D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 15

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

There hasn't really been an edition I didn't enjoy. However, I can honestly say that I loved 4th edition the least. I was so excited about the ideas behind the new edition, and I bought the core books on the first day they were released, and started a campaign the same day.

That campaign lasted a few months, and when it ended, the whole group asked to play something else. I've said before that I love the game, but it just wasn't as exciting at the table as it was in theory. Maybe I just wasn't adept enough as a DM to make the system and our play style meet somewhere in the middle. Maybe it was, as I've mentioned before, that there just wasn't enough content out for the system yet. Maybe my players just preferred older systems. I don't know. I do know that my players have never been as unimpressed with a system despite how pumped I was about getting to run it.
