What I'm Hearing
"human beings are pattern recognition machines"
What I'm Saying
"Gamers have long been, and remain, I think, pretty willing to open their wallets for evocative text. But I think indie games have had an effect on that and it's changing, and that increasingly folks are expecting interesting mechanical and authorial experiences from roleplaying. (Have you seen an online conversation about suspension of disbelief in the past year? Me neither. Roleplaying is increasingly less about losing yourself to someone else's authorial mojo.)"
