Welcome to the third episode of the Play On Target podcast (PLOT for short). In this episode your hosts visit the RPG Geek list of Top Ten RPGs and we each pick one game to discuss the things we think cause these games to be rated so highly. We had a great time talking about these 4 great games; Call of Cthulhu, Fiasco, Apocalypse World, and Deadlands revised 2nd edition, and we hope you enjoy listening to the discussion. Did we get anything wrong? Did we misrepresent your favorite game? Let us know in the comments or start a discussion on RPG Geek.
