6 Things MMOs Owe to D&D

The passing of Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons is a true loss not just to the pen-and-paper or traditional RPG industry but to the entire gaming community.

There is much that we owe D&D - part largely to Gary’s ideas and imagination. From the rudimentary rules of miniatures war gaming, Gary culled the rules for the first D&D system. He, together with Dave Arneson, opened the universe to gaming. Imagine what fantasy gaming, video games and MMORPGs would be like without D&D and without Gary’s legacy?

What a bland landscape that would be. There wouldn’t be any Lynx, no Cloud or Final Fantasy and certainly WoW would never have been conceived.
