But he listened to Korn before he played Angband, really? And no reference to Moria? Tsh tsh.


Edit: He listened to Korn at all, really? That was a mistake.

I don't know about you, but I got my first copy of Moria off of AOL; my dad was a beta-tester for the service.

Dammit I rushed to this site to post this, but Nick beat me to it.

It is pretty cool though. I bet he hasn't played v4

Holy shit I didn't even notice that. Being referenced by Randall Munroe is pretty reasonable nerd cred for Angband.

I prefer to think that it reflects well on his nerd cred

Nerd cred works somewhat symbiotically, but it's true that angband has been around longer.

Haha! Fair enough.

When I started playing in, I think, 1993, there was one terminal at school that was connected to the internet. But you could only use it if you were doing electronics A-level. The rest of us had to pass round floppy disks of Angband in a clandestine fashion.
