Bet of the Moving Pixels Podcast: The Evolution of Hack and Slash
This week the Moving Pixels podcast looks back at a discussion of the evolution of the dungeon crawl from its social aspects and etiquette to its mechanics and playstyle.
Dungeons & Dragons might be its low tech form, but video games have not strayed far from the formula of getting some friends together, killing some monsters, and collecting loot. From Gauntlet to Diablo to Torchlight, the hack and slash game is an experience both social and individualistic, steeped ironically in both greed and co-operation.
