Gary Gygax: 1938-2008

March 4, 2008

I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge today’s passing of Gary Gygax, age 69. He was the co-creator of the Dungeons and Dragons game, the grandaddy of all roleplaying games (RPGs).

I never played D&D, but I have played many turn-based role playing computer games, including World of Warcraft. The existence and continued popularity of all of these games are due in some part to Gygax’s imagination.

It is a sad day in the gaming world.
