I was wondering with all the hoopla over BF's latest and greatest whether there were reasons that people don't play rules other than just "I don't like them." I don't play FoW personally just because I don't care for some aspects of the rules. There are other games that I won't play or don't like to play for the same reason, but I also won't play one game because I find the title frankly offensive. I know what the title refers to, but it's too easy to extrapolate another reference from it. There are also rules I won't play because of ignorant posts and responses I've gotten from the publishers/authors. Some I just refuse to shell out the money for as I find them ridiculously expensive for what they are. So, are there reasons you won't play certain games beyond the normal "I don't like them"?
