4E sucks.
Stick with 3.5, or head right to Pathfinder.

I played D&D years ago, early 90s, and I loved it. My wife asked me about it years ago, because she really didn't understand how it worked and what the big deal was all about. After I explained it to her, she looked at me with a really confused look for a second and asked "Then why do people make so much fun of people who play? It seems to me like the level of imagination and concentration is more than you need for any video game. I'm actually impressed.". I knew I married her for a reason.

I'll never find another group for gaming that fits me as well as that early one did, but I enjoyed the ever-lovin' shiat out of games like Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights, so I can always hope that they come out with another one that follows D&D rules... I'm glad to see that the game is still going strong.

DnD Next might be good. Might.

It might be, but Pathfinder still is, so Paizo will continue getting my money.

Paizo turned one of the greatest coups in board games' industry history.  Wizards got them to make a bunch(expensive when you're paying people to make it) of 3.5 content right before they dumped 4.0.  Paizo was slated to go out of business on their "pathfinder campaign setting," but they capitalized on nerd-rage and resold pathfinder as an actual improvement on 3.5, leaving wizards of the coast in the dust.

I still buy wizard products sometimes, like maps or minis, but their system bites, so paizo wins.

3.5/Pathfinder.  Better rules mechanism, no more make-it-up-on-the-fly rolls, and much better standard of writing for published adventures.

Has anyone mentioned that Pathfinder is the best version of D&D that's been created?  Oh, they have?  Well, then.  Carry on!

Jgok: And this bit FTFA: "A striker like a barbarian is going to obliterate a controller like a wizard."

What kind of crack are they smoking? Maybe if the wizard is an idiot, or if they start the fight already toe-to-toe. Any caster going into pvp will prep the spells they need to keep other players away.

How much have you used 4th edition?
