D&D 5E All character races are Medium-sized...why?

If only there was a way to solve problems in D&D via the players actions (like magic maybe) instead of changing the whole game to accommodate a need to just make things easier.

It’s like people can’t think around corners anymore and have to have the answer given to them on a platter.

5th Ed embracing that “easy mode” label.
More of a response to the lack of DM support in 5e. Players can only work within the limits of the DM's adjudication skill.

It's just a matter of consistency, convenience and "level playing field" for the game mechanics.

If certain races (species, really) were vastly superior to others, everyone would start using them, and ignore all of the less optimal choices.
But whether or not large species really are vastly superior to others is not objective. That's the issue. WotC again erred on the side of caution here.
