Over on Terra Nova, Dr. Richard Bartle brought up the simple question, “Why Fantasy?”
There is a fair stream of comments in response to his post.
This is the sort of topic I like to dig into myself, except I did so not too long ago, when CCP CEO Hilmar Petursson asked a similar question.
So, in the spirit of recycling, I offer up my old post in response to the current round of this question:
Why So Much Fantasy?
