I have watched a lot of 2e edition, played 5e for about 2 years now and have some 4e experience. I liked all of them but 5e is the one I love and adore.
My Favorite Edition
As I said 5e is my favorite edition. I learned the game from watching 2e and to be honest I ever completely grasp those rules so I was a bit intimidated to start playing.
Those streams I watched also started playing 5e and after multiple sources saying how easy it was I had no choose but to also jump upon the bandwagon.
Dungeons and Dragons 5e was my first ever RPG so it will forever have a special place in my hearth and memories. My best and my worst stories come from that game and every week with every game we play new stories make me love it even more.
As a DM it’s also just very easy to homebrew. Don’t like the rules for long rest, exp or combat encounters? Just change them!
There is something to learn from every edition and RPG game and 5th edition makes its super easy to add or change the rules. That’s why 5e is my favorite edition!
