Wizard, to enjoy ROK II one must have the following: a good imagination, a love of reading, passionate about writing, an interest in character and world building, and the ability to learn that Rome was not built in a day. Most people want 'press a button' kind of play so that there is no thought behind it.
This video does not put down those who want things made easier or in a style they like, this video merely compares the attributes that ROK II has that other games simply do not have such as: being able to play anytime, changing the game, shaping your own character exactly as you want it, record your career for all to read be it personal, as a leader or a ruler, etc.
You guys always fall for the model looking girls rolleyes don't you. The video is really good. My favorite part was the pirate at the end. I will like to see more of her probably in a video of her own for ROK II.
Nice spin on the different Role-playing Game types. I think only the most seasoned role-players will enjoying writing in character. Those born after 2000 always want a quick fix and can't appreciate character building.
Definitely a different way to play a role-playing game. Its uniqueness may very well become popular but I feel it will be more of a niche game for some who do appreciate detail.
It would be ideal to have a group set up I don't think anything can really ever replace in-person play where you can get the feel of the people opposite to you. With that said I feel ROK II is great for on the go play. When I am traveling I can check on my character and stop when I get to work. Its just very convenient.
