4th Edition D&D was my introductory edition for not only D&D but RPGs in general. As a full noob, it was new and exciting for me. I had nothing to compare it to. As a new player I also didn’t concentrate on the lore or much actual role play. My time was mostly spent learning and understanding the mechanics. Two things that I remember irking me were all of the book releases for the classes, not that that stopped me from buying them, and also the Feat system. There were approximately 7342 Feats to sift through. I did love the online character builder.
All that being said, now that I am deeply entrenched in 5th Edition, I have something to compare to 4th Edition. I love 5th Edition. In my opinion it seems to have a darn near perfect mix of quality game mechanics and role play ability. I have played and seen played, some truly entertaining and engaging characters. I’ll never dump on 4th ed the way that the OG players do but I will concede that 5th ed is a superior system.
