I remember my DM during the waning days of 2e complaining that the adventures were "being dumbed down" because they gave DM advice in the modules.Are you kidding? I remember people complaining that 2e was "dumbed down" or "too video-gamey" and they blamed the gold box games. I distinctly remember people saying THAC0 was too much like the computer games and that it belonged there.
Is there anybody making the argument that 5e has any video game elements to it? I don't think I've ever come across that notion anywhere. Not a single comparison. Not to Skyrim, Zelda, Call of Duty, Mario, anything.
