In my local comic shop, there is an entire room dedicated to people playing RPG's. You see quite a mixed crowd in there...non-descript high school kids, normal looking dudes, and guys with Chewbacca-like hair who wear their trenchcoats in July. I stick to a budget, so comics and video games are pretty much my hobby.
Xbox Live Arcade recently released a Magic: The Gathering game. I saw it, and was feeling a little RPG nostalgic, and bought it. It's not an RPG in the same sense as D&D or anything, in that it's a card game. Holy crap is it fun!! I am addicted to this freakin' game and probably will be for quite some time.
Side note: I was looking at the comic shop and checking out their Magic cards in the glass case. I saw a couple for 300 dollars. I about shat myself. Wow.
Anyway, 5 out of 5 mana cards. This game rocks.
Here's a card that costs a couple bucks.
Ahhh, the Black Lotus card. I typed "Black Lotus" into my search engine and came up with some pretty different stuff. Most of them were worth more than $3,000.
That is crazy. Even if I won a huge lotto, like a 50 million+ deal, I still couldn't buy that without my wife slapping the crud outta me.
