What Makes a Good (RPG) Player?

Over on Tom G's Go Forth and Game blog, he recently did an interview with Jess Hartley, where one of the questions intrigued me.


With regard to role playing games, what are some aspects of a good player?

**Good is such a judgment call. It can mean different things to different people. As for me, the kinds of gamers I like to interact with put the group’s fun on an even footing with their own personal success. They don’t mind when the rules take a back-seat to the story, or when something bad happens to their character if it means building a better story. I like playing with folks who laugh a lot, don’t nit-pick about the “small stuff” and who realize that a game is just a tool for having fun.


I just want to say here that I totally agree with Jess's thoughts here, and she said it way better and more succinctly than I ever could. Great job, Jess. :)
