#RPGaday2017 What is an RPG genre-mashup you would most like to see?
I don’t like genre mashups.
No-fun Mark is no fun. While there is no doubt that there are some combos I enjoy — Firefly is probably the best example, though I dunno if it really counts — I generally find high-concept genre-mashing to be off-putting. My likely gonna-offend-somebody opinion is that it’s usually something done when one is out of ideas or fundamentally doesn’t understand how stories work. You know, like when gamers inevitably add Cthulhu to just about everything and assume it gets cooler. Or zombies.
So, honestly, no more genre mashups, please. How about we focus on getting one genre right first?
