The Fantasy Question Again

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. 

On other sites, Moorgard offered up his own views on the subject, while over on Nerfbat, the simple truth was revealed.

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?

Cheers!
