A number of great blogs have covered the Wizards of the Coast announcement of the upcoming D&D 5e game from WOTC, so I won't say much about the announcement or my thoughts on the development of the game. But I guess my initial feeling is simply apathy. I just don't have a need for it. At least not at the moment.
You see, I already have all my gaming needs covered quite well. If I want to play old-old school, I can bust out Swords & Wizardry or OD&D. If I want to play old-school, I can bust out AD&D or B/X. If I'm in the mood for a modern game, I can bust out Pathfinder.
So I just don't see the need for 5e in my world.
But am I a hater? Hell no! I wish WOTC all the luck in the world in producing a high quality game that will resonate with new and old gamers alike. I'm not some old, crusty grognard. In fact, my group played PF for a while last year.
It's just that my every possible gaming need is already met. And the internet is packed with low-cost or free gaming material that rocks! So my hard-earned dollars won't likely be spent on D&D the 5th.
