OSR debate?

What's too debate? We are what we are and we play what we like. It's that simple. Well it's that simple for me because I have no idea what all the debate is about. I do have to comment that given recent qualifications; If you play a game published before 1989, my gaming group and I definitely qualify.


  1. I don't get the whole thing, either. It's a waste of time and energy. Find a game you like and play the shit out of it. Sell stuff, too, if that makes you happy.

  2. I play whatever my group and I feel like playing. Sometimes that an OSR game, sometimes its a brand new game. Its all about having fun.
    : )

  3. I agree with Christian. Back in the day we played AD&D for over 15 years with nearly the exact same crew. Though we house ruled quite a bit, we did indeed play the shit out of it. Had a great time.

    Skipped 2E, there was not enough there to entice us. 3E came around, we liked it, and now we have house ruled it and are playing the shit out of that. 4E does not entice us.

    Why our decisions about which version we like affect others, or pass judgment on others is well beyond me. Play what you like, drink what you like, sing what you like. Its all good.

    If someone starts an Third School Revival do I have to join? Not hardly.

  4. I propose we start the After School Renaissance in order to fight the rapidly mutating forces of the Old School Renaissance! My Midschool Gamer friends might be interested in joining, but don't ask the Newschoolers, their game rules are inferior to ours!

  5. How about a School House Rocks renaissance?
