Great cast as usual guys. Definitely agree with the C-man about Cards Against Humanity (and Apples to Apples by extension). It was great and hilarious at first, but it’s just gotten stale for me at this point – I’d much rather play almost any other party game (like Taboo!) when there is a large group of people. I am also pretty interested in Neverwinter now, though I will probably never have the time to actually get around and play it…
My problem with Cards Against Humanity has been, for the longest time, that it’s given people an easy way to be funny without any effort. It goes back to the Southpark episode of how Family Guy got its jokes.
To me, it’s not that CaH is stale. It’s more like its a Game Genie for people wanting to be funny by saying horrible, inappropriate things: they could probably be funny on their own, but why put in the effort when you have a code book that you bought at K-Mart last week?
