|Henry Sellers: He made the BBC!|
Instead, you get a fairly even-hand article that highlights both the popularity and the madness of the hobby, with both fans and critics being asked their opinions such as the former staffer's complaint that you need £200/€230 to play a decent-sized game a very valid one. It was interesting to see this though:
How many other British companies, for example, could report a 40% rise in their latest half-year pre-tax profits?
Does this mean that pop culture will soon be featuring 40k references ala WOW, or will it take a succcessful MMO or next series of Space Marine/Dawn of War games to get that final push so that the general population is aware of the existence of GW's Spehs Mahreens.
And is the butt of more jokes - like the WOW virginity ones. Obviously. Now, it's off to type up Itzacon battle reports.
Quick Update: As highlighted on B&C (post 22) the BBC have responded to comments, and possibly female criticism, and have edited the title of the article over the course of the day from:
Why do grown men still play with toys?
Why are grown men still launching tabletop war?
Why are adults still launching tabletop war?
