Lead ‘graph from In Defense of Dungeons & Dragons:
A D&D session probably calls to mind the following: a group of overweight, awkward men who have no social lives. They spend weeks locked in a parent’s basement, blissfully unaware of reality.
As stupid as that is, it’s completely true. That it’s the stereotype, that is.
Anyway, the article is a little rough around the edges and the comments are, for the most part, even rougher.
