Of pizzas and popes and mmo's

Just put a pizza in for supper - yes, fine cuisine is it not?

... and in my cognitive web of grey matter I couldnt help but think of Fr Guido Sarducci - SNL and his pope in the pizza remarks ....

... which eventually led me from humor to fun to pondering concepts of MMOs and the teeny tiny dungenrunners one i've been playing lately - the "schticks" get old with some of the equipment indentifiers in that game but once in a while a new one comes along that is good for a laugh or grin

- i can picture lil kids 'role-playing' in cardboard boxes as outfits/armor and with cardboard or plastic swords ... melee battle ensuing ... ah to be young again ... not really :) I am enjoying watching my daughter develop and grow and encounter situations for the first time :) children are like reliving/revisiting one's youth slightly differently

probably why I don't need so much escapism or 'adventure' in mmos but it's still nice - i ...have good morals and it just would be so wrong to slay thousands with an imbued sword but for some reason it can still be quite fun to do so in a game

i think part of that is the risk-reward besides the daydream/fantasy aspect;  i'll probably write a few posts over the next 2 weeks in the forums on concepts related to risk-reward in gaming etc

for now i'll wax nostalgic over  Diablo 2/LODs   "hardcore"
