    Comparison of RPG systems

    Last April I posted the first in a series of articles called Comparative Character Generation.

    I've completed, or should I say abandoned, another in the series, giving my take on d20 systems. Maybe somebody will find it interesting.

    Some may find it kind of harsh on d20, but remember I'm evaluating d20 for my own purposes, not as an objective review.

    Passages

    In the article I briefly mention the game Passages. Coincidentally, RPGnet has a review of Passages this morning. It does as well or better than I could.

    I feel that people (reviewers) are not harsh enough about D20 and generally D&D all around. I think they tend to be afraid to say anything bad about the game because of they might lose support for their reviews or opinion. Kind of sad really.
    I do not play them here or there, I do not play them anywhere, I do not play them with a fox. I do not mash that button box. I do not like MMO games. In the end ther're all the same.

    Thumbs up

    jade von delioch beat me to the answer. Oh well, i agree with jade on this one. rpg reviewers seem to know/believe that brutal honesty with d20 will lessen their credibility. Too bad, really. I'd love to see some harsh/brutal truth in reviews, especially with the d20 system.
