Yes...and your point?
The point is that fanatics, think their personal preference is somehow an objective reality, when it is not, and will go on long tirades, against any perceived slight of their object of worship.
Oh...sorry! I thought you were talking to ME so you can understand my confusion here. I now see you were talking to some other guy who evidently 'worships' something, is trying to think their "personal preference" is "somehow object reality", etc.
In my defense though you should be more clear about who you are replying to and quote them precisely so there is less confusion.
Just because you think that RQ is "the very best at emulating heroic fantasy" doesn't mean that it actually is.
AGAIN please use the quote function here so there is no question as to what I said and in what context.
Do you have any argument for D&D being well designed? Because so far you have given none and instead wish to keep pounding on straw men (AGAIN this is a logical fallacy/error in reasoning which invalidates your entire attempt at defending your position). No dodging behind making bald assertions about what I might think or believe. Stick to the points/arguments.
Even it was, it doesn't follow that this makes for a more fun game.
"Fun" is a useless qualifier here. Like "beauty" or "coolness". What the issue is here is how well these RPGs achieve what they set out to do which is to emulate heroic fantasy. D&D is the most (unnecessarily) complicated and yet the poorest at emulating heroic fantasy, from as objective a POV as one can achieve.
I haven't encountered RuneQuest zealotry before, but really it's both more silly and annoying than Linux Zealotry.
You have encountered none here either. You have me mistaken for someone else. I have plenty of criticisms of RQ as well. My point in bringing it up was because it was a well known game and was literally considered the 'Gold standard' in RPG design EVEN by most of D&D's writers/authors for decades. I figured there was a better chance of you being familiar with it and able to actually provide some insight here. Alas...
