It's Just A Game

I started playing role playing games in 1981 with the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons game. (So I'm a geek. Get over it.) I enjoyed RPGs as games, nothing more. Since returning to RPGs on Google Wave last year, I've discovered that I'm definitely in the minority as far as treating it like a game. Many other players, mostly younger that I, describe RPGs with phrases such as "collaborative story telling," which I suppose is an attempt elevate RPGs to something more meaningful. Why bother? It's just a game. Enjoy it for what it is. Why is that so hard?
