On the decline of the DnD CRPG

Source

The Escapist, once a respected site about gaming culture and now a sort of pamphlet that you flick through while waiting for Zero Punctuation to be updated, has released a short article by Andy Chalk about the decline of the DnD CRPG.

Quote:
And while I know I can't change what D&D has become, I can most definitely change what I do with it. So I tossed all this multi-class sissy stuff out the window and I built me a Fighter. Massively muscled, single-classed and perhaps not the brightest soul you'll ever meet, I like to solve my problems by hitting people. Or hitting things. Now and then I'll mix it up by hitting people with things. Sometimes I'll do it in the service of a higher cause, occasionally I'll even swing my sword in the name of a particular deity - and sometimes maybe because I just don't like the way you're looking at me. But whether I'm the Red Blade of Tempus or the half-drunk jerk at the end of the bar, it's my character and I'll do it my way, thanks - because building a character isn't half as much fun as being one.
The article isn't really long enough to go into much depth and I'm not sure what he's really driving at (perhaps some sort of video game form of libertarianism...?), to be honest, but it's worth a read if you want a break from the E3 frenzy.

I 'gin to be a-weary of the sun,
And wish the estate o' the world were now undone.
