Gygax’ Eternal Legacy

Alvan Monje posted on Gamasutra what is the most well-written analysis of where modern video games come from. Dungeons & Dragons: The Pen and Paper Video Game. I especially love the description of how video games are limited; you can only have so much exposition or go into buildings that have been created and designed. In a non-digital world, it can be improvised, and there isn’t a limit on the world that players can explore, build, and so forth.
