Personal Thoughts on 4E.

I'm not a jerk, really.  I just play one on TV.  ;)
The reason I'm doing this as an indie post is to explain some of my view on things, and my general objections, and how it applies to not only 4E, but to some RPGs in general.  Everyone has their own dislikes and likes (and hey, if you want to reply on that here, that'd be awesome) when it comes to RPGs, and if you happen to like an RPG, cool.  If you don't, that's cool too.

I think my two disconnects with 4E D&D is 1) they took away options from the game, rather than adding them, and 2) they divorced the rules from the setting.  The game is more an abstraction rather than a literalism.  Both of these things very much bug me.
