Day 15: What was the first edition of D&D you didn't enjoy? Why?

Well, that would be 4th Edition.

And here's why: It doesn't *feel* like D&D to me. It feels like a D&D skin over World of Warcraft.

Now, this is not necessarily a bad thing - Hey, if it brought people into the hobby, then that *is* a good thing. But it wasn't for me, and is part of the reason I turned to Pathfinder.

I know a lot of people agreed with me. And a lot of people disagreed with me. This is why we have more than one game system at our FLGS, right?

Day 16: Do you remember your first edition war? Did you win?

Does anyone really win in a war? ;-)

To be honest, I've never been involved in any such thing. By the time such things became "commonplace", I was already of the opinion that the system was less important than whether or not people were having fun. I may have systems I prefer over others, but anytime arguments break out over which game/edition is better, I just walk away.

I think [livejournal.com profile] muskrat_john said it well in this Dork Tower strip.

Day 17: First time you heard that D&D was somehow "evil"?

It would have to be Mazes and Monsters. I had been playing for a while when I saw that, and knew it to be bullshit, even then. Fortunately, so did my parents. It was obvious to me even then that the people in question had their own huge sets of problems - the game was not the real problem.
