Thoughts from Across the Web on the 40th Anniversary of D&D
In just a few days, Dungeons & Dragons will celebrate its 40 anniversary, which has prompted people across the Web to reflect on what the game meant to them over the years.
Obviously, John and I have written a book about the impact of the game on computer game culture, which is one of the dominate digital entertainment forms of our lifetimes. We even hosted a little contest where people told us their favorite role-playing stories. But it’s interesting to read the game’s impact of individuals, whose stories all have similar themes.
