Asked by philstar22:

Which fandom do you think has the best worldbuilding and why?

Tolkien, without a doubt. Considering the amount of time he had creating Middle-earth, going on years even after The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings were published, constantly extending and expanding the universe; creating actual made up languages and cultures and extensive histories for particular races in his universe, and continued doing so until the day he died (keep in mind that The Silmarillion wasn't even finished at that time, and there are possibly other works of his that he was working on that are never going to see the light of day), it's remarkable. Tolkien has become known as the master and grandfather of fantasy worldbuilding, it's quite extraordinary.
