Do you mean shock: social science fiction? Just "Shock:" isn't going to help everyone. ;)

Good list. There's still 10 or 12 of those I have to play.

I wonder why D&D4e and Vampire are in there.



Blogger Unknown says:  

D&D4 and Vampire are games that have a precise identity, and that can be played with a specific creative agenda that the system enables (hmm. For Vampire, I doubt a bit on the system). They are great rpg to try, for sure. Even after learning RPG theory and playing "odd" games, you can't withdraw the rpg status to these games.
I'm not fond about the political plots and personal horror of Vampire, but this is strictly a question of taste. I love D&D4, on the other hand, because it is entirely designed for gamist play, without a thought about realism, unlike its ancestor 3.5

Go and try, as the thread advices.



Blogger misuba says:  

Vampire is there specifically to teach that a game's system can fail to support what it promises.



Blogger Keith Senkowski says:  

Tell me Harper, why do you hate Synnibarr so much that you left it out of your list?



Blogger Trithemius says:  

Ars Magica teaches the same lesson as Vampire, but it takes a bit longer and is more heart-breaking.

No Burning Empires?



Blogger Don Corcoran says:  

D&D 4e brings the awesome. It marries solid design with clear and concise rules for playing the game including stake setting and "Yes and..." Read the DMG, it's chock full of sound game theory nuggets.

I'm disgusted by having read about half of the list, but played only one. Groups, man.

Also, which Polaris? There's 3 that I know of.



Blogger skinnyghost says:  

The reasons that I can't play WoD games much anymore is exactly the comment that @misuba made.

If Vampire mechanically supported the fiction it's meant to create - hot damn.



Blogger Unknown says:  

What, no Risus?



Blogger Sheikh Jahbooty says:  

I think he means Ben Lehman's Polaris, not the French post apocalypse one, although I think that one is cool too.

Risus rocks. I don't know about creative agenda, but it definitely forces you to be creative.

Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.

In business, leverage is used to describe an investment strategy for the startup or expansion of an enterprise. If a business is said to be leveraged, it has borrowed money to fund the acquisition of assets. Leverage can also be accomplished using equity – the raising of money from investors. If a company or investment is highly leveraged, it has more debt than it has equity. In the event that the investment fails, the investor stands to make a greater loss than if the investment had not been leveraged. An advantage of using borrowed funds for leverage is that the business owner retains full control of their business.

The next screenshot shows how the main user interface in the MT4 platform looks like. Your “Chart window” will most likely be black and green and cluttered with a variety of indicators, but you can (if you want to see what I see) easily change that by a right-clicking on the chart -> Properties -> and choose “Black On White” from the “color scheme” drop-down menu, and change the Grid color to “None”.
