Offending the Other Half

A friend suggested that I offend the other half of the Internet by posting about D&D 4.  So...why not?

At World Con, I learned something fascinating about D&D 4.

Up until now, I'd heard nothing but bad things about it. My D&D playing friends abhor it. But a guy who plays with kids told the following story:

He runs a game for kids at a local shop. He found that the modern kids have trouble following roleplaying games...unless he starts with D&D 4, which looks like their online games. Then, suddenly, they get it. Then he can lead them on to playing other games.

It's like an entry drug.

I still don't like the fact that WOFC is not supporting the earlier versions...but at least now I don't think they are crazy headless maniacs.
