From Jeff Vogel, a guy who writes fantasy role-playing games for a living, comes the best description I have ever seen of fantasy role-playing games:

Once, I was young, intelligent and seemingly full of great promise. And I squandered that potential writing games where, basically, you play a thug who looks around for people different from him, breaks into their homes, kills them, takes their stuff, sells it, and uses the proceeds to buy better weapons so that he can kill a higher class of people who look different then him. This process ends when one of two things happens. Either you kill the biggest person who looks different from you, or if you are playing Ultima IV, you attain moral enlightenment.

Wow. LJ comment spamming.
Is this a common thing now? It's my first time seeing it.

I haven't seen much of it in general. I've seen three or four of these posted to my journal recently, though.
