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. :)
