While I think at times he wasn't able to move with the RPG industry and he kind of opened Pandoras box in a way. There is no doubt that his contribution to RPG's is immense. I played D&D and then AD&D as a kid until Robotech and Middle Earth were released. When I started playing all three. 69 was to young.

I read this last night after flying in from Chicago and was a little sad. With out Gary Gygax I am not sure what my hobbies would be. I have played D&D on and off for 20+ years not to mention the countless books I have read based on D&D characters and settings. The great and not so great computer games that have come out that much to my wife's dismay have sucked me in currently Neverwinter Nights 2 which i am playing but also creating a module.

He will be missed but is Legacy lives on.
