for me/my friend/my kid/my friend’s kid/my family member as a gift?” has also frustrated me, it’s a very similar question. “What’s the hottest, the coolest?”
It’s always made me feel like these people asking me didn’t know much about themselves, or their friends, or their friend’s kids, etc., well enough to give me some guidance to help them choose something appropriate.
(BAD ANALOGY coming up): I can give a customer steak or fish or tofu, but if they don’t know if the person they’re getting it for is vegan, or has an allergy, or is doing paleo or whatever, I can’t really help them. They just expect you to know, or just want whatever the latest craze is. They don’t want “Good,” they just want “Now.”
Sorry for the rant, welcome!
Hi, Jacob, or @WaitingCynicism, or whatever! That was exactly my dorm-mate’s major when I went to university (they called it Information Science back in the early 90s), and he introduced me to MTG when it was this cool new thing that all the nerds were talking about.
I’ve been playing D&D since the 4e red box set in the 80s. Believe me, no more THAC0 is a good thing, my friend. (Yes, guys, back off, I’m old, I know). Anyway, welcome! Anyone who’s into Dungeons, and occasionally Dragons, is automatically on my A list.
