IMHO a lot of the GM vs players mentality can be laid at the feet of one module: Tomb of Horrors. Some people try to claim it is "thinking players" dungeon but those who have gone through the module as written regard it as a kill fest with many false trails.

It even inspired the ultimate GM vs players series: the Grimtooth Trap which effectively had Grimtooth's Dungeon of Doom as its capstone. As bad as Tomb of Horrors was it looked like a Sunday school picnic by comparison to Dungeon of Doom.

Today you could say it wasn't D&D but SCP and everyone was D class. ;-)
