WTF is he whining about? Jeez, get a life!

I just wasted five minutes of my life reading that, and I demand a refund.
I have absolutely no clue what this person is cranking about in this entry. It makes no sense, and I think that even if I did understand it, I still probably wouldn't, and I don't think I would want to understand this dribble.

I guess I don't understand what "story gaming" is, as distinct from RPGs. I'm not clear on what the writer was trying to accomplish when he got involved with these people. Maybe he wanted to write an article, or learn more about this sub-genre before diving in, but neither seems to quite fit in with what he describes. Somehow, he seems to offend everybody, which begins to make me think that the problem is with him.
Maybe story games actually are fun and interesting, with the right group, but this just puts me off.

Looking for the common denominator as the possible problem seems to point to the man pointing the fingers. Almost as if he was looking for a controversial outcome to write about.

Read a few lines out of idle curiosity and – thanks to Murphy's warning – went no further.

To paraphrase Alan Parsons, "Its all Psycho-babble to me".

BTW what the hell is GNC anyway, this guy throws out terms and acronyms but doesn't bother to explain them?

Anyway, I build armies and game because it's fun and relaxing, when I start self-analyzing myself then I'm giving it up.

Well I had to look. Total waste of time.

Alan Parsons, the good old days.
