#RPGaDay2015 Day 3 Favorite new game of the last 12 months?

My favorite New game in the last 12 months pick is going to be Dungeons and Dragons 5th Ed. For many people this was the edition that gave the setting a breath of life again. For me it was like welcoming a old friend back to the table. I had played 4th edition and I did not have many of the complaints that others have had over the years. Actually 4th Ed brought me back to the game table that I nearly walked away from entirely. But as I always have said for years. 4th Ed was a good game but it would have done better if it had never been dubbed D&D. Calling it Fantasy Tactics or Epic Encounters, anything other then D&D and the system would have been a better success then it was.

So why 5th E? It goes a long way to get back to the basics that made Dungeons and Dragons great. As well as wisely keeping many of the features from its predecessors that were good rules and applied them in was that felt right. I think one of the main reasons why D&D is as good as it is falls entirely to Wizards of the Coast taking the chance on the fans of Dungeons and Dragons. Reaching out to your community and saying we want your input on the game every step of the way. Made all the difference in the product. You can feel that input when you read these books.

If you have not taken the time to pick this product up because you are one of the many gamer’s that feel they were burned by 4th Ed. Do yourself a favor, give this edition the chance, pick it up give it a fair chance. I mean its FREE ! why not just take a look at it. I am willing to bet you will be very happy that you did if you do.
