Oh,man. I liked the game that he helped create. All uber-nerds be saddened, for the creator of Dungeons and Dragons has passed.

I wasn't really into D&D, but many other pen & paper games might not have existed were it not for his influence. Truly we have lost a hero to the world, and already the world seems a little brighter (fear the light).

Computer RPGs as we know wouldn't exist either. The now cliche "knight and dragon" medieval worldview of many games wouldn't be as popular etc. His influence is really underrated all things considered.
