I can’t speak for tabletop RPGs, but many, if not most, video games have both damage and instant death. For instance, in Mirror’s Edge you take damage from falls and bullets… but certain areas which are very far down (I believe it’s the ground, but in that game you don’t see a whole lot of it) will kill you instantly no matter how slowly you hit them. Suchlike things are found in games beyond count. Why am I saying this? Because having Mike roll a bunch of percentile dice… I thought of it, but it seemed redundant. Why do it if the result is going to be obliteration anyway? Whatever.
