#RPGaDAY 2016 Day 24

What is the game you are most likely to give to others as a gift?

I feel bad giving people games I have or I want to play. There’s an implicit “we will do this together” in there, so I feel like I’m socially tying them to play the game with me lest they ignore the gift entirely. So the game I’m most likely to give is something I never want to play myself. Usually that’s because it’s designed for local multiplayer; in the last ten years I’ve played exactly five games with people in the same room, and three of those were one-offs. Other people don’t have this problem, so I don’t mind getting them games they can play with each other.

This does occasionally put me in the hilarious state of looking at a game and going “This looks fun. Do I have any friends who have friends? They can tell me stories about it.”
