It was not a video game it was playing the AD&D in college that changed a lot of my perspective on life and everything. Since then I have tried to learn something new every day. Thus I have a lot of useless knowledge in my head but it is fun at times too *smile* The sad part is I have forgotten a lot now too.
Long time ago a friend introduced me to the Dungeons & Dragons basic set or red box as some of us know it. Ever since that its been a new realm of imagination for me.
Comments: Have you heard Gamma World? When I was first introduced to it I was amazed at the amount of imagination it took to play but it also made me start to look at things differently as I started to think in "What if" scenarios whenever my mind wandered.
I have not changed because of any particular Role-playing Game but my imagination has come alive from a mixture of all and great fantasy / fiction movies.
I find myself thinking at times when I am dealing with people that someone hit this person with a ray of enfeeblement because they are not making any sense. Or at other times I think this would be a great place for a fireball or ice storm. I find that Role-playing Games have changed the way I think plus all the reading I do helps that way too.
