I hear tell that from out of Gary's own mouth when asked about D&D 4e, his response was Paper [expletive deleted] Video Game. Unconfirmed. :) I tend to agree though... with that opinion. I like video games too, but it's definitely a light on player crunchiness mode of roleplaying, which suits the method actor gamer types because their tactical senses are abstracted away into various quick and easy card-based recipes for success.
I personally am a git'ard crunchy grognard favoring gamer. 4e is good for casual gamers, and it can be really fun if your DM can step outside of the training wheels that the system presents, which is really true of any pen & paper game. But the creative aspects that a crunchy system provides is ultimately more rewarding to me than having clearly defined class roles and niches to fill in a party. Still, you need healers, thieves, wizards and a good bunch of meat shields to get though most modules... :)
GURPS Dungeon Fantasy ftw. Make GURPS easy with templates and play Temple of Elemental Evil all the way through.
3 Gary. and despite his opinion on the quality of the game, he had a very good attitude about why people play, which solidly remained in his thoughts to the end. Sage.
