A highly complex role playing game created by Gary Gygax a brilliant man who took wargaming and turned it into a highly enjoyable game that is so open ended that the players decide the fate of the campain more than any video game.
Unlike video games that claim "The player's decisions influence the story" this game actualy lives up to that claim. In video games there is a limited amount of diversions from the main story that can be influenced by the player, because the computer cant make up a story, or expand it. A DM can mould and change the story as the game goes wand each characters actions have real repurcussions on things on the large scale and small scale.
Its essentialy a game for people that are fed up with video games that require about as much mental power as it takes to breath.
