How bout you? 🙂
3 hour walk: "You arrive at your destination with no farther incidents"…

Battle against anything: "Um i think i'll cast this.. NO this.. wait.. what is the range touch for that? Ok I'll do that… Now what do i roll? Ok.. Wait is there a boulder in the way? Ok.. I change my mind.. I move.."

Don't get me started on my party opening doors!

yep.  This is me in pretty much ever RPG.

Do I have the right weapon equipped?  Wait, what is my armor rating?  Is the enemy weak to fire? …

A snake bit my cleric?!! WTF! I pull out my dagger and cut the bite open a little bit so I can suck the poison out.

That was my raddest moment ever in DnD.

Lol… Im not a dnd type but as far as games like skyrim are concerned, im all about the magic – use nothing BUT magic from the word go and seek out the mages imediately for trainimg and magic based quests… By the time ive learned the game controls and gotten used to the way the story and quests flow, nothing can stand in my characters path for long and almost certainly wont manage anything more than temporary wounding (healing spells ftw). Lol. Cant beat a quality console fantasy/scifi rpg game.

Ahhh yes.. this brings back great memories. So much truth to that statement.

It's kinda fun to really fuck with the dynamic. Play a barbarian who doesn't wait for anything. See a bear on the road, tackle it. Group arguing over a door, kick it in and run into the room. Watch how flustered the other players get without the pretense of planning.

There was once a game I was running where the entire gaming session (roughly 8 hrs) was a single combat.

It was insane  >.<

+Amanda Blain, I had a group where if I hadn't pushed them at their first T-Intersection in the dungeon, we'd still be waiting to make a decision… That was 20 years ago. 😉

Accurate, and those are the best sessions. Similarly, I've only taken one character to level 20 and it literally took years.  Good times.

Happens at every game session. And I don't blame my players for hesitating at doors, I have put a nasty trap on one or two; now they check every door. So, naturally, I have to "reward" their hard work.

I have a 16th Level Pit Fighter once… once. Started out a male half-giant, ended a female mul.

Yes, absolutely. I was DMing a game last year and one of the players, the sorcerer of the party, spent around twenty-thirty minutes on a single turn when, after he tossed a fireball at the enemy boat, we had to work through exactly what parts of the ship were damaged or destroyed, and how badly with each one.

I had a half-giant with a running proficiency, a dexterity of 16, and had been on the move for 5 rounds. My intent was to put the bullhorns to a small group of Orcs attacking a friend. It took us over an hour to work out the extent of the damage to all parties. Orcs = dead, friend = unconscious, tavern wall = demolished!

I used to be a pretty bad ditherer, but I'm a lot more "go with the flow" now.

God we couldn't even go into a Bar without spending 2 1/2 hrs. So we had special limits: hack and slash games (no thinking allowed just kill and loot) & RP games (waste tons of time doing nothing by roll playing every aspect of everything) ? that

For some, the process of planning is part of the joy of playing. I liken it to those who prefer constructed-deck card games, and will spend hours pondering card choices … Different perspective.

My current character is a ranger, who likes to take up rooftop positions. Rather than taking a round to climb down, I've been jumping down and tumbling (legal? Not 100% sure). But it's been working pretty well.

I bring this up, because when we get in situations in a dungeon, where everyone is wondering who will be the first down the rope into a cavern, he will most likely just jump in and hope for the best. That will probably be his undoing.

Timescale problems are a GM issue not a system issue.  Rules aside, it's your decision where you want to spend your time.  If your players don't enjoy 3 hours of intensely accurate combat, maybe loosen up and fudge some numbers.  If your party is really interested in a realistic depiction of wilderness survival, roll for that twisted ankle as often as you like!

I've had one round combats (6 seconds) take over an hour to resolve. Yeah, this is totally a DnD norm.

I remember the time I rolled a natural 20, the GM proclaimed it to be a "critical hit," looked something up on his charts, declared a "stat contest," in which I had to roll 3d6 against the GM's roll for the orc I had hit with the natural 20, I rolled low on the "stat contest," the GM looked something else up on his charts, and to make a long story short I ended up dead with zero chance of resurrection. It was at about that time that I switched to MMORPGs
