Quotes

"[Gary Gygax] was the Stan Lee, the Orson Welles, of gaming. He didn't invent the concept of games, of course, but he (and his co-designer Dave Arneson) reinvented them in novel ways that caught fire in the hearts and minds of people around the globe. Without him, the world would be a lot duller, and I would have probably wound up punching a clock somewhere as a systems analyst." -- Matt Forbeck
