For my thousandth post, I cannot think of anything better to say than that I am a Dungeons and Dragons loving gooberhead who absolutely and completely loves the game!
I had a blast playing 1E and discovering the hobby with fresh eyes. Did more gaming under 2E than any other edition, including the most famous of famous campaigns in my circle of buddies. Enjoyed the dickens out of 3.X despite its crappy grappling rules, belittled monks, and wildcasting T-rex Druids. Have truly enjoyed a great 4E campaign with a strong story-line.
Like most all roleplayers, I own and have played dozens of systems from all kinds of different genres with all kinds of different rules. None of them can hold a candle to D&D for inspiring interesting stories and long running campaigns, no other rule set can be quite as fun as rolling a natural 20 on an attack roll when the chips are down and you know you have to kill the monster right now this roll.
I'm a lifelong D&D fan with memories of truly awesome campaigns, expectations of many more awesome campaigns in the future, and who has enjoyed every edition I've played and am hopeful and excited for however the stewardship of the D&D line continues forward whether it be 4E, 5E, or whatever. Give me a fighter, rogue, cleric, and wizard looking to bash some orc heads in with a d20 and I'm a happy dude.
