Funny story

A number of years ago, I was running a HERO game at the local university gaming club. During one session, I met a guy as I was coming back from a vending machine run. Upon seeing all of us sitting around a table in a lecture hall, he asked what we were doing.

"Oh, we're playing Champions," I replied. At his blank look, I elaborated, "It's a roleplaying game."

He gave me an amazed look. "You mean, like, Dungeons and Dragons?"

"Sort of," I replied, expecting to explain the difference between superhero and fantasy RPGs. His response, however, left me speechless for a moment.

"You mean that you people actually play games with pencil and paper and not on a computer? That's so archaic!"

Archaic? *snorts and resumes RPing by banging rocks onto stone slabs*

Wait, you mean, you people actually socialize instead of spending all your time staring at a screen? That's so... lame!
