To a degree, Martin Scorsese is making a similar argument to Dan's. Movies are more than just Marvel (or Disney if you want to go even bigger). There are people who only go see Disney movies. And that's ok. Doesn't mean I cannot enjoy non-Disney movies AND enjoy Disney movies. Doesn't mean I cannot patiently and repeatedly try to introduce people to other great filmmakers, styles, genres, etc. Same thing applies to D&D and RPGs.
Oh his argument is FAR more elitist and dismissive than that. Scorsese makes movies I don't want to watch so I don't exactly hold his opinion in high regard, but the things he has said dismissing Marvel movies I find to be the worst kind of elitism.
Agreed. Scorsese is making the most elitist version of this argument. IF Dan were making the same argument, he would say something like, "D&D is not a real role playing game like... Rifts." Dan did not say that. Dan just said, "D&D is not the only role playing game."
I kinda want to draw some venn diagrams but I will refrain...
