Delta Green article in Forbes

Recommended Posts

Intrigued, but the webpage was unreadable due to the quantity and intrusiveness of the pop-up commercial advertisements.  "Quality journalism," indeed, Forbes.

Boo.

Adblockers are your friends... but you didn't miss much if you're already a DG player, as it was basically a short presentation and historical recap of Delta Green as a game, and what books are available now with the new edition. It's great to see it get exposure like that, though, and I didn't even know Forbes ran a gaming column. Hopefully that will translate to more horror gaming sales... now where's that Critical Role Delta Green one-shot?!

No!  Forbes was onto my use of Adblocker and blocked the content until I turned it off.  Then the barrage of pop-up videos and sidescroll advertisements began.

That said, I got far enough into the article to see that it was nothing new to me.  But, yeah, Forbes, WSJ, Business Review -- they're all making an effort to show that popular culture is, in fact, part of the consumer markets they report on.  Probably due, in no small part, to the fact that several prominent figures in business today grew up on things like television sitcoms, RPGs, console games, and sports, and discuss them openly.  Who'd-a-thunk?

While it’s great that DG is receiving this attention—Arc Dream can now quote a Forbes article in their ads and marketing—the article comes from a Forbes “contributor”, rather than a staff writer.  (Here’s a fuller explanation of how the contributor program works from a member.). I’d be very interested to know how many clicks this directs to delta-green.com and drivethrurpg and how it improves Delta Green’s Google search.
