Monte Cook Interview: A Counterpoint
If you haven’t seen it, there is a very interesting interview with Monte Cook on The Id DM where Monte Cook talks about what he thinks a good game design should — and should not — do. Read it here: Ego Check: Monte Cook, Game Designer & Author. While I respect Monte Cook more than I do many current professional tabletop RPG designers, I strongly disagree with most of what he says about RPG design in this interview.
I was going to write a long counterpoint to the game design positions he takes in this interview when I discovered John Morrow had said just about everything I wanted to say (and probably said it better than I could have in this post on theRPGsite.
