First off, there are not enough infographics out there about Dungeons and Dragons, will someone send me one if they find a good one please? Second, screw this infographic. It started off really well with where the term “geek” came from, good deal! Then continues over to Geekus prime and onto computer geek; nothing is said about the computer geek, which is a very important geek, because he is what the internet geek is based upon!
Also, I am very annoyed by the book geek as I’m sure others are. Harry Potter, Narnia and Twilight are so general, all walks of life read those books, and the Lord of the Rings are perhaps more “geeky” but still very popular. What about Sci-fi books? Or old mediaeval times books? — So much more of a geek fest genre.
The artist got a little lazy on the “geek Chic” because these are not variants of geek chic, a theatre geek doesn’t dress that way to be ironic — a theatre hipster might. A food geek doesn’t dress that way either. These are more just hobbies people have. These are all things really upsetting me. I wouldn’t have had to complain about all this if someone had just made a decent D&D infographic.
By the way, I am playing my first game of Dungeons and Dragons today, and I cannot wait. Any advice will be appreciated.
