#rpgaday2018 2. What do you look for in an RPG?
A compelling premise implemented with a design that demonstrates a familiarity with current game “technology”. I.e., it has to demonstrate familiarity with games made in the last twenty years, at least.
Good layout and art help, too, honestly. As does seeing more than just white dudes on the credits page.
Do I still go for nostalgia efforts? Yeah, sure, especially if I feel like they are least reviving something off the beaten path, or a game I know that I enjoy, tech be damned.
