HeyPoorPlayer's Burt Hopkins Writes- To understand why I love this game, you must first understand that Shadowrun has been a part of my life for nineteen years. It was handed down to me from my father, who ran our first tabletop session of it for myself and a few of my friends when I was around fourteen or fifteen. I’ve watched the IP of the franchise grow and evolve. I’ve seen it go through several publishers. I’ve read the books, I’ve played the tabletop games, I played the Genesis game, hell, I even played the shitty FPS shooter that Microsoft released (the only occasion in which Shadowrun let me down).
