    As for realistic games, look at cyberpunk

    When I hear “Cinematic vs. Realistic” I may as well be hearing “Fun vs. Boring.” But that’s me. Somebody else may take the opposite stance where the more realistic, the more fun. And everyone has their limits. Me for example, I can’t stand the D&D system where the chances of an expert in perception missing the obvious are very high like in the example you gave in this episode. Every game system has a lot of elements to balance, and none is ideal for everyone. The real challenge is balancing the players who each have wildly differing opinions on what’s fun and what is not fun. I can agree with Liz that PvP is not fun for me, but I don’t have her appetite for the emo-McMuffins.
