RPGs and hometowns

Someone once said that role-playing games had to have come from the midwest.

Looking at the editions of D&D, it is somehow unsurprising that the 1970s editions were creating in Lake Geneva while the 2000s edition were created in Seattle. (If I’m not mistaken.)

Similarly, GURPS seems somehow perfectly at home here in Austin.

How much influence does a game’s hometown have?
