Don’t Like D&D Fourth Edition? Beware the Moving Goal Posts — 3 Comments

  1. I loved AD&D when I first started playing it.

    I hated AD&D after a few years.

    A few years later, I enjoyed it again.

    When 3e came out, I thought it was the perfect form of D&D.

    A few years later, I found I preferred classic D&D to 3e.

    So, where should the goal posts be?

    I guess we all always have the right to state our opinion, but we should also be clear about the experience it’s founded upon.

    And—here’s the hard part, at least for me—we should respect each others opinions. (^_^)

  2. Respect each other’s opinions? I wish more people would, especially on something as subjective as whether or not one likes a particular game. It’s like a favor of ice cream, it’s not a crime to like it, nor to not like it. Unfortunately, where 4E is concerned, too many people online seem to feel that it is a crime to feel differently that they do about it.

    Hear, Hear!

    I think this is very much a problem as the noisiest folks out there have brutally supressed the middle.
    Nowadays, you express an opinion about 4e and you’re seen as siding with those who think 4e killed the hobby or those who think 4e is so great you have to just try it “the right way”, which is often elsuive in it’s description.
