Embarrassing Answers to Common Questions (by Rob Balder)
July 25th, 2011
People ask me all the time what games I play. I hate answering that question, because I don't play anything that I am really proud of playing. At the GenCon panel a few years ago, the question came up and I said, "I only play Hello Kitty Island Adventure." It got a laugh, and got me off the hook from giving a real answer, which wasn't much less embarrassing than that.
But I'll admit, I am hooked on browser games, especially tower defense games, and especially the ones at Armor Games. So because I said I would, here's a shout-out to Jesvar, a guy I met playing Shell Shock who has become a fan of Erfworld. His favorite characters are Wanda and the dwagons. Jesvar, I hope your friends believe you now that that's how you discovered the comic. Anyone else, if you ever see me on Shell Shock, my handle is pclips.
What? No Barbie Horse Adventures: Riding Camp?
Seriously, don't be ashamed of the games you play. We ask because we want to know. Heck, I love Space Empires IV, The Sims (the first one, I'm not willing to buy fractional expansion packs), the Quest for Glory series, and Dwarf Fortress.
