An article on Dungeons and Dragons in the Guardian today.

I post it only for it’s total crappery and complete misunderstanding of the game:

“If there’s anything guaranteed to mark you out as a hopeless geek, it’s surely an interest in role-playing games. They are a perfect storm of all the “non-manly” things, a combination of “female” imagination and childish let’s-pretend play with the too-clever-by-half, maths-based dice-rolling and the vague sense that games really should involve men sliding around in mud and grabbing other men’s taut, muscular thighs. Not to mention that role-playing games are co-operative rather than competitive and there’s never really a winner. Just imagine if that were an ethos we taught our children. I shudder to think.”


It is only the Guardian after all folks.
