Inside Dungeons and Dragons  
This bit by the Dead Ale Wives has been a classic with my gamer friends for years. We have been known to run through pretty much the whole thing from memory at the drop of a hat. This video does a really great job of syncing up video from several different anime to the audio to make it just that much more awesome. So very much of this is true and I really feel for the poor DM after having been one myself.

I am in awe of their mad syncing skillz!

Never playd D&D; having seen this, I think it's lucky (for the other players) that I've never tried, because if I experienced this level of faffing around, there'd be a Meido Zangetsuha clearing the room.

This? Is pretty normal level. They left out the person reading Knights of the Dinner Table (often me, heh) or gaming manuals during the slow bits of the game, the person who wanders out to the livingroom and starts flipping through the DVD collection of the DM and asking to borrow stuff, the long discussion of where we are going to order lunch from, the argument over the rapid fire rules for archers (how accurately DO they model real combat?), and a random discussion on do it yourself weapons of destruction (bathtub plastique, arbolists, poisons, etc.). There should be at least one "No shit, there I was..." story about a past game, a real life miliary experience, or something that happened at an SCA event.

*snorf* So a D&D event is basically a kitchen party that happens to have a game board on the table?

Weeeel, D&D does not require a game board.
