Less immersive," and Hickman's statement that games haven't changed in 30 years, it becomes apparent that these guys really don't know anything about gaming circa 2013.
Really? I'm not sure they are wrong about the role playing part, sure there are a handful that push roleplaying, many push leveling and following a storyline instead.
If you don't stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front.
