Great article! I can’t count the number of times I have had similar conversations with others regarding this topic. I agree regarding shooter games, specifically playing the library level on Halo. Playing on legendary was just ridiculous and nearly pointless because of the increased damage done to the player by the flood. The level wasn’t enjoyable for me during legendary difficulty. I also agree with the reference to L.A. Noire – near the end of that game I had trouble reading social cues and facial expressions, but that is what made the game fun. For the same reasons I appreciate platforming games as well as RPGs. The player is encouraged to take the time to learn game mechanics and enemies rather than hoping that by some stroke of luck they make it from cover to cover without getting hit.

Relative Difficulty: The Line Between Challenging and Frustrating

I think one of the most exciting aspects of Dungeons & Dragons is sharing the game with friends and family.

The dice are incredibly iconic for Dungeons & Dragons and many other tabletop games, glad to know you still use them for inspiration!

I can totally see the benefits of practicing improvisation during Dungeons & Dragons. It is also fun when the DM throws in some improv dialogue that is unexpected for the players, makes for some interesting conversations!

Interesting article and I think you make some great points. I am only familiar with your Titanic example but I think that when it comes to sex on TV and Movies age has a lot to do with how comfortable people are with sex. For example, I remember seeing Titanic while my mother was in the room and felt incredible uncomfortable during the sex scene at such a young age. Comparing that experience with similar moments during my adult years, the uncomfortable feeling has almost vanished. I think that, like with violence, people become desensitized to the sex scenes on screen. However, I do agree with you regarding sex on TV and movies, as you say, it should be portrayed as “honest, passionate, and private”. Nicely put.

D&D is something to try if you enjoy RPGs. For me it’s the ultimate form because you are literally acting out a role in the game, not just controlling a digital character.

I agree. It seems that older generations view D&D as extremely nerdy while the younger generations have not been exposed to that same stereotype, allowing them to have an open mind. Hopefully that trend continues.

I’m very new to the comic books world so this was a very informative article that I found interesting. I have to say that the trailers intrigue me and I will definitely be seeing this movie and doing more research about the comics.
