I'm so disappointed with this PAX East reveal. When this game was announced it was to be a true 4th edition D&D game. The FIRST 'true' 4th edition game. We had so many fantastic 1st, 2nd and 3rd edition PC games over the year, some more accurate than others but they all at least resemble the PnP game. But for some reason, the edition of D&D that is perhaps most easy to adapt to a game, from the clearly laid out rules to the heavily tactical combat (it's what 4e does right after all).
Instead we get these blasted action RPGs where the only thing that resembles D&D are the names of the classes and the locations. Everything else has completely been changed. The combat is utterly different, the games mechanics are completely changed.
Some might say 'it's because 'classic' style RPGs just don't sell anymore'. But that is simply not true. Dragon Age: Origin, perhaps the last of the 'classic western RPG' has sold more than any other Bioware game, up to 5 million as of last count. That is nearly TWICE sales of any other game they've ever made.
So come on game developers. Quit screwing around with D&D and make a proper 4th edition game. The LAST thing we need is yet another 'you press a button and something awesome happens' action-RPG. Let alone a damn hackneyed MMO!
