I know people still do. I do it. I’m just worried how this trend will be over the next 20 years if everyone is expected to show up to play with a tablet. I am very far from a teen today. And I am looking at having a table built that can be used as an electronic map with miniatures so I don’t have to make physical maps anymore.Pandemic aside, you can still do all of this. A lot of people do. Until the pandemic, that's how I've always played (and taught others to play). There's just more variety now. Some of my players will always show up with dice and a sheet. Heck, right now, while we're playing online, most of us still roll real dice.
Only in some people's minds does more options make the old options "obsolete".
One of my players used to miss the game every time he had to fly away for work - I expect that now that we've learned to play online, we'll just have one of us bring a laptop when he misses and have him play by zoom while the rest of us play at the table. That'll be nice.
