PostSubject: R.I.P. Gary Gygax   Fri Mar 07, 2008 11:06 pm

This past tuesday (March 4th 2008) Gary Gygax died in his home in wisconsin some of you may know his name and others may not but he was the game designer that basicly made the table top RPG dungeons and dragons.

Love it or hate it the game shaped our role playing culture all over the world and was the foundation for original RPG's such as final fantasy and dragon quest not to mention countless dungeon crawl style games on the early pc such as wizardry and bards tale to name a few.

It is my whole hearted belief that were it not for D&D and similar games that followed gaming would not be what it is today, no mmorpgs like WoW etc since most of these people that designed the games grew up playing table top or early games for the nintendo or PC.

The gaming world lost a great pioneer this week.
