Yeah. And I saw a few that gave max hit points at first level, but by and large the vast majority just had you start with what you rolled, even if your fighter had 3 hit points at first level(1 + 2 for con).OK I gotcha, fair enough and yeah I saw tons of re-rolls, esp. at low levels but no-one say, making say, Wizards use a d6 for HP as an actual house rule or the like. When that happened it was an alternate class or something (and usually hilariously overvalued in balancing terms).
It was a bit different for those convention games with pre-generated PCs. They had to create the PCs with a certain fairness in mind, so the hit point rolls were most likely influenced in some manner.
