While we're at it, maybe we could get some agreement on where the term RPG originated. I've always felt it started with Gary Gygax and D&D, but all the facts surrounding it seem to be in dispute.

Some guy on the Bethesda forums once claimed he played his first RPG as a child, and it was a game about teddy bears, playing house. Not much action there, I imagine. And that was sort of his point, that it was a "true RPG" because it wasn't an "aRPG".

Sometimes I think there are just too many letters.
