A fairly typical thing happened over at AICN's Tabletop column:
Is it just me or do terms like "modern design sensibility" and "insanely smooth" convey nothing?
It's interesting to see that the misguided quest to balance the character classes is apparently less of a priority this time around.
I guess I just don't understand what's wrong with the older editions -- or the numerous clones -- that puts off so many "modern" gamers. To put it another way: What makes anything WotC has done with the brand superior to previous versions of the game? Most of the responses to these questions seem to come in the form of empty phrases that purport to mean something but are never adequately explained, as though the same ad copy is being repeated over and over.
