There are definitely still people who buy into this stuff. We had a gamer in our group in college (early 2000s) who couldn't tell her parents she was playing D&D. But they also wouldn't eat devil's food cake... not joking.
Back in my hometown, the local game store owner got so many copies of Dark Dungeons, he started handing them out to his customers as gag gifts.
But my most personal experience with it was that my grandmother's church was still preaching that nonsense well into the 90s. But, despite being incredibly devout, my grandmother still trusted me enough to get me the Spelljammer boxed set for Christmas.
I never really managed to explain how much that meant to me, but it's one of my fondest memories of her.
