Quite simply. Pen and paper RPGs require social interaction. CRPGs do not, therefore win by quite a margin.

But the scoail interaction's the GOOD part. Nuthin' like getting a group of friends together and screwing around in D&D. That's how you come up with items like "The Skull of Explodey" and "Aunt Jemima's Syrup Tome."

Besides, if you've got decent drawing skills, you can make your charries look like whatever the hell you want instead of being limited to 5 facial choices.  :P
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

Agreed with Harvey! While CRPGs are fun, real RPGs are actually quite a lot more interesting.

Well me neither. And i don't think Morrowind counts. I wasn't role-playing so much as kicking daedric ass. I think i lack the patience to sit around drawing dungeons and rolling dice and making shit up as i go along and painting figurines and spending years on massive campaigns with intricate rules and inflated atmospheres of pretension.
