Chrome Heavy RPGs, Why Bother?

Chrome in RPGs is nothing new. As you can see in the below article, back in 2014 it was heavily on my radar as something that overly irritated me. How do I feel two years later? ¬†Well, about the same. There is good chrome and there is bad chrome. I am of the belief that…
