I'm probably taking a break from Pathfinder to explore 5th edition, both because I want to give the new system a test run and a real chance, and because I'm momentarily fatigued by Pathfinder. Guess what, that happens in almost all genres, hobbies, etc. and is not a sign that X sucks, just that versatility is good. I also play more than one board game or computer game, and even my most favorite game gets momentarily boring, if I don't play anything else once in a while.
What I've seen of 5th so far, it is the best edition Wizards have published so far FOR ME. Does it make it better than PF? No. It makes it different.
But while we are at the topic of editions, I'm one of the (maybe few) people who wouldn't mind seeing a Pathfinder Second Edition in 2-3 years. Not necessarily a completely new version, but something where the many options have been tuned, combined and collected in fewer places. Without using the Internet (thanks pfsrd) or HeroLab, it is currently very difficult to have a perspective of all the many (and wonderful) options available to you.
Anyways, this isn't a critique of the people working at Paizo, who do an amazing job.
