Bethesda Softworks - Todd Howard on D&D
It's so quiet you can almost see the tumbleweeds - obviously everyone is already concentrating on Easter. So, to fill the gap a little, here's a really, really short interview with Bethsoft's Todd Howard on his memories of D&D, by way of a tribute to Gary Gygax at Level Up:
What do you remember about your first experience with Dungeons & Dragons?
My earliest memory was going with my brother to a game store called Conflicts and my parents dropping us off on a Tuesday night to play this “D&D” game. The next three hours were a revelation. It was like a new gateway into awesomeness was opened for me. This was the summer of 1978, if I remember right, and I was eight. I can recall counting the days until each Tuesday. It’s one of my favorite memories, of real bonding time with my brother and others.
