Nawt Vidja Gaims

The games that I've been posting about are table top role playing games, not video games.

In fact, calling any video game a "role playing game" is utter poppycock!

The playing the role part is the same use of the word as an actor playing a role.

Video games don't have that.

You move a playing piece around the sand-box, you don't play a role.
