There should generally be more Vampire RPGs based on the World of Darkness (if that's what it's called) universe. You hearing me Bethesda?
... there should be more WOD inspired games in general. Anyone for a good "Changeling: the Dreaming" RPG
? (Though I'd rather see "Changeling" as a point-and-click adventure game.)
Anyways, about Vampire. Back in the days I used to play the Masquerade (but no LARPs, sorry) and enjoyed it a lot. What I liked about "Bloodlines" is that it suceeded in getting the gothic punk mood right (unlike "Redemption", IMHO). The characters, the setting, even the music - it all fitted in nicely.
The plot is truly awesome. I still thought it's great after 2,5 times I've been through the game...
...Not playing, of course, but watching TeeGee (2 times) and my brother (0,5 time) play it. My only take on VTMB, was when I wanted to engage in a dialogue with someone at a bar while TeeGee was out of the room. I got the buttons mixed up and slashed the person in half, instead
EDIT: Noticed how the Anarchs at the The Last Round bar keep tapping their fingers to the rhytm, while the song already ended? This sight never failed to bring me heaps of joy :D. I'm a simple person.
