Why is Descent so popular in Germany?

Post by Xfing » Sat Jan 28, 2017 5:00 pm

I couldn't help but notice that most of the Descent community websites are based in Germany. Why is it that Germans took to liking a moderately successful American game so much?

I know some people or things just happen to be popular in certain countries, like for example David Hasselhoff (also in Germany) or Heroes of Might and Magic III in Russia (though that is probably motivated economically). So why is it? :D

I can say that of course, Descent is quite specific game. In her or love at once, or can not play.
In Russia, as well as everywhere else. Pretty little interest. But I do know for sure that there are still many hidden gamers who will play and not talk about it.

There was also a French love affair with Jerry Lewis.

Can you explain that?
