RPG A Day 7: Most "Intellectual" RPG Owned


Day 7 Question - Most “Intellectual” RPG Owned

Scare quotes!

Hm. RPGs are by their nature cerebral and emotional, enlarging vocabularies, improving mathematical skills and encouraging social interaction. This is why roleplaying sees use in educational and therapeutic contexts.

But I have quite a few purposely highbrow games.

Vampire: The Masquerade for spreading ideas of story and theme and character?
Nobilis for the deconstruction of Jungian archetype and nihilism?
Polaris for the tight focus on recreating the inevitability of tragedy in the passing of a golden age?
Pendragon for the thorough analysis of Arthurian story and the discussion of history, myth and popular storytelling?
De Profundis for the Psychodrama section?

Yeah, De Profundis is probably a good bet here.
