This is our class blog for English 110 at The Ohio State University branch campus in Marion, Ohio.
It was very evident that you guys were very passionate about the topic, and the opening was great! I also liked how you gave Gary credit for his influences on the gaming world, on fantasy books, and on Hollywood. You both were the best speakers of the day, and the "satanic panic" part.
You guys got my attention from the very start. Good job at speaking, you both seemed very confident while presenting. I didn't know who Gary Gygax was but learned that he had a major influence on fantasy book, games and movies even to this day with his creation of the game Dungeons and Dragons.
Your AGD was good. very funny, and caught my attention well. It was crazy to think how many people actually have experienced DnD
Dude solid opening, haha you for sure got my attention. Very passionate which makes for a more interesting speech.
I didn't realize how much of an influence Gary Gygax and Dungeons and Dragons had on literature and films. It was really interesting to hear about how much this game really inspired. You both were very passionate about the topic which brought your presentation up a level.
I loved how you incorporated the fact that DND inspired fantasy, especially in literature. It was surprising to discover that Ann ___(I forget her last name) wrote only 7 books about fantasy before DND, then wrote 76 afterwords! You guys caught the audiences attention from the very start- good job!
The opening brought our attention to the presentation. Even though many of us are not into that sort of thing, it made us interested. I found the video funny as it was horrible acting and poor quality, but very relevant. Was that Tom Hanks?Both seemed passionate about the game and it's creator. Both knew the content very well and could answer follow up questions.
I liked how you guys started out your presentation. It was very interesting and i enjoyed it. I learned a lot about the game as you described it and that Gary Gygax was a Co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons. Great job.
It was good that you guys chose something you enjoy, it made me feel like you were happy to give the presentation. It was also a very good beginning, it got our attention and engaged us into your presentation.I had no idea that this was the first game that you could pick your own story line in also.
Great job! The intro to your presentation was awesome and you guys were very confident when giving your speech i could hear everything you said and you were great at commanding the attention of the class room.
I have never played dungeons and dragons, but it sounds great game. I would love to play a game without rules bogging me down and a game that allows for some sort of creative strategy. The presentation was well delivered through great enthusiasm.
Your intro was so great!, and funny!!, your powerpoint was great along with your clip you showed. Both had great voice tone and eye contact.
I had a little trouble telling whether this presentation was about Gary Gygax or Dungeons and Dragons. Never the less the presentation was informative and filled with facts such as Gary Gygax holding conventions in his own home for many of his fans. The speakers were enthusiastic about the topic and it really showed with the personal input you guys put in.
