You won’t be surprised to find that I disagree with you. However, instead of making the same arguments that are happening ad nauseum over the Internet right now, perhaps you can stay what IS D&D to you? I’m tempted to make a similar post.

I liked Justin Alexander’s post.

@Dave D&D is an escape into my imagination. I use the rules as a way to go there. When the rules get in the way of doing that, I lose my interest in the game.
To be honest, I haven’t played enough of 3/3.x to love it/hate it. I just remember D&D from my youth and from how we played it – if the rule was stupid, we threw it out. If it worked, we used it.

@Dave Lol! We never agree, do we?! You’re right, I that’s a good topic for a post. I’ll add it to my todo list.
@Alex Justin’s good at the analysis in particular. A good blog to watch.
@Chgowiz It doesn’t surprise me what we have similar tastes at all I’ve played more than enough 3e though to love it, then hate it, then love it again. I suspect that for all my grumbling, it’ll be just the same with 4th Edition.
