on the other hand, [GEEKALERT]a few years ago i played D&D with some old vets, had a chance to DM for a few months, and i quite enjoyed holing up with some graph paper and some booze and drawing up the campaign, writing up NPCs and dungeons and so forth (i enjoyed drawing up the campaign a lot more than i enjoyed putting that bunch of whiners through it, quite frankly). it sounds like this disgaea game might appeal to someone with a DM temperament. [/GEEKALERT]
Snag Disgaea 3 for cheap, then, and give it a try.

in the meantime, these dragons are starting to piss me off. so's my girlfriend, who i'm having fight all my battles for me. (They gave me a sexy elf lackey who follows me around all over the place and starts firing arrows at whatever enemies crop up, and she's a better shot than me so i've taken to cowering behind her, letting her absorb the hail of ax-blows, and just laying hands on her periodically to replenish her health. It's not terribly noble, I admit, but it's better than newt gingrich. he uses his daughters.)
anyway, thing is, every time i sense a fight might be beyond my capabilities, i try to run away, but my computerized girlfriend, behind whom i was cowering, stays and fights to the death. and if i let her die i no longer have anyone to cower behind, so i always run back and die too so i can go back to the last saved game.
hmm. now that i've typed out this problem i've thought of a possible solution: i'll try and cast "fear" spells on her to get her to break off the melee! victory through cowardice. that's my approach. I'll let you know how it works out, if i can summon up the mettle.

that's probably true. i play on the PS3 and spend most of my time scrolling up and down my massive inventory, which for some damn reason you can't sort. you have to file through unalphabetized items. it's pretty maddening, and why after a couple months of obsessive playing i now just become very sad and exhausted every time i even contemplate putting my skyrim disk in.
make no mistake, i do think it's a good candidate for best overall videogame ever made, but all bethesda games become a bit maddeningly OCD after a while.

Oh, trust me, I'm on your level there. I spent so much time with my pip boy displayed in FO3 and in NV. I have those both for the PS3. Half the reason I've decided to wait until the computer is done is because of how much time I've spent organizing my stuff in Fallout and in Oblivion.
