If a GM is that great that someone wants to pay to play, more power to him. I'll pass on paying, though, as I view RPGs as a hobby to enjoy with friends. Nothing wrong with someone making money at it. Video gamers do it all the time.

Guilty pleasure movies = movies people actually enjoy as opposed to what they're told they're supposed to like. Kinda like how Star Wars is inferior to Annie Hall according to critics and the academy, yet I found the latter incredibly boring and unfunny while I can rewatch the former anytime.

I think you triggered the Pundit because he craves the recognition that Maliszewski got. Also, it's the usual "he's not a real grognard, I am!" stuff that the Pundit spouts defensively because it's well documented he got into RPGs later than many others and feels he has to prove his credentials. I still like his stuff, though.

Yeah, unkillable PCs with super powers is very old school all you naysayers!

+1 except you referred people to the Mongoose version, which is inferior to the original in every way imaginable.

So you fell for the fifth edition scam as well. Shame.

Oh the fake Satanic panic trope again...yeah, lived in that time, played RPGs, only time I ever heard about that was in hysterical news reports trying to drum up sales/viewers. So overblown. Even in catholic school no one gave a crap about D&D = Satan. Enough pretending this was a real thing.

Those examples miss the point entirely. It has nothing to do with the PC doing something "evil" or what have you and everything to do with the power of one player to utterly throw a game off the rails. Same thing could happen by a PC doing "good" and upsetting the applecart. And usually the real root of the problem is the GM who gets into this situation and then flounders.

What is the 4 in ID4? isn't it just ID? I remember seeing and hating that movie.
